fairly new (been having probs since day 1)
ill go down the list and if you can tell me how to fix all of this i love you long time!
1) will randomly shut off when i press power button and restart on its own.
2)sometimes windows loading screen will freeze over and over until a restore (which helps for a week or so)
3) unless i downclock my GPU lower than stock, my games immediately crash. (im assuming voltage problems are responsible and sent 3 emails to PNY requesting a new one with no response)
4) brand new problem started last night, i downloaded the starcraft 2 patch 1.3.3 and after it doesnt work at all... i open it and it goes to a black screen and does nothing. if i press spacebar, esc, or click it closes and says it crashed. ive tried the repair tool, uninstalling AND deleting anything REMOTELY starcraft related from my computer and reinstalling and NOTHING still... and ive looked online and no one seems to have any issues with the new patch but me.
5)windows updates "fail" everytime ive tried to install today i get error code: 800B0100
and as we all know, "Windows Help and Support" is worthless.
and dont bother listing simple troubleshooting, ive done it all... ive reinstalled windows and formatted all my drives (which worked for 3 weeks but just all went to crap last night) all my restore points i made are gone? so thats out. my cpu is stable at 4.7 ghz on prime for 7 hours, trust me this is beyond all that lol
thanks for your time
Well I'd definitely say the first thing you should try is RMA'ing the motherboard. That would be the most obvious solution as there seems to be problems evident in more than one area of your computer. Since obviously the motherboard connects the whole computer together, it would make sense that a bad motherboard would cause problems in more than just one part.
If a new motherboard doesn't work, then I would suggest testing a different power supply or RMA'ing your current power supply. You seem to have enough power for the setup, but bad units happen. A power supply, just like the motherboard, can cause problems in many different parts of a computer.
One of those two should definitely fix the problem, other hardware issues don't seem to fit very well in the issues you are describing. Otherwise, I have to say I'm stumped.
