Reinstalled windows - not a hardware issue. Occurs when I put in a linux live disc as well.
Replaced CPU, but it still occurs. Ran mem tests - no warnings, updated bios, ensured that I have all the latest stable versions of drivers... and it still crashes. As far as I know, it's not because of a disable device to save power thing.
The screen freezes, if sound is playing, then that instance gets repeated and can not move the mouse or use the keyboard (keyboard light gets turned off --> no power to keyboard). System restarts after 15 or so mins.
and finally what fans are running? also try reinstalling your bios newest version and update if after you do that it still does this then use the second newest
so newest 9/2/44343 <------- not this one
second newest 9/1/44342 <-- this one(if reinstalling the newest version again does not work)
Hope this helped!
I've already reset CMOS before but the system still messed up.
Everything seems to have the right connections.
I'm on a Antec DF85 case - which it comes assembled... here is a list copied from some website: 1. Rear 12cm Fan x 12. Front:12cm Fan x 13. Top:12cm Fan x 1 (Maximum Supports 12cm Fan x 2)4. Side:22cm LED Fan with switch x 1 (Maximum Supports 12cm Fan x 6)
Also, no standalone sound card - using the inbuilt one on the mobo.
Tested the PSU and it all worked.
I'll run that burn test and post results as well as downgrade my BIOS version to F10 from F11.
Edit: Ran burn test for 15 mins (trial only allowed that), no errors, temps seemed fine.
