    Desktop wont Boot


    The desktop in my specs will not boot. I was testing out mounting a Macrium image on my desktop running the latest Skippy build. I was able to mount a older image created by a earlier version of Macrium. Next I tried mounting the newest image created with the newest version of Macrium which caused a GSOD. The computer didn't reboot automaticly so I hit the reset button. Then I tried mounting a different image causing a GSOD. I had to hit the reset button to get the computer to restart. The boot got as far as the Asrock screen and froze. The reset button didn't do anything so I held in the power button. Now the computer won't boot. The lights come on and the fans work. i have tried removing anything not necessary even the SSD and HDD and restarting with no luck. I have tried resetting the memory and power connectors to the motherboard. The monitors are not receiving any signals. The next thing I'm going to try is restarting with the memory removed to see if I get any beeps. Could this be a bad power supply or videocard?

    Edit: I removed the memory and there wasn't any beeps. I don't know if my desktop has a built in speaker so I don't know if this shows a motherboard problem or not.

    If it's the motherboard I would appreciate any suggestions for a newer board to replace a Asrock H110M-HDV motherboard.

    Have you tried clearing the CMOS? (Jumper, between the SATA ports and the ATX power connector.) It's an obvious thing, but I see no mention of it in your diagnostics.

    I believe that there is no speaker on the motherboard. There'll be no beeps unless there is a separate one in the PC case.

    I tried just about everything I can think of. I even removed the video card and tried using the onboard video. I'm going to try another power supply as soon as I find my spare.

    1) Run though the POST troubleshooting and beep codes in these links:

    What is POST?
    Computer POST and beep codes
    POST troubleshooting steps

    2) If the computer is able to POST then find three flash drives that you can format ( > or = 8 GB)

    3) On a working computer create a bootable Windows 10 iso flash drive:
    Download Windows 10

    4) On a working computer create a Kyhi boot rescue flash drive:
    Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk - Windows 10 Forums

    5) The third flash drive may be used depending upon the results of the above steps.

    If you need to replace the board, looks like there are many to choose from at Newegg. You need to search on Socket 1151. If you want another micro ATX, check both the microATX and uATX boxes in the power search.

    I just finished trying to clear the CMOS again and it didn't help. I looked for my spare power supply from a old computer and can't find it. I'm starting to think that I may have used in another computer I was fixing up for a family member. Tomorrow I'll try swapping the memory to see if one went bad. With my luck it's probably the motherboard or cpu. If I do have to replace the motherboard I'm going to go ahead and upgrade from the i5 to a i7.

    Except for the lights and the fans nothing is working.

    See if you can find a friend, neighbor, relative, or local computer store to swap the motherboard and other major hardware components.
    If swapping is not possible see if you can find a local computer store to test the major components.

    We have one local mom & pop repair shop. If I can catch a guy named Chris that works there when he's not to busy he may be able to help me diagnose the problem.
