Can I ask what PSU you have ordered.

 

Regarding the notifications problem, best that you contact a Mod or Admin as they have senior forum permissions whereas I do not.

Finally took over a month to get my inlaw to install the new CPU and later found one drive not showing up.  Called and he said to check for any unconnected cables.  Found one and connected and drive came back with new letter.  Changed back. Haven't used computer enough yet to determine if trouble free.

I had noticed in my music program that I was still having some songs that should only taking a second to open taking about 30".

But today definitely things are not back to normal.  I had finished my 3rd weeding of Rough-legged Hawk (RLH) images, and was ready to proceed to the next step of renumbering according to my system, before reorganizing, making tiffs, etc.

Meanwhile, I had since also gotten good new shots of Long-eared, and Saw-whet Owls, also ready for renumbering.  I did a mass renaming of older Rough-legs to conform to the new system I use now, and when I went back to Photoshop Bridge, the renaming didn't show, and I had spinning circle.   I went to the other open Bridge Window to renumber the owls, likewise, but the Window wouldn't come up.  Neither Bridge window would, so after way too long of this, I went to task manager to end the open window.  But it kept reappearing, so I finally closed Bridge.  Then I reopened the new digital folders and finished renumbering the owls.  I went to the RLH window and the computer spontaneously rebooted.

After getting back to the RLH window and trying to finish the renaming, I got a spinning circle and building criteria.  This normally takes a couple of seconds and it has been going on for 25 minutes, basically stuck again.

So new power supply hasn't solved these problems. What could be wrong?

 

Then I took the drive off and did the renaming on my laptop and it was done in 2 seconds.  Put back on the Nimbus, and all the renamed ones show 0 bytes in Photoshop Bridge, but megabytes in Windows Explorer.

After getting an offer to scan and fix errors on the drive, I let it, and reopened Bridge and the renamed images had reverted to the former name.  I then was able to rename them as desired finally, quickly.

Well I never stopped having problems and every time I tried to export (compile from clips) a 6 minute video in Premiere Pro, the computer would reboot before the end.  I was going on a long trip and took the PC to my nephew-in-law to assess and do whatever seemed needed to bring it up to speed.  He determined that I needed a newer video card and ordered a good one for abut $200.  I came back from my trip recently and tried to export the video and it reboots closer to the beginning than before.  

I connected the HD to my 1 core ASUS laptop and finally was able to export it.

So the processor had new paste applied. He said that it wasn't even well seated before.  A more powerful power supply added, and better, newer video card, and still can't finish a video project of more than a minute or 2.  I used to be able to do over 15 minutes without a problem.  The performance meter shows 100% while exporting, while memory is only about 1/3 of capacity.

What can be tested now?
