Power Spike? Computer no longer booting into windows

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have a corsair HX520W.

About half an hour ago I experienced a power spike (1 second blackout) in my house.

The computer with above PSU was on at the time.

Since then I am unable to boot into windows, it keeps on asking me to start normally, safe mode, and last known good config.

After choosing any one of those after a few seconds of windows splash screen the computer reboots.

 

Any help in figuring out and solving this problem would be appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance

I would reset your BIOS via the CLRTC jumper and test the system with one memory module at a time and see if you can get into the BIOS. If you can get into the BIOS then load setup defaults, save and exit and let us know if you still have the same problem!

I can get into the bios fine and at the moment it has been reset to defaults, just cannot get into windows.

 

I'll give the clrtc jumper a try.

I'm currently running memtest86+ which i noticed mentioned elsewhere to help rule out motherboard and ram.

I haven't got round to clrtc jumper yet, but the computer passed the memtest.

I'm starting to suspect that my hard drive may be corrupted / damaged. At least c drive is affected, currently showing in recovery console as unknown, other partition appear fine.
