TomasRiker Posted December 8, 2006 Posted December 8, 2006 Hi, now it happened twice already. I've been playing Armed Assault for some while, and after maybe two hours, my computer turns off. When I try to turn it back on, I see all four red diagnostic LEDs on the mainboard, which, according to the manual means, that the CPU is being detected. Nothing happens. Turning off the PSU doesn't help either. I thought it was some kind of temperature issue, so I left the computer for a couple of hours to let whatever was overheated cool down. But still it doesn't help. When it happened the first time, I was afraid the CPU was damaged, so I began removing the CPU cooler. But then, after removing it, I wanted to give it a last chance, so I reattached it - and, magically, everything was fine again. I did some stress tests with Prime95 and found out that the mainboard itself gets quite warm, around 60 °C. The CPU temperature didn't rise above 50 °C. I installed an additional case fan. Yesterday it happened again. And again, the solution was to remove the CPU cooler and attach it again. How can that be? Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
