New Motherboard problems

  TheProto 02:14 30 Dec 2007

Hi, I just installed a New Motherboard,
It's the INTEL DQ35JOE,
My processor is a Intel Core2Quad q6600
My GC a Foxconn 8800 GTX
I have 4x1GB ddr2 apacer
And a 500 gb Western Digit. s-ata 3.5 Hard disc
I run on Vista

The computer turns on normally and works perfectly, only after a while it shuts down on its own, no alert message or any kind of noise.
I doubt that the problem is tempretature because i have a Asus Silent Square pro to cool my CPU and a proper air flow in the box.

I really don't know what it could be and I need help !

Is the motherboard the same as the one you replaced,if not,have you installed the motherboard drivers.
If a different board you may need to do a system repair through your xp/vista install disc.
If that doesn't work, a clean reinstall of your operating system.

Have you checked the temps?

Is the heat sink and fan fitted correctly?

Turn off auto reboot

Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.

Click the Advanced tab

Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings

Clear the Automatically restart check box

Restart your computer for the settings to take effect.

The symptoms you describe are highly typical of overheating - it is immaterial which cooling systems you have if they are not fitted correctly and efficiently.

Make sure your heatsink is properly attached to the CPU - that means tightly fitted with a very small amount of heatsink compound. It is wrong to use large quantities.

Ensure all fans are running and running in the right direction.

There is mostly likely to be a temperature monitoring program supplied with your motherboard. Use it to keep a check on the heat generated when the machine is at rest and when it is working hard.

It looked fairly obvious that it was a ram problem from your opening post.

Hope the machine runs well from now on.
