Expert Hep Needed, Possible PSU Issue

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone,

 

I've been through a month long system diagnosis trying to solve the problem that's been going on with my PC and I've made 0 progress.

 

My PC went down over a month ago. The first thing that happened was a BSOD. When I would reboot from the BSOD I would get the message "boot mgr missing". Naturally I thought that my SSD went down so I started a fresh Windows install on a regular HDD. This went fine up until about an hour of running and I get the same exact thing BSOD then into a "boot mgr missing" on the reboot. I should mention when I would go into the bios the drives would not appear after the BSOD. The only way I could get the drives to appear again would be to clear CMOS.

 

After troubleshooting as much as I could, running memtest, pulling out one video card, different hard drives I settle on the fact that it was most likely my motherboard. I sent it off for RMA to Asrock and just got it back a couple days ago. Obviously the problem did not go away. Now I will get a blue screen but when I reboot my machine I don't get "boot MGR missing" the drive appears normally. I don't have as many drives plugged into it so I'm thinking that might be a factor on the boot mgr thing.

 

Before I sent my motherboard for RMA I used a multimeter on my PSU and I thought everything came back normally. I didn't test it completely I just did a couple of the connections but they all came back with the correct voltages. I didn't test it under load or anything like that.

 

When the machine BSODs it comes back with kernel power failure which from what I've read can be pretty much anything.

 

That's it. I don't know where to go from here. The only thing left to not be working properly would be the PSU that's why I've landed in this support forum. Any help would be appreciated.

Check boot device priority and make sure it's booting from an HDD/SSD and not a USB Port, etc...

 

Flash the latest BIOS

 

that's all i got, good luck!

It does not sound like a PSU issue but I would try and use an adapter cable and connect the HDD to a 4-Pin Molex and see if you still have the issue. Also if a friend can maybe help you test your PSU on another system or barrow another PSU to test on your system that might help take the PSU out of the equation.
