Hey everyone, I am new here but today I experienced some issues I need some help with. I have a my work computer and today it started to act up really bad. It would not turn on, i restart it, still nothing and then a few more tries later it will turn on. I also want to note I have NEVER overclocked anything.

I went and looked at the voltage rails and I have a low 3.3 volt rail.

Vcore @1.356
3 volt lead is between 3.000v and 2.952v
5 volt lead is @ 5.956
12 Volt lead is at 12.180

Anyway in the bios is it popping up telling me that the 3.3 is outta spec. I installed AI II and it just told me that I have a low 3.3 rail as well. Would this be the issues for the problem I am having? Again this is my work desktop and I cannot afford to have downtime. What are the risks of running it like this until I can get it fixed?

software monitoring is useless only way to be sure is to actually measure the voltage with a multimeeter
