Computer Died…

Visits: 64

My wife’s computer died last night. Can’t boot up. Showing boot failure error. Changed the HDD and still the same. I suspect is motherboard problem.

I have two computers that use the same mother board (Intel DQ45CB Mainboard with 2 DIV output), both are having same problem of AUTO REBOOTING from time to time. Initially I suspect memory or HDD problem. Formatted HDD, swapped memory and still the same.

Now, my suspicious goes to the motherboard, and I think very high chance the motherboard is giving problem.

The same HDD in my wife’s computer, now I swap it to my computer (same motherboard, so no need to reconfigure), I can booth up smoothly. This shows that the HDD is fine.

Going to get another motherboard later…definitely NO INTEL this time. 🙁
