    Infinite loop after installing new PSU


    I just changed my PSU on my PC and it worked just fine yesterday. However, today I did*some cable management in my machine. When I started my system, it got caught into a loop that won’t let me log into Windows. These are 2 of the images that I see while going through this loop. What do I do to get it back? Thanks!

    The 2 images appear to not be there. Could be my machine, but......

    Those are your BIOS boot screens and the automatic repair is saying it cannot find the OS or cannot boot to it, and is looping. I would imagine after 3-4 times, it just shuts down. Better re-check the cable management you did and make sure the Sata port cables are in the right slots, and snugged.. Check all other cables you may have moved or changed. Rule of thumb wih a sudden situation like this is "Go back to the last thing you did". Re-check all your work, and power back up, try again. Best I can offer right now.

    I was thinking the same thing. That's why I labeled the cables before connecting them. Let me ask you... And I know this may be silly. Is that SATA connector the exactly the same as the DVD Rom jack?

    It sounds like you need to recheck all of the cables you moved before.

    I would follow each one, remove it and replace it, make sure it is seated securely.

    You might have bumped into another cable by accident and its either off or not seated correctly,
    so check all of the ones you can see and get to.

    That's exactly what it was. Thanks for your simple yet, tremendous help!
