Last week, I was laying in bed when I heard my computer restart. I glanced over at it and it was stuck at loading the master boot record off my hard drive. I didn't have the time to investigate, so I tried powering it off by holding down the power button. It did nothing, nor did the restart button, and I had to remove the power cord.
Now, every time I push the power button, it turns on for a couple of seconds, then it turns off for a few seconds, then back on for a copule of seconds, and the process repeats.
So far, I have tried clearing CMOS, removing my sticks of ram, and a different power supply, but I haven't had any luck.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do?
This is a custom-buit computer with the following specs:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 @ 2.83Ghz
EVGA GeForce 9800GTX
4gbs mushkin ddr3 ram
2 640gb 7200rpm Western Digigal hdd's
20x Sony DVD+/-R SATA
750watt Corsair PSU
EDIT: This ended up being a motherboard issue. Apparently, the board was struck with the infamous Gigabyte 'boot loop.' I ended up RMA'ing the board, and everything is working perfectly now
