My System Specs

Default computer wont start properly

over the last couple months my computer has not wanted to start properly, it would start up and freezze when booting into windows and it didnt matter how many time i restarted it, it would just do the same thing, and after about 2-3 minutes of being on then it would boot into window fine and run fine. and now today when i started it the bios was wiped clean. any ideas.

here is what i have checked sofar, all cables are pluged in, videocard is not loose, cpu is seated properly with brand new tim and fan is working, all power cables are pluged in, ram is nice and secure.

what do you guy think and thanks for your help.

if the bios wiped itself, and the bios battery is still good(3 for a buck at the dollar store) then it maybe time for you to reset it overnight, then try again(fresh battery)

if no go..rma?

are you sure your other components are fine, ram,hdd,etc?

ubcd is your frend.

i took the computer completly apart and put it in a new case. once it runs i can run anything on it and it does fine, gaming burning ripping blurays, i can max it out and it runs fine, i will however finish backing everthing up and start with a fresh install of windows tomorrow.
