Did the Razer install any software with it?

It is most likely a hardware problem which can be annoying because I know many external hard drives, floppy disks and sd,ms,mmc memory cards wont allow windows to boot up. just go to the razer site and get the support drivers if you haven't uninstall the keyboard and then reinstall it. If that doesn't solve the problem check out the knowledge base at the razer site and they should give you an answer. It is most likely a hardware failure which happens from time to time.

I think my pc has officially crapped out...My computer runs fine with no problems when it is on, i can stress test, play crysis, do everything normal when it is on...however if i shut it down for more then a few hours, it will not turn on. But if it was on and i restarted it, it would boot up just fine. I used to be able to fix this problem by moving the ram slots to different dims and resetting the CMOS, however at this moment it will not turn on no matter what i do...i took everything apart and put everything back together to see what could be loose, and nothing...any ideas?

So it just won't post or are you totally dead? Have you tested the PSU at all? You should probly replace that CMOS battery, too. If you don't have a 2025 battery laying around they're about $2-3 almost anywhere.

You don't always hear beeps with ram, only for certain problems with it.
