Hi,
I am not sure this is the appropriate forum.
My situation is:
I have installed the game last night. It constantly blue screen.
error code determined it was memory problem. So I raised the voltage until it is stable.
No more blue screen during game play afterward. I normally shut the PC down. This is Day 1.

Day 2:
I start FFXIV right away and played continuously 6hrs. No blue screen at all. CPU never goes over 55'C while GPU never goes over 68'C. However, CPU fan(stock) went to 5kRPM, so it was really noisy. I shut down the PC for dinner, and afterward it wont boot again. (no POST beep, no visual)

I reset the CMOS. No effect
Changed different RAM and different slot. No effect, but it would beep when there is no RAM
I even reseated the CPU, still no effect.

From above record I see no possibility of overheat, and if overvolt the RAM then the other RAM should have worked.
So I am really troubled at what really happened to my PC, after only 10 hrs of game play.

Spec:
CPU: PhenomIIx4 955
MB: ASUSM4A785TD-V EVO 785G
RAM:PATRIOT 2x2GB DDR3 PGV34G1333ELK
PSU: CoolerMaster 600W
GPU: MSI R5830

Thanks for your attention.

The only thing I could tell you is take apart your pc peice by peice checking the simple stuff first. Power to the power supply power out of the power supply then unplug stuff. and see if power supply comes back up. I had a similar problem the other day except mine shut the pc down while I was away. Turned out my GTS 250 was shorting out my power supply. Power supply would come on until i plugged it onto the 250 then it would fault protect out.

Sounds like you are not getting video for some reason but the PC is actually booting.

I recommend you to isolate the problem, try replacing the video card or using your on board video (if you Mobo has it), and check if you get an image on the screen.

If the problem persist it's almost certainly involved with your RAM in some way.

ok!
it turns out that the GPU has no problem as well! either the buggy wireless card fault or I moved the PC too hard and connection goes loose.
Thank you very much!
