I have a new build five weeks old. On a couple of occasions the computer partially shut down, and what i mean everything but the power supply and a couple of fans were off. I thought it was sleep or hibernation mode but i ruled that out. I could not wake up the computer with the power button (although i didn't hold it down for a few seconds) i was forced to wake it up with the reset button. I CANNOT DUPLICATE this problem it has not happened in about three days. Anyone know whats going on? Thank you so much.
O/S: Windows 7 Home Premium 32 Bit Service Pack 1 (build 7601)
Processor: Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel
HD Graphics 4000Power Supply: Corsair Gaming Series GS600 600 Watt ATX 12V Power Supply with Blue LED Fan
I tried the 64 Bit Version first but downloading programs became a hassle with compatibility. Not all programs are made for 64 Bit. I will try the cable thing, but the thing is i cannot duplicate this issue not it's been a few days and no problems. Could it have been new updates?? The machine is still installing them??
I don't think the new updates are the issue... It might be a corrupted install of windows or something...
But with the 32 bit os, you're not even using half of your ram (only 3 gigs of it actually since your graphics card takes up another 1 gig). and the 64 bit os should have 32 bit compatibility modes... and most programs have 64 bit versions now as well.
and that's really weird that the power button didn't work and the reset button did... sounds kind of like it was in hibernation but it couldn't get out of it...
I thought it was hibernation as well, but hibernation completely shuts the machine down, and i had fans still running when this happened. I am telling you i ran in to several programs that were not compatible with the 64 Bit the only one to come to mind off the top of my head is "unlocker" the program that force ably deletes files.
If this happens again should i do a Windows 7 repair, or reinstall?
