    I'm having some trouble with my computer. When I hit the power button and turn it on the screen comes up with the bios and boot options to select. Then it shows "initializing" at the top and then goes dark...after that the monitor shows the "no signal" that seems like the monitor has been disconnected but computer is still running.

    I have to turn power off in back and restart...when I try to get in bios or boot options with DEL or F12 it still does the same thing...won't go in to bios or boot options

    I know the DEL and F12 I'm pressing are registering because if I press them too many times I hear the low pitched beeps sound telling me I'm pressing too many buttons lol. Any thoughts on what issue this may be?

    I have a custom built system. has a gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 motherboard w/DDR3 DIMM memory sockets. Sound Blaster Zx SB1506 sound card. 500w Fatality OCZ power supply, a closed loop liquid cooling system for processor. samsung solid state drives.


    one day it was working and the next it started with this issue. didn't do anything different.

    The easiest thing to try first is unplug the computer, then take out the bios battery for a few seconds. If that doesn't help (which it probably won't), try reseating the video card and ram. If that doesn't help and the motherboard has onboard video, then remove the video card and try the computer with the onboard video.

    If there is a PXE mentioned, it is trying to boot from a network drive rather than the installed ssd. Are you sure the ssd works?

    That sounds like the keyboard is not being recognized. If you have a spare keyboard, try that to see if you can get into the BIOS. It would help to see if the ssd is shown.

    If you know someone who can create a linux boot device (DVD or USB stick) you could boot from that and perhaps determine if the ssd is even seen.
