soo.... everything was going well for a few days. All I was doing was doing Windows updates each day, using WinMediaPlayer, and Internet Explorer.
Today I decided to turn on the Smart Fan. Upon exiting BIOS, the computer did not reboot, so I had to power it on manually. It started fine. I then transferred music files from an external HD to the computer and tried playing them. After about 45 seconds, the computer froze. It wouldn't start up right away. I had to wait about 3 minutes or so. I decided to go back into BIOS and disable the Smart fan. It rebooted fine until it asked me if I wanted to enter in safe mode or normal. I chose normal. Then it froze. I had to wait another 3 minutes or so before it would let me power up the computer again, but again it froze during start-up.
I reset CMOS (again) and did a quick startup repair and now windows started up fine. Can turning on smart fan really do this? will that hotfix above fix this problem??
