Good morning to all:
Wonder if you can help me, I read various threats, still confused and runing out of ideas, and patience, and $$$.
Here is the problem:
A couple weeks ago my pc shut itself off, the only way to restart it was to reset (reset power supply) wouldn't repost. It would start but no video card or the motherboard's vid.
Replaced PSU, pc restarts, posts, have to reset bios runs for about 10 min. than shuts ifself off, and go through same steps as above except it posts (video), reset bios, restarts and shuts off within sec. same happens, until I wait awhile (10-15 min) runs for about 15 min and same all over again. Even if nothing other than ram and cpu is plugged in still shuts off.
To me it seems like a heat prob. but cpu is running at 40C shut off temp is 85C.
Everything unplugged just running ram and cpu and motherboard's vid does same.
What I did:
Replaced PSU, replaced Motherboard, waiting for a cpu (will come with a fan and heatsink)
Tried another case same happens
Tried new motherboard, w/ new psu w/ different chip and different ram same happens
The only thing I haven't tried is with another cpu fan!!! (Waiting to receive it with new cpu)
Also I should add tried hhd on another pc no prob, tried ram no prob couldn't try cpu w/fan cause other pc won't accept pentium d.
Need to state that I took the pc to work (different location) still does the same.
Going out of my mind with this never had something similar happen.
Thanks for reading
