weird PC power problem? Answered
I'm experiencing a weird problem with my PC.
recently (about 2 months ago) i have upgraded my video card to a Sapphire 7970 and about 2 weeks ago installed a second monitor to my system (dual D2342P , added one first, bought new desk, added second one).
in the past 2 weeks i have had no problems at all.
in the past 2 DAYS my PC has randomly shutdown abut 6 times (most recent 1hr before this was posted).
the first few were relatively close together, about 2 - 4 hr apart.
the most recent ones have been almost exactly 12 hrs apart. (~11 am - ~11pm) .
yesterday (Monday) i replaced all 7 case fans and cleaned the filters. (they needed doing. running for almost 6 years)
currently have disconnected second monitor connected by D-Sub and CPU temp has dropped by 12C (72C - 60C)
if needed i will post the AIDA summary.
Motherboard: ASUS Commando
CPU: Intel Q6600
Ram: 4x 2GB sticks (2x Micron, 2x Generic)
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate (genuine)
At time of posting CPU temp is 69C
