Kyle, it's recommended that you test the voltages with a multimeter. Software monitoring isn't exactly accurate. It's very easy to test the voltages with a multimeter. Here is a helpful guide that explains this process: http://www.clunk.org.uk/forums/guide...ing-guide.html.

Have you physically looked over your board to make sure none of the caps are bulged/leaking?

Good luck

Damn those resistors... I've had a similar problem and over time the crashes became more frequent and soon it wouldn't turn on. Might have a resistor leaking... Any bad smells?

sounds like psu power fail or something shorting out to me...although shorting would be more persistant. I would say start with power supply and work your way around the board checking individual hardware one at a time.

Instead of running 2gigs or ram try just one and run memtest on it. Then one more run memtest on that one etc. You might be able to find a bad stick. When I had bad memory i would get complete shutdowns as well.

Blank, here's the result of a power surge on a HP proprietary micro atx board:



Easy fix though...just replaced the caps
