Hey, anyone alive in here?

Recommended Posts



Say if ones pc's rebooting on start up, no matter what. Safemode, regular boot, even trying to install with winbloows CD i'ma guessin I got a bit of a hardware issue?


System is kinda old so I would like a little guidance on whats the good stuff out there. Don't want to drop $3k on a system. No games on it so it doesn't need to be the fastest out there. Would like to stay AMD since this one has done me good.


Currently the drives are setup in Raid 5, Any chance I can swing them into a new MB and retian the data on them?

If you use the same brand of raid controller you should be able to rebuild the array and keep your data.


All of that hardware looks fine, I might get corsair ram instead of Kingston though.


Make sure you get 2 sticks for dual channel memory. 2x 4 gb or 2x 8 gb


Video card will work fine unless it's a 10 year old agp card.

I thought that was 2 sticks of DDR3, but it looks like a single. I will pick a different one.


Since it is alive right now and it's so close to the cyber deals I am going to hold off if it will run that long and see if I can get some better deals.


Any idea why the bump in voltages made it work again? Power supply flakey, Ram or CPU? MB gettin old? I'm guessing this system was built in 09/10 time.

Ive had a crucial or 2 die. Ive had lots (5 or 6) samsungs, no problems. Samsung EVO is where its at. Just bought a 1tb Evo from amazon warehouse for $377


Could be a bad CPU or bad Power supply, I would definitely get a new PSU when you replace the motherboard. Something like a corsair builder's series.
