Hello, I was using my computer the other day and it started behaving poorly in Windows 7 so I did a restart. The computer then stalled on the 'windows icon' loading screen. I thought this might be a HDD error.
I tried to reinstall the OS from CD and during installation it also stalls at a point. There is never a hard reset, instead it get a moving icon wheel or the pulsing windows logo but nothing happens after a great deal of time. I thought then that memory might be an issue so I ran memtest86 for several hours with no errors. What makes me think this might be the PSU is when I went into BIOS I saw that the PSU fan was giving me a read of ~300-350 RPM and was highlighted in red. I thought perhaps that some motherboard settings might be causing the computer to stall because of an unsafe fan speed so I disabled monitoring of all these settings but it still fails. I don't have a similar PSU to try replacing with in the system.
The overall specifications are:
Thermaltake TR2 RX 1200w psu
Intel 2600-k i7
16 gb ddr3
2x geforce 480 gtx
P8P67 Deluxe motherboard.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I don't know what else to try before attempting to replace PSU.
