I am back again, unfortunately. I have worked with Dakeyras through all the malware removal steps and still have a fussy, randomly rebooting computer.
Here is a link to the previous topic:
The last steps I have taken with the computer is a wipe of the hard drive and a reinstall of Windows. During that reinstall, the computer rebooted itself and I had to make a second attempt to get the OS to install properly. This was a sign to me that I'm still dealing with a hardware problem. It also rebooted in the middle of the night as I was installing Windows updates.
I am really thinking that I might RMA the motherboard, as you can see from my posts in the previous topic. I just can't figure out what we haven't tested and my 30 days are up with Newegg on Monday.
I was able to switch out the graphics card with a different one to see if that was the problem, but no such luck.
Since we last spoke I have made a connection with someone who has a bunch of (old) spare components lying around. He supplied me with the graphics card and says he has some old power supplies hanging around if I want to test that too.
Let me know what you think, Phil!
