Built a new system three weeks ago. Everything was great for awhile.
Got BSOD a week ago, said "Memory Fault" caused the crash. Restarted it and never happened again.
Last night it shut down and said something like, "Your computer shut down to protect itself due to a power surge". The computer no longer shuts down. It will restart though. (Both through windows)
I have a surge protector. My 24 pin power connection is loose because it doesn't "click" in. It doesn't go far enough into the connector to lock in and the computer has shut off 2 or 3 times while I was fiddling inside the case when I bumped the power connection.
Could I have damaged the motherboard? Memory? Maybe corrupted the SSD?
In use everything seems to be running as normal. When I click on shutdown, it says "Shutting down" then the monitor turns off. All 7 fans and lights in my computer are still on though! What should I do?
Thanks for your help!
