ZionCriteria Posted November 6, 2010 Share Posted November 6, 2010 I've got a system that I built recently that I've slowly been putting some hours on and I seem to be running into a problem more and more frequently. It started very similar to this: http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=90822. Essentially, the computer boots, stalls, and then boots again. It has done this from the very first time I ever booted and continues to behave that way from time to time. The problem is that these spontaneous reboots are now making their way into my normal use of the machine, which is gaming/photography. With regards to frequency, a month ago it was only during boot. Two weeks ago, it started happening once a day. This weekend it is up to twice a day. I can't tell you whether it happens at idle or only under load because I only turn the machine on when I'm using it and then use it pretty hard. Anyhow, here's where I'm at now- - In the linked thread, The RAM Guy suggested a BIOS update to sometimes relieve the problem on X58 boards. I'm really nervous doing that because of the fact that the machine will sometimes randomly reboot during the boot cycle and I don't know if this is going to screw things up. - I don't have another PSU to test with (this is my only computer, I sold my old one to afford it), so beyond using a jumper and making sure it runs - what kind of testing can I do?
