bad mobo or processor?
Hey guys, I'd appreciate some confirmation in my suspicions before I purchase a new motherboard tomorrow.
I had issues with my computer starting around four months ago. Booting took forever, and it I had to turn it off and on several times before it would boot into Windows. I have an AS ROCK EXTREME 4 Z87 mobo. It eventually got to the point where it simply wouldn't boot. The error codes I received were fast and various. I think I narrowed the issue down to bad RAM slots. I noticed that if I moved the RAM to any other slots, the computer would start, and then die. I switched RAM with a friend of mine, and his computer would start, but mine would repeat the process of starting, and then dying, with his RAM inserted.
The only thing which confuses me is that I thought I would receive a solid error code on my mobo instead of several fast ones, if the RAM slots were bad.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
