after installing a new soundcard, PSU and GPU my comp was fine for a few hours... then i decided to install some audio utilities included with my soundcard and that's when it started. i was able to log onto my computer after the generic restart after install thing, then suddenly it shuts down.
i uninstalled my gpu and soundcard from the drivers thing and everything is fine... so i install again step by step to find the problem. i installed the x-fi drivers but in the middle of the installation my comp shuts down... now it wont even get into the user log in screen without the power switching off... what the buggery is going on?
looks like the only way to boot without a shut down is through safe mode... argh whats going on
is there a way to reformat without having to boot system disc? because when i boot from cd-rom the pc shuts down... if i reformat maybe it'll fix the issue.
