Hi - thanks in advance for any help
Recently my desktop PC fell off the table. It didnt fall all the way to the floor and seemed to be fine. However, it powered itself off after a short time automatically.
It turned out that the heatsink had become detached from the CPU during the fall and presumably caused the CPU to overheat. I put the heatsink back into place and for a couple of weeks the computer was all fine.
A couple of weeks later, I was using the computer and it powered itself off again. When I tried to switch it back on, it started up for around 1 second before switching off and allowing it to cool down made no difference.
CPU: Intel core i5 4690k
Motherboard: MSI Z97 PC Mate
RAM: Hyper X Fury 8GB DDR3 1866MHZ
PSU: EVGA 500W WHITE 80+
Windows 10 64 Pro
Any ideas of whats going on? If you need more info, please let me know
