Please check the fan if it touches the assembly. Uninstall the driver at safemode and boot again in normal mode and install the driver again. Else, check or clean your registry using known software tools for this. Good luck.

No display or beeps, Tried everythin, and out of ideas

ok, you seem to have covered most of the normal trouble shooting procedures.. Now, you say it beeps when you take all the ram sticks out but does nothing when you fit ram. My first impression is that this is a ram issue. Maybe the ram is not compatible with the board or has been damaged. This can also be the case if the board itself is damaged. It could be that the i/o controller chip may have thrown in the towel and fitting ram causes the board to access this chip. No ram means control passes over to the BIOS error routines and the i/o chip is NOT accessed. Or, it could be both.. Try the ram sticks in another PC first. Static discharge damage is very common, even if you have the anti-static mats etc. I have mats, a wrist strap even my workbench is grounded along with my soldering station etc but I have still damaged boards through static discharge. I have also found that some brands of Ram simply do not work with certain boards so try the ram in another PC first !! Also, make sure that the ram you are using is correct and that you are NOT mixing different sizes or speeds. Next, make sure that non of the USB ports in the case are connected and that the boards own USB ports are not damaged as a bent pin in a port will always cause issues. Sorry that this may not be much help but as I said before, you are covering all the bases, the beeps without ram are making me lean towards a ram issue though..

Computer not booting

Try This :

First Shut down the computer completely
As soon as you turn on the computer keep on tapping F8(instantly) continously ....
It will bring up Advanced boot option
Hightlight "Last Known Good Configuration" and Hit enter
Check if it works ... If still it doesn't work
Do the same thing go to Advaced boot option(pressing F8)
Select "Safe mode with networking"
See if it works
If you reach the desktop screen purchase a USB flash drive and copy the entire data in it

Otherwise take out your hard drive take it to a near by store
They will back it up on a flash drive

Abit kn9 sli overheating ??

The problem could be a failed electronic component, and no cooling remedy will solve the problem. When some components fail, they result in high heat conditions.

No display

When you turn it on do you get a POST or a Startup screen at all? If so do you know how to enter the BIOS and check if it has a graphics card or on-board GFX? If it's on-board you will have to get it checked by a pro as it could be the chipset or the GFX chip that has failed. The system boards are not cheap even to buy on eBay so it might not be economically viable to fix. If you're confident enough the only thing you can do is a trouble shooting session. First ground yourself by touching a radiator pipe or something that is earthed and without wrenching take out the RAM(push out the spring clips), clean the connector strips and blow out the slots. Replace and try to boot(its amazing how RAM can play havock with a system). If you have no joy with that you will need to take the video card out(if it has one) and do the same with that, be careful though, some GFX cards use the CPU heatsink as the cooling device and you will need new TIM(thermal interface material) for both. If still no joy take out the GFX card and revert to on-board graphics through the Bios if possible(most don't have on-board GFX). If you still can't get it to work then then that's about all you can do yourself without help or spending money. You either need a friend that doesn't mind messing with his laptop so you can try your card in it or take it to a repair shop for testing.

Pc restarts in between the games

is it summer now there? It sounds like heating problems. If you keep the system very cool does it still do the same? (Try opening your side panel, and putting a fan in front of it, blowing into your case, also check to make sure that the fan on the gfx card can spin freely and isn't hampered by dust particles. Also do you have thermal paste? i recommend taking your cpu heatsink off, wiping off the old paste, and applying new paste. I've seen thermal paste get old and then cause this kind of problem. If that still doesn't work, try drivers like bunny recommended. Good luck! :)

No signal in PCIe slot 1 With new graphics card

Have you checked how the BIOS is setup to recognize the added video card? You may have to change a setting in there. It could be that it thinks the old card is still there or you may need to uninstall the old cards drivers and then install the new cards drivers after reboot.

Blank screen at boot up

Sounds like you need a new motherboard how old is his computer but, before you start looking for a new board try resetting the main board jumpers maybe that will get it to work and if there are no jumpers remove the battery from the motherboard this does the same thing.

Monitor wont come out of standby

You got two outlooks, a fried motherboard or a fried component. If you have integrated graphics then its probably your motherboard, if you have your own, separate graphics card installed then it could have to do with your graphics card.

Google is your friend. It might not be damaged hardware, just some bug.
