I have acquired a dead computer and would like to try and fix it. The problem is this:
Computer powers up, makes all normal noises, beeps once (although very loudly!) all looks fine. Then where you would expect to see the windows loading screen there is a flash of what might be a blue screen. It's too quick to see what it says. Then it instantly restarts itself and goes onto the windows safe mode screen (the one where you can select how windows loads). At this point the keyboard no longer works, have tried different keyboards both USB and the other way (cant remember the other connection! - pci?) and still no luck so have to wait until the countdown finishes then it goes through the same thing again, doesn't load windows, reboots etc...
I have been into the bios and all looks normal, have removed the soundcard, changed graphics card, changed hard drive but still the same thing happens. Anyone got any ideas? I'm stumped.
