OK, last week my computer failed to boot, the HD LED came on, the Power LED didn't and all the fans started spinning. Holding the power button turned it off.
I checked for loose connections but found nothing so I reset the CMOS.
This time it booted with the message CMOS checksum error, loaded from defaults (or similar), I hit F1 as instructed and it continued to load windows.
All was well for a time, with the computer quite happy to boot as normal but today the same thing happened.
Specs are as follows:
Mobo: ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ (not overclocked)
RAM: 2*2GB OCZ 667MHz DDR2
GPU: 8800GT 512MB
PSU: 600W FSP Group
Running Vista Home Premium, though that should make no difference.
This was a custom build by a company called PCSpecialist 2 years ago but the RAM, CPU and GPU I have put in since as upgrades.
Does anyone know what might cause this? I don't want to have to reset my CMOS on a weekly basis and I am worried that it is a symptom of something worse to come.
I have probably missed something in this question let me know if there is information you need.
