Ok, I'm extremely pissed off. I was just trying to play my daily share of World of Warcraft (ok, so I'm an addict), and my computer starts getting *** on me. Blue screens, specifically, and often times WoW would have a critical error and would exit. This has been going on for quite a while, but the problem really isn't that bad nor frequent, so I've put up with it thus far.
However, I'm about so mad I could spit nails right now. My computer has given me a blue screen no less than 10 times in the past hour (probably more), trying to get it to work. See, up until this point, the problem wasn't that frequent. I would get a random restart or error every so often... restart my computer, no big deal. It's weird though, the errors seem to happen all at one time. I can go a week with no problems, and then have several restarts all in one day, and then be fine again for another couple of days.
Now, though, it's not even working at all. After trying for around an hour and a half, changing settings in the BIOS, swapping RAM slots, removing a stick at a time... which all yielded no results. The problem isn't with my settings, I've gathered that much. I throttled the CPU all the way down to 235 x 9, tried every vdimm voltage from 2.6 to 2.9, and even increased vcore all the way to 1.52v at 235 x 9. However, none improved the situation.
A friend of mine was helping me find possible solutions way back when (when it wasn't nearly as big of a problem), and he suggested that maybe my power supply was overheating. However, once I got my computer down laying flat on the floor, I could see that the fans were working. CPU cooling really isn't an issue either, I have a SP-90 with a 92mm Tornado running full speed 24/7, and some Arctic Silver 5 in applied in between. The temps are fine, I guess it's just a hardware issue.
The thing that gets me is, I've had this hardware configuration for well over 5 months, and it really hasn't given me a problem (a big problem at least) until today. Now, when I try to boot it.... I hit power on, it comes alive... only, nothing comes on the screen and it just lets out several long, drawn out beeps. That can't be good.
I suppose I could try resetting the CMOS jumper, I forgot to try that. Anyone have an ideas to what the problem might be?
