Hi, for a number of months now I've been having issues with My rig. Usually what happens is if it sits for a day or two, it's a devil to get started again. It'll start up, make it to the windows login screen, freeze up, then I'll manually restart it, then from there it'll either make it to the login screen and everything is fine, or I'll be plagued with problems for 5 or 6 restarts and it's fine. Sometimes I get a hardware failure screen, or it'll make it to the login screen, then the monitor will turn off and display "no signal", then My rig becomes unresponsive, or it'll make it to the windows logo screen, monitor turns off with "no signal", rig unresponsive, then upon restart, the "windows failed to start" screen will appear, or it'll start, but the screen will be black and the fans will blow at full, or sometimes My screen will get horizontal lines across it, then usually after restarting manually for 4-6 times, it'll work fine after that until it's next shut down.. Any idea whether My rig is dying on Me, or is it another problem? I'm pretty sure it's not malware related. I'm almost convinced it's My power supply. I've barely had it for 2 and a half years. Most of the hardware is factory default, but I only upgraded the PSU and the graphics card. If I put My hand on the back vent of the PSU after running My rig for a few hours, it'll get very warm, almost burning My hand. I'll list what I know.
Processor: AMD Phenom 9750 quad core processor 2.40 GHz
Installed Memory: 8.00 GB
System type: 64 bit operating system, Windows 7
PSU: Enermax pro 82+ 525 watt
graphics card: Powercolor Radeon HD 5750 1 gig GDDR5 Dual DVI HDMI displayport
