Custom build computer with :
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
MSI 790FX-GD70 DDR3 Motherboard
Mushkin Enhanced Silverline Stiletto 8GB
2x2TB sata drives in RAID 1
Computer worked great for 4 months and suddenly wouldn't boot...hangs on "starting windows". Can't load "repair computer" or "safe mode". Tried to boot to DVD but same thing. i.e. hangs and tried to boot from first and second burner.
Also, won't boot to W7 loaded on USB drive.
Disconnected hard drives, all external devises, USB media panel, etc (Just RAM, video card, and burner left). Still won't boot to DVD or USB drive. (Other machines will boot to same media).
Tried to boot to memtest cd and all I got was a scrolling "8000". Booted to a Microscope 2005 cd and ran motherboard test - passed. Running Microscope memory tests now but these take a long time, so in the meantime I thought I would see if any experts have encountered this and what they would suggest.
