After just upgrading my computer today to the new sandy bridge line im experiencing some problems with the computer. I am unsure what it is, so i thought i should post here as im a little worried. The symtoms are whenever i go to turn on the PC or restart, it sometimes has trouble "starting up"in that it will start, load the motherboard logo and then Suddnely shut down and 2 seconds later restart. This happens 80% of the time the PC is booting up (especially if i click "DEL" to enter BIOS - weird?) So if i leave it, it usually just starts up fine? Once started and into windows i havnt experienced any random shut downs.
ALSO:: Ive stressed tested the CPU with prime 95 and it ran for 10mins without any problems, but i stopped because the temperature was around 72 so didnt want to hammer it with that PSU...
thanks i tried updating the bios, but the problem persists. So could it be PSU? just weondering wether i should go out and buy one today (thermaltake toughpoer 875W before while im waiting for corsair?)
The restart ONLY occurs when i hit the reset button on my case....It causes a clear and distincitive boot loop that basically goes like this:
HIT REST and computer restarts
Hits LOGO screen, computer shuts down and then turns back on 3 seconds later
Computer boots up properly
EVERYTIME i hit the reset button and no other time...
