So.. I was told to get a 750 watt power supply to handle all my hardware. So I got a 900 watt power supply to make sure it would work and even handle any upgrades I get in the future. I installed a fresh hard drive, and had a professional install the power supply and it worked ok for the first day, and then the same crash happened on the 2nd day. I turned it back on and It had the same power-crash 1/2 hr later. What could it be? Someone suggested that some hardware may have been corrupted due to all the crashes, such as the motherboard, but I have no idea how to go about figuring out what's going on.
I'm on windows 7
ASUS p5p43TD motherboard.
Nvidia geforce GTS 250 video card
Intel quad core processor
Rocketfish gaming 900W power supply.
With 4G ddr3 ram (not sure the make)
a 160G hard drive partitioned into 50G/100G with windows on the 50G partition
Notes: The keys on my keyboard are light up, and they do not loose this light when the computer loses power, despite their only source of power being USB connection to the computer. (thus, not a lack of power from my home's circuitry?)
There's literally nothing on the hard drive other than windows, Mozilla, and flash. And I've only visited facebook and youtube with it before it crashed, so I really doubt it's anything to do with malware.
A friend also said (although I have no idea what it means): "an unset multiplier may have added up over time"
Other than that I'm completely stumped. IF you need more information from me about my computer or logs or anything, please include steps on how/where I would find that information as I doubt I would know.
Thank you so much!!!
