Any help please on this problem, ive Just built a new pc on the following spec
Intel core2quad q6600 2.4ghz 8mb cache
2gb corsair 800mhz ram
cit 750w power supply
asus p5nd sli mobo
antec gaming case
windows 7 ultimate
wd caviar 300gb hdd
Problem is i am trying to install windows 7, and after severall attempts the system restarts after about 5 mins of installing windows, and gives me a bios error code 1 long beep plus 3 short beeps this is a graphics card error according to award.
The annoying thing is once my system restarts i cant boot it up again because of the error which will only go away after about 30mins to 1 hour turned off. To me it seems to be a overheating issue as the graphics card seems pretty hot to touch, also noticed the north bridge chip is very hot as well and they are both right next to each other. In the bios the temperature for the mobo is averaging 51 degrees and cpu 45 is this normal?
Ive tried reseating the graphics card but still the same problem and it works fine in my other pc. ive even tried another card 9800gt.The case is massive and has 2 120mm fans front and rear so the components arn't crammed in close and the is enough space for cooling
I have also tried another psu, different ram and using minimal components to boot up.
Any help please
