    It won't even boot in to safe mode now...I'm not sure what I can do at this point :(

    I'll try another HDD in a bit (I've already tried 4 different GPUs....3 8400GSs and the new GTX460-1GB). It's looking like I'll have to send the board/CPU back to Bogmali :(

    On the upside, however, I picked up a new laptop:

    I bet it's a driver to do with your motherboard. Since it boots into safe mode it's a good bet that's what it is. Ion, did you update any drivers lately?

    Have you tried booting to last known good configuration? What about running startup repair?

    As I just said, it won't even boot into safe mode at this point. I'll mess with it more this afternoon and see what I can accomplish. I can't imagine it's a driver, or Ubuntu should work fine (it did a few weeks ago, at least).

    Hmmm. Then I would think failed mobo then. Look for physical damage to the board if you haven't already. This includes removing it from the case and checking the backside. Since you had it OC'd and crunching.... There is a chance of hardware failure. Hopefully not as bad as the mobo Brandon lost recently. The VRMs blew up if I remember right.

    Yeah at this point pretty sure it's hardware. Let us know when you try the other HDD ION.

    I think he can RMA the board through the previous owner. So in that case I would rather do that and end up with a new board. Now if he couldn't RMA, then I'd definitely look into repairing it if it was possible.

    Look up. Look way up.

    Not the Mobo unless it's the IMC which I doubt because it posts. and Ion tested the memory and it's good.

    Sounds like HHD about to fail to me at this point.

    Have you tried booting Ubuntu off a disk or USB?

    If so then it might be HDD. This is why I always have a Seatools disk handy.

    I posted up a FS thread. Selling off a gtx260, 8800gts, phenom II 550 and a sound card. Once it all goes I should be able to upgrade one of my systems from the Athlon II x2 with a Phenom x6.

    Well, I never was able to get the i7 working, so it's been packaged up and I'll be sending it out next week (Bogmali has generouslthy offered to give me a refund). I've cannibalized the CPU, mobo, and RAM out of one of my sales computers and stuck that in my desktop for now. Once Bogmali gets the parts, I'm going to start looking for another i7&mobo or an AMD X8/mobo

    Got the 1045T rig back up and running last night thanks to some assistance from Mad Shot :toast:

    I'm up to a whopping 76 points on it! :laugh:

    May be back in the running for a bit of pie when the rig gets up to full speed :D
