About half a year ago I bought a new PC. It worked fine for the first few months but since a while back I've had some problems. The problem is that if you're trying to start it up after it's been turned off for a few hours it would just keep crashing (bluescreen) until it's "warm" again. The first 5-10 tries the computer won't boot up at all, the computer is still running and every fan is spinning etc but it won't boot up. After 5-10 tries it'll start booting up and then it'll crash (bluescreen) or simply just reboot, sometimes before windows is loading, sometimes during and sometimes after you've used it a few minutes. Once you get it started it'll run flawlessly for days as long as you don't turn it off.
System is as following:
Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R (rev 2.0)
Intel Core i7 930
Corsair 6GB (3x2048mb) 1600MHz XMS3
Gigabyte Geforce 460 1GB OC - (2 of them in SLI)
Corsair Force 60GB SSD
1TB Samsung Spinpoint F3
Corsair HX 850W
Corsair Cooling Hydro H50 CPU-cooler
Fractal Design Define R2
(Everything is running with standard clocks)
Things I've tried:
Reformated it probably 10 times+
Memtest 86+ about 8 rounds without a single error
Tried each hard drive seperately
Tried each graphic card seperately
Updated firmware on SSD aswell as a secure erase with Parted Magic
All kinds of new/old drivers
Sent the mobo, CPU and memory back to the store for testing, they found some problems with the mobo and replaced it with a new one but that didn't solve anything.
(Probably forgot something here)
To me it looks like the PSU might be broken but if you have any other ideas/suggestions it would be greatly appreciated!
PS. Writing this from my laptop but if you want I could upload the .dmp files aswell, just say the word.
