Do you think this is a BIOS issue? Because leaving my PC on 24/7 isn't really an option.
How can Windows be so stable, yet the bios/boot so damn flaky
I'm getting the same code 59 on cold boots, occasionally something different, like the 63. 59 = "CPU microcode not found or microcode update is failed"
I think the bug comes up before the ram is powered on (no lights on my smart tracers).
codes 63-67 indicate "CPU DXE initialization started".
Mine usually fires up again after powering off-on a few times, entering bios, then restarting.
I was digging through the manual forever to find that clear cmos button (hidden between the audio ports and the first usb/lan ports for anyone else who's looking). Anything special to doing the clear cmos via the button ? power on/power off ? I've only used jumpers before.
