That would be awesome!
i can probably work something up and add a pie chart aswel
I got Windows 8 RC, maybe give that a go and see.
That would be nice.
I'm back from vacation a bit early, and I have my C2Ds and running again. My i7 won't boot (Windows or Ubuntu) even if I underclock it and overvolt it; I'm afraid that the CPU may be dead. I'm not sure what I'll be doing about it Regardless, it's offline for the foreseeable future
Sucks about the i7 take a step back and go thru the rig again.... maybe it's just something loose???
leave it off overnight, battery out of mobo, maybe you put it back in tomorrow and it boots...
Those are good suggestions; it's off, unplugged, with the battery out for now. I'll see what happens with it tomorrow morning, but I'm not too optimistic
I'll poke at it and see what I can figure out/fix tomorrow
Will it post [Ion] ?
Yup, it posts fine, but it will reboot before Windows fully loads.
Did you try backing the memory down a little bit?
Try a different gpu. I had a system do the same thing wouldn't load windows or Ubuntu. It wouldn't even let me reinstall either. Found out the gpu was flaky. It had onboard graphics. I swapped in a dedicated cpu and thing booted fine.
I assume you tried to get into safe mode and all that?
I have not, although it's running at stock speeds.
I can't imagine that being an issue, but I'll throw in another one of the Geforce 8400GS cards I have.
It will actually boot in Safe Mode, but in Standard Move it will reboot itself before it finishes booting. If I have time, I'll try re-installing on a spare HDD I have tomorrow.
I had the same issue on my new rig 3 days after I built it. Try another set of memory if you have any and see if it boots into windows normally.
When that happened to me it was the memory that went bad. Swapping the G.Skill Snipers for some Corsair Vengeance did the trick.
This is the only DDR3 I have, but I will try it one stick at a time to see what happens
Or run Memtest...give er a whirl, keep us posted. If she posts then the cpu and mobo are good. I'm almost certain it's the memory.
The RAM is testing out fine, yet I still can't boot Windows...
I'll try another GPU in the morning, and if that doesn't work, another Windows install.
EDIT: Even down-clocking the RAM doesn't seem to let me boot Winblows....this isn't looking good
^^Anyone listened my music?^^
^^^Rate it please^^^
I know the team thread has a tendency to go a little OT, but this is probably the third post about your music in this thread in the last day or two.

Try to keep posts here about WCG related matters. Thank you.
I've swapped my GPU with another Geforce 8400GS (known good, I tested it in my Pentium D) and the computer still won't boot. Given that it won't boot Ubuntu from USB either, I can't imagine that it's the Windows install, but I'm going to try another install just in case. I've been using only one RAM stick at a time (both test good) just in case. Any other ideas?
Only thing I can think of is the HDD, but you said you can get to the desktop in safe mode. I would check the event log in safe mode with networking and see if you can find any error codes and troubleshoot from there.
Try aboot into windows normally then when it doesn't boot (note the time) then boot into safe mode with networking and check the event log.
If that yeilds no results my next step would be back up important files to a network drive and do a fresh install.
I would do the same, if Ubuntu and windows can't boot, I would backup everything, and test everything:
-Stress test CPU, GPU, etc..
I'd probably blame windows bro. Keep us posted.
ion you could be right about the board as you have tested with windows and Ubuntu. and even tried to boot for a usb stick with Ubuntu. That should have ruled out the hdd and your windows install. And testing with another gpu should only leave 3 things that could be at fault, cpu, mem, or the board itself. You have tested the memory.
But isn't he able to boot properly while in safe mode?
