Here are our recommendations to narrow this issue:
Test the system out of the chassis on a minimal configuration (minimum memory installed).
Clear the CMOS battery for 30 minutes, restore defaults in the BIOS and clear the event log.
Ensure your power supply has at least 450 watts. Test with a different one.
Make sure this is a clean installation of the Operating System using the latest drivers and latest BIOS update from our website:
In case that the motherboard was defective, when the replacement is done, it is done on a like for like basis. In other words, in case of a motherboard, we would replace the defective motherboard with one of the same specifications.
all drivers and bios have been updated.
chassis is open but still holding the mobo. what is the reasoning here?
the power supply is rated at 750w what is a good way to test it, as i don't have another on hand?
do i have to reinstall the os? as it is currently the computer i am useing.
it seems that i have had this problem since the computer was built, everything was brand new.
at first i thought it was the video cards overheating, but since then i have teken the lower card out and it runs in a good temperature range.
i will try useing minimum ram is there a prefered slot?
