Dual Boot System Won't Boot [Problem Solved]

Post by OneSpirit »

I have linux and windows 7 on my amd rig. When I tried to boot up today into linux nothing happen. Then I tried to boot into windows. I got to the bios and set the boot to windows, instead I got a boot menu for linux, so I had it test the ram and I got a bad reading. I have two memory mod so I tried to test each one with the bootable memory test. With one memory removed it would not even boot into the bios. I tried the other stick and tried one in the two slots I am using still it will not boot up not even into the bios. All I have to go on that the memory is bad is the test linux did. Also I an hearing some kind or reoccurring sound while I am waiting for it to boot. Could it be the WD M.2 2280 250GB drive?

Wellsir ... since the amd rig would not go into the bios I suspected the P/S even though I got some power where the screen would come on and I see the blinking cursor. So I used a spare p/s I have and now I am back in business. 8)
