Every other time I turn on the comp, I get a BSD. Perhaps my mobo is broken?

Well, after my audigy 2 zs just fried, killing a PCI port, my main computer has been all hell.

In summary, once I get it to turn on, all is well, and it will boot fast and normally afterwords. Should I turn it off and leave for more than 12 hours (sleep/work/etc) I get a blue screen of death, usually the 0x0000000F4 error. I must wait (rebooting still forces me to wait as I jsut get a black screen where windows is supposed to boot). About twenty minutes after I reboot beyond that point, the computer boots and works perfectly, with or without any overclocks.

I tried some hardcore rendering (HD 1080 with landscape and raytracing) and everything works like a charm, but should I leave for an extended period of time with the computer off...

Sounds liek a power issue. I saw your Other thread and if i was to be honest it looked like an Overvolt because of the PSU. I would really test that Rig with another PSU if possible...However also attempt a CMOS reset...If all Fails make sure you have the latest chipset drivers.

yeah def a power surge somewhere. if you can...pop in a different PSU for a day or two and see how it works for you

Edit IV: No problem is back. (See post made today below)

A quick question to those who know it, is 3.54V on the 3.5V line bad? It is now 3.4V. Is this related to the DVD drive (motor) by any chance because yesterday I had BSD crashes as the DVD drive loaded a disk (all seems well now).

Updateroblem is still there. Computer still takes 20 minutes to load on first time. Perhaps there is also a driver problem? Perhaps its my hard drive? I have had this happen once a long time ago. Kinda went away on its own after a day or two. Do not know why.


Anyway, I'll pop into the PSU section for a bit and go find a backup PSU.
