    Is it the MB or CPU? or WHAT???



      It's a long story, but I'll try to keep it short.

      Bought computer build kit, worked fine for 8 months then out of nowhere, black screen, it would boot up to "starting windows" screen, and freeze there.

      Replaced MB, same problem, tried booting from windows 7 disk, tried all combos of memory, (tested memory, it tested OK,) tried to boot from UBUNTU disk, got nowhere. I can get into BIOS.

      MB people tell me it must be CPU.

      It's been several months now,...getting desperate, need home computer to make a living with.

      here are specs,

      Intel i7-920

      MB  XFX MD-X58i CH09

      Graphic card   ECS GTX 275

      Corsair  TR3X6G1333C9 G   12 gigs

      Can anyone help, my next thought is to purchse another MB, but I'll be waisting $$$ if its the CPU.
