|Hi. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me with this issue. Also, sorry for the length, I thought it necessary to explain my problem.|
I recently built my first system six months ago. I purchased my components from newegg and assembled the system without difficulty. My BFG Tech power supply was making a chirping noise so I RMAd it and got a new one. The one I got in return initially made a chirping sound when I connected it, but the sound disappeared shortly after connection so I proceeded without much incident.
My question is that when I try to boot the system, the BIOS flashes and windows starts to load, but right before it seems like the system should boot into windows, a BSOD flashes quickly and then the screen goes black and the system reboots.
This happens frequently, almost every time I have to reboot the system. I started to troubleshoot it and removed one of my two video cards because I thought it could be a video card issue. I have tested the system with just one of the video cards installed, and I had no issues (I tested each one individually).
As soon as I put both video cards into the system together, my problem resumed. I am wondering if this could be a video card issue still? Maybe I am overlooking something? I don't think it is because each one seemed to work fine on its own, but I am new to building my own systems.
I am thinking that it is more likely a power supply issue. Maybe my power supply is going bad like the other one? Any help would be much appreciated. I am really stuck.
My system specs:
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 Motherboard
2 - EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 275
LG Blu Ray optical drive
2 - WD 1TB 7200RPM HD
BFG Tech 1200 Watt Modular Power supply
6GB of Corsair DDR3 RAM
I think that's all the relevant information. Thanks again to anyone that can help.
