So why haven't you done anything about it since you last mentioned that in October?
The computer is usable, and this only occurs every 10 or so days, and I can just reboot it and it's back to normal for awhile.
Eh sounds like not worth worrying about then.
I still want to know why it just loses power like someone pulled the plug all the sudden.
How long did you run the test? It needs at least four hours to be sure. Let it run so we can completely rule out the RAM.
EDIT: but yeah sounds like a bad PSU to me, try another one to be sure.
As Ive said, check your drivers and bios.
Nah, you just said it's functional and works fine.
Unless you mean it doesn't work fine?
I finally managed to record a video of what happens so you guys can SEE what the PC does! Maybe we can finally figure this out!
How about you build a new computer already?
Did you check your suspend mode? It's probably in S1 sleep or something.
From August 25, 2014... thats one hell of a bump!!!!!
1. Not enough money, so I'm trying to make do with this one
2. All sleep modes are disabled.
I imagine you must have saved quite a bit by now, you've been saving for new stuff since last winter? right?>
Well the saving now is toward a first car for myself. The PC is a second priority now but I want to finally figure out wtf is going on with it so it doesn't explode or something and I really am screwed.
Its admirable that you are dedicating savings to a vehicle, I think that is a smart decision and will benefit you in so many ways, moreso than a PC could.
As far as your rig goes, I think you know what people are gonna say, you've been having issues for minimum 2 years now.. it kinda is what it as at this point. You need some new gear..plain and simple. I don't think any amount of analyzing is going to change this fact.
I know you have a thirst for knowledge, and thats awesome, but there comes a time where you need to say - hey this just aint worth the sweat!
Sounds like some kind of short or other motherboard issue. How about disconnecting your internal card reader and maybe the USB hub? I've seen at work sometimes older PCs that are on the way out won't display or anything with certain USB ports populated or even when a network cable is plugged in.
You've replaced pretty much everything now apart from the board and CPU, so difficult to really suggest anything other than you have some kind of board defect. How often does this happen now?
I've tried all the above to no avail. This happens about once or twice per week
Did you ever try updating your BIOS and chipset drivers?
No. I know I should but I am honestly scared to because I have a fear of something freezing up and then the motherboard is dead...
Not really that far off, as is.....
