kais246;4926068Yeah thats what we assumed,

Uhm, which board are we referring to here? Your fried board, or his good one?

Because I've lost track of what is going on.

You swapped CPUs, you put which into which? Which board(s) did you power on?

Sorry. What he did was take his working CPU and put it in the dead motherboard. He then removed the CPU from the dead motherboard and put it back into a working one, it is now failing to boot.

Did you put the bad motherboard in the working case, with the working power supply?

Also, can you get into the bios before the PC restarts? If so, check the temperature to be sure nothing is overheating.

Uh... Why did he do that?

That's the exact opposite of what we have been saying. By placing the good CPU in the damaged mobo there is a chance that it might have screwed the CPU up.

I dont know... Prolly something i said =P Anyway he seems to think that all his problems spawn from some SFF Recovery switch. *EDIT* So it started now, like i said, something to do with that switch.
