Yesterday i was cleaning out my computer for dust becuase it restarted out of no where. I reseated my ram as well and then i put my cover back on powered it on and my computer wouldnt do anything it was just a black screen. It still turned on but no beeps nuthing. Then reseated my ram and cleared my cmos after that turned it back on. Then windows displays the boot screen and then finishes with a BSOD everytime. Reseated video card now windows just freezes right before it shows the boot screen. Tried safe mode, last known good configuration etc..... Any suggestions? Thanks for reply.

Sounds like motherboard could be failling. You reseated everything which would be my advice but dome that and also check for loose cables too. Reconnect everything back up even power cable too.

Could also be dead/dying memory. Try both sticks seperately (assuming you've got 512 x 2)

And also make sure SATA/PATA cables are pushed in all the way on the peripherals (HD, DVD Drive), not just the mobo.

Glad you have it working, PCChips motherboards are bottum of the barrel though.
