Recently my machine has been going crazy.
It all started when my video card was showing artifacts even though it wasn't overclocked. The next morning, the machine would constantly reboot shortly after the POST screen appeared. Sometimes my monitor wouldn't receive signals from my video card (I've checked the connections). I suspected a certain ram module to be at fault (older CorsairValue) and removing it seemed to fix my problems for a while. The next morning my computer wouldn't start and I heard unusual sounds from the case. I narrowed the sound to the PSU and have since replaced it.
Was it right to suspect a PSU failure?
fast forward...I've replaced my rosewill PSU to a seasonic s12 430w PSU. I also had to change my ram b/c the Corsair stick still prevents the computer from POSTing. Although It does work fine on another computer. Right now i'm using the problematic computer to type on this forum.
I was beginning to suspect that my motherboard/cpu/video card is failing. But right now everything seems to be working fine. So would it be safe to say that only my memory/PSU failed?
