    I've starting getting this problem within the hour:

    I was playing C&C 3 single player and my computer automatically turned off...oc'ed to 2.66 at the time.

    So I jumped the jumper and reset comos. Now when I turn my computer off it won't come back on unless I press the power switch multiple of times.

    ...I finally got it up and running (sometimes it shuts down) by giving it more volts on the vcore from normal to 1.4000v. I looked at cpuz when I started my comp, cpuz is showing that my processor is running at 1600.2 MHz with a x6.0 multiplier, and sometimes it jumps up to the norm 2.4 GHz with a x9.0 multiplier. It shows my bus speed at 266.7 and fsb 1066.7. says it's getting 1.050 volts (weird, that's why im thinking cpuz isn't working right).


    Also, when I restart, it won't restart just shuts off when it's spossed to be restarting and won't start back up (unless I proceed to press the power switch many times). please help!

    Turned off power hogs in advanced options and now it's fine in cpuz...weird. Still why isn't it working properly on optimal settings?

    EDIT: Says my vcore is 1.360 volts in cpuz at 2.4 ghz, i'm giving it 1.400v in bios.
