Checked my BIOS. CPU
is running at 11C
and my System
is running at 30C
so they're both running very cool. Spent some more quality time on my GPU
and it's running at 40C idle
and during gameplay
moving up to about 56C max
so it's running beautifully.
But I have worse news
The problem continued
. My game froze and I received this 'screeching
' sound, piercing. My entire system had failed. No power down, just froze and screamed at me. I restarted and 2-3mins later after booting back up it did the same thing again without running any game.
I run an error check for the disk and it freezes at stage 3.
I rerun the scan and went to sleep. Now I'm awake and writing this before anything else happens.
I'm not receiving the BSOD
and there are no error messages
but heres the weird thing.#1
My NVIDIA drivers are gone#2
Windows is asking me strange questions like warning me before running exes (as if though my settings have been reset)
I'm going to try a few things out right now including no games or music for an hour just Stress Prime
. Then I'll try 3D Mark
. Then I'll try playing music.. I noticed everytime my system froze there was music playing but it also crashed during the disk check so I honestly have no idea.
As I said though there are no error messages, no BSOD, the system does *not* power down
and it does *not* restart
. When booting back up I get the normal Window options of booting from the last known good configuration and something about disable automatic restart on system failure.
Last few things.. I literally heard one of my drives 'slow down'
which is the same gut wrenching horrible sound I heard 2 years ago when I had to build a new machine. A few moments after the 'slow down' the machine will freeze completely. And secondly the last time I heard that 'screeching' sound was when the RAM in my other computer had went bad.
