I have been this PC for a year and half now without any notable problems.
These days a weird problem has started up:
Upon powering on the system, the PROCHOT LED light blinks (NO BEEPS), the processor fan rotates for a half second, and it stops. Only to restart a second later. This restart repeats about 10-15 times leading to the BIOS message of failed boot. Everything seems normal on the BIOS page. I saved the setting and restarted. The system starts again going a little further ahead and there it restarts again while windows loading. It takes about 10 minutes for the system to stabilize and run normally. Its weird because it does start up with functional Windows, but only after restarting n numbers of times.
I checked the temperature manually.. its cold..! Plus the system has been running normally afterwards.. so it does suggests that fault couldn't be in the heat sink, or else it would hsve tripped with a beep.
Yesterday onward, the system has been started restarting while the computer is being used, this didn't happen before.
+ i7 4770
+ nVidia Quadro K600 [Dell 24" Display]
+ Adata DDR3 1600 (4Gb x 2)
+ Cooler Master Thunder 500 W
Any suggestions/Troubleshooting advice would be appreciated.. Help..!
Plus where is the Bios Log file saved so that the events can be read?
Please ask for any additional information required.
These symptoms tell me that you have a component somewhere in the system that has partially failed and does not work properly until it has been heated up substantially. Eventually, it will fail altogether. In order of priority (only educated guesswork on my part, I have to admit), I would look at these components:
Hope this help,
Thank you for joining the Intel communities.
I suggest trying N.Scott.Pearson recommendations so that way you can find which component is the culprit in your system.
