Recently I haven't been able to boot from my computer it on any operating system (Windows 7, Windows 10, Arch Linux (live usb), Ubuntu Linux - all 64 bit) except Windows 7 safe mode. On Windows 7 normally, it gets partway through the "loading windows" screen (e.g. the colors move) and then freezes, no response from power button or reset switch, no error codes or beeps after POST. On the others it just displays a black screen after posting past the BIOS. I have tried isolating the computer to the integrated graphics and mobo, still the same issue. I've underclocked it, made sure secure boot was off (and on), replaced PSUs, and ran it without a CMOS battery. There are no drive issues (chkdsk), the ram is fine (memtest86), and I've tried every variation of display driver installations in safe mode (w/ DDU). It'll run the BIOS, and everything looks fine in there, and nothing had been changed from before it wasn't working to now. I don't even have XMP on. I'm not sure what exactly isn't working. I realize it's getting a bit old, but it feels a bit premature to die already. Thanks for any help you can give!
