    My box is:
    EVGA nForce 790i SLI FTW Motherboard, 775 socket
    Intel Q9550 Quad
    8 gigs DDR3
    GTX 275

    I turned off my computer one night, and turned it back on the next morning. When I started it back up, the first half of the text loaded very quickly, and then it started to appear one character at a time. It reaches "warning, system is in safe mode" after about ten minutes, but I can't enter the bios from there.

    I talked to a local computer repair guy, and he thought it might've been either memory or my CPU, so I replaced my heat sink and put on new thermal compound. I also tested each stick of my memory individually, but I haven't been able to get any combination to work. I've disabled each part and tried to boot the computer without them, to the same effect.

    Do you have any suggestions? Quite honestly I'm stumped.
