Hi Guys,

I'm having some serious fun attempting to fix my PC!!!

This morning I attempted to turn on my PC after shutting down as normal last night after gaming & it wouldn't power up properly - no display etc.

I did some internet searching for solutions & I did the usual process of checking all hardware and connections etc.
The error code displayed on my motherboard seemed to be connected to ram so I remounting my ram. I also remounted graphics card & cleaned slight dust etc.



I can now power up my PC & access BIOS. HOWEVER - If i let my pc continue to boot as normal - it will try to start windows but then I get blue screen of death and it crashes & restarts.

Is this cause I remounted the RAM? I have no idea?!

I've atttempted startup repair etc with no luck - but after browsing the web for ideas I noticed some posts here suggesting downloading & running Farbar to do a scan???

I figured I had nothing to loose so I've given it a crack!

Can anyone shed any light to my problems?

Does anyone have any suggestions of anything else I should try?

Cheers
Travis

Probable memory error. Try removing 1/2 the ram then test. Swap the removed and installed and test again. If it's a memory problem, one way it work work and the other it will fail, so replace the defective ram.

This morning I've also attempted to use system restore after booting from win7 as I have 3 possible restore points to choose from.

However when I attempt to restore windows eventually advises it cannot complete successfully - unspecified error during system restore (0x8000ffff)

I don't know but I don't think the RAM is faulty - as I've swapped out the RAM during initally testing & there wasn't any issues and i continue to get the boot error - the ram is picked up fine in BIOS and also no errors reported in windows memory test as part of startup repair.

If I allow startup repair to attempt to fix the issue it shows the following error

Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically
Problem signature:
Problem event name: StartupRepairOffline
Problem signature01: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem signature02: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem signature03: unknown

Problem signature05: AutoFailover
Problem signature06: 3
Problem signature07: NoRootCause
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1

Does this help shed anymore light into my problems?

Thanks in advance

You said you reseated the ram, but did you actually remove 1/2 at a time and test?

I apologise - I stand corrected - It looks like 1 stick is faulty as reporting errors in memtest86+

I have since removed RAM and been running tests on the remaining 1 stick. It has past tests with no errors reported.

I have attempted to reboot - still no success.
