i play games online and it takes a fair bit of memory to run them, i uassally dont bother turning my computer off because its too much of a hassle. Often when im playing a game my computer will just freeze and ill have to turn it off, almost like its over heated.
Everytime my computer turns off i have to push my power supply button to turn off the power, wait for my motherboard green led light to fade out, then i turn it back on again, my fans and MOBO turn back on but it doesnt boot up. its completely random when it boots up, i just have to keep pushing the power button and wait till finally the led light comes on and i can hear my dvd drive load.
I dont have a clue why it would be doing this but i have idea's, i baught a new case and power supply about 8 months back and ive had this problem since then. everything is correctly plugged in, ive tested and looked at my MOBO manuel 100 times over. i thought it could be a faulty power supply or maybe a fault in my MOBO since its about 5 years old.
please somone help, this is driving me insane, ive had the problem for 8months and growing tired of it, if anyone out there has had the same problem and knows hot to fix it or knows what the problem may be, post or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
thank you very much
