Create Account How it Works

My computer will not get past Startup Screen.

My computer was working fine until on the last good startup, then it just reached the startup screen and it stalls and goes black. It goes to Windows Startup screen, past the setup screen, then it just stops. I tried to load a new operating system (Win7 instead of Vista): It loaded the startup files and got to the same place after loading the startup screen and just stops.

I have replaced everything. New 4GB of ram (kingston), new Intel core 2 Quad processor (had dual core), EVGA GeForce 9800GT video card (had 9600), sent motherboad back under warranty (they said they repaired it, and received and replaced it back (ASUS P5N-D). It has two Sata Hard drives. A Western Digital 750GB Hard drive was primary and a secondary Seagate 500GB. I swapped the two hard drives around, to no avail. (Saw no reason to replace them.)

I have spent a small fortune on new parts and am out of ideas. I would really appreciate some solid help. :)
