I have a much larger issue with my system that I still haven't solved. It will reboot every time it goes into a power-saving mode, even if that power-saving mode is just shutting off the monitors.

This may be too obvious, but have you tried just changing your power options so that nothing ever shuts down?

In any case, if I had to guess, it's either a wonky Windows install, a bad PSU, or a bad mobo. Helpful, huh?


Reinstalled Windows once already. Although I had to format the HDD to do so. Remember the issues I had with installing things? That included a new Windows install - it froze at the same spot three times. Which got me back to thinking HDD.

Yeah, thought about the PSU but it wouldn't necessarily explain the install issue, and would maybe be something that appeared when I was gaming and put the system under a heavy load.

Mobo seems kind of likely, but it's hard to tell and this isn't annoying enough for me to swap the mobo. Doing that sounds miserable.

It's so weird in that I've never before found an issue I couldn't fix, let alone even diagnose. Every symptom seems to point to a different component, which does lead back to mobo but nothing specifically screams "mobo."

Whatever. I built this thing from $800 of parts heavily on sale at Microcenter a year ago. I'll let it ride another year and build a new one. The crashing wouldn't bug me much if I didn't seem to lose my cookies every time, forcing me to relog in to every site. Like here. Everything will be newest-first upside down when I return after a crash.
