IP35E now stuck in constant reboot...
Well my custom rig was working as good as I could ask for for a while, until last night it froze while playing an old game (original Red Alert), so I had to manually shut it down. And now when I turn it on, it just gets to the 'windows loading' screen and then the screen goes black, and it reboots, and then it repeats.
The only thing I had to do to get the Original Red Alert to play was run in it "windows 95 compatability mode."
I tried clearing the CMOS by the directions in the IP35E manual, to no success.
I have an IP35E board, Intel Q6600 Processor, two 1GB sticks of Crucial ballistix ram, a GEforce 8800GTS 512mb card, and Seagate HD. Antec 500 case with an antec 550W power supply. I am using Windows XP Pro.
Was humming along nicely until recently. All that has been played on it are a few of the Command and Conquer games, Battlefield 2, and my sister plays Sims 2 on it. All were playing smooth as glass.
Any advice? I'm headin off to school now but I will check back in a few hours when I return.
This forum has done wonders for me before, I'm sure this time will be no different!!
