Hi all, Im new here although Im pretty familiar with computers. The issue I'm having is like nothing ive seen before so Im pretty confident it is a hardware issue. To sum it up, the computer starts but fails at random points in the startup. Here is the breakdown of the common errors in percentages of times ive tried to start it up. 30% nothing happens, no visual or audio responds although the computer is clearly on 40% computer freezes on motherboard start up screen (with function options on it) 15% computer chirps an inconsistant number of times (i counted, although every time was different) 1 time computer started, running normally, i quickly backed up a few school items on a flash drive and than started browsing reddit , upon watching a video on youtube it froze. 1 time the computer went into an endless loop of beeps 1 time it went to boot and i received an error message regarding the boot proces. currently i started it until i was able to access the bios and booted linux from an external hard drive, although this isnt helping with the error checking. *Note: the computer failed while i was home over spring break, crazy thing is im extra cautious and had unplugged it so that weeds out surges. My current suspension lies in the power supply, although thats just a guess and i dont want to start randomly replacing parts as that gets expensive on the budget of a college student. Thanks for any advice and all recommendations are welcome!
