cant boot into safe mode, it wont output anything to the monitor and I cant access bios menu.
I press the power button (on the mobo) and it runs for several seconds and then shuts down and restarts, over and over again until I power down manually while holding power button.
Im going to try and unplug all optional components. i.e., graphics, hdd, cdroms.
Im starting to think its a defect mobo. I purchased it a year ago and it could possibly have faulty capacitors. I'm going to continue to investigate. Although, I cannot find any complaints about this issue with this MSI Z77A mobo.
