today my trusted PC stopped working. First it would just restart randomly, work for a while only to restart randomly again, like if one had pressed the rest button.
I was able to check if GPU and CPU were fine temperature wise (GPU ~51°C, CPU ~49°C). I also opened the case to check for fan spin.
During a few of the restarts the CPU fan that is connected to the motherboard CPU fan outlet wasn't spinning anymore. The case fans were spinning normally. I cannot recall the exact order as there were too many restarts.
Eventually it stopped restarting and just didnt't react at all anymore. Instead the white CPU LED on the motherboard turned on and remained solid.
The last change to this system (RAM) was made in early Februar 21 and the CPU/motherboard combination has worked normally since November 20.
Thanks for your help and ideas as to what could be wrong.
First thing to do is to check if the 8-pin EPS connector is properly plugged in. If it is fine try do a BIOS flashback with the latest version of the BIOS. If it is already with the latest version, try and downgrade to one version prior. In case your computer is still not starting I would reset the processor. If all this fails, could very well be a dead motherboard.
