I hit restart because thats what I do when battlefield annoys me with it's glitches and bugs.
I've noticed this before, but was always too lazy to figure out whats going on.
After hitting restart, Windows does it's little shut down process and then the monitor goes dark, but the PC itself never actually restarts. Just hangs there, still running, still on. Pressing the reset button does nothing, but upon holding (every time) the power button, it POSTs, then shuts down. Pressing the power button for 1 or 2 seconds does nothing. Holding it causes it to show me the ASUS symbol and then it shuts down
I'm not sure if it POSTs completely, I dont hear any beeps, it's set just to show the logo. I could change it if need be.
Specs are as follows,
Asus M5A97 LE Revision 2
FX-6300 OC'd to 4.0 ghz
8 gigs of KVR at 1600 stock
128GB Silicon Power SSD with Windows 7 installed, 2 WD HDDs and a Seagate HDD
MSI R9 280 GAMING edition
EVGA SuperNOVA 750watt G2 PSU
Temps were normal, even during gaming. CPU was at 54, GPU was at 59 (usually a few degrees lower but its a hot day), MB Temp is 38C according to AI Suite and Afterburner.
Any help, advice, or speculation is much appreciated, and if I left any useful information out, please let me know and I'll correct it. Thanks all for your time
