    PC major failure

    Hi all, not such a short one this time Im afraid...

    There is the background: replaced old motherboard with Asus Maximus II Gene and added 4GB of Ram for a total of 8GB DDRII Ram. Setup Win 7 Pro 64 bit and installed all Hardware drivers etc again. My system ran perfectly with no overclocking or anything else for about 3 days. When I monitored it the temps where quite high but never at maximums and I ve never got any messages.

    So there comes the problem:

    Started my PC for a quick flight the fans go on for approx 3 secs and then turn of again. This repeats 2 times and then the fans start with min rpm and accelerate to probably max rpm in ca 2 mins. No screen no mouse no Bios no keyboard, just all black... What could that be? Burned something?

    Some hints maybe how to restore...

    Hi Lads

    Thanks for your PMs and Hints.

    I had to reset my MB and start up using the old Graphics card. Set the Bios settings to default again clear CMOS and then install the newer GPU.

    Simpler as I tought...
