My system has been running fine. Last night I installed a game 'section 8 prejudice' and this morning I got around to playing it.
About 5min in, my computer restarts itself and now it won't post. I tried switching vid cards. I lowered ram to 1 stick and cycled between the different ram. I removed the ram completely, no beeps. I took my voltmeter and got about 7v on one line and about 12.5 on another...(the ones that plug to the video card) 8 day wait at local shop to get it looked at. I am considering just buying a new mobo a installing it myself, tho I have never installed a mobo before and want to make sure I don't mess up a new 300$ board. Thanks in advance.

Before you go ahead and replace parts, first determine if this game is the root cause of the problem. Uninstall it and then check the operation of the computer.
