Basically, this is the problem.
Since the past few months, my computer has beeped 50+ times on startup, every time without fail.
The first few times it happened I was freaked out, and I looked around for any problems. However, since there were no error messages, no crashes, no lags, no graphic issues, I just ignored it. I had school papers to write and such so I couldn't afford to leave my computer off while I figured out the solution to a non-existent problem.
However, a few days ago, while playing a game, my computer started beeping like it did on startup and after 10 or so beeps it shut down. I started the computer back up again and it out-right shutdown after sitting idle on the desktop.
Now, this is where I'm a little confused. I cleaned the inside of my computer out of dust extensively, and its now to the point where I can surf the internet indefinitely and run games on the lowest settings without a crash.
This leads me to believe its either the PSU or the video card. I'm thinking its the PSU, since if the video card was dead it wouldn't let me run any settings at all, correct? Another odd thing I noticed was in the HWMonitor, there were some (What appeared to me) as funky readings.
The -12 volt railing is reading at -6, and the Tempin2 is reading at 128 c while tempin0 and 1 are running around 30-40. This is seriously concerning, that is HOT regardless of what that line is measuring, and I need to fix this pronto. I have no other computer to work from to finish all the papers and projects for my finals, but I'm afraid I'll do permanent damage to my hardware if I let this go any longer. Please get back to me fast, I'd really appreciate it.
