Also, I'm fairly sure it's not a heating issue. I ain't sure with my fan but it seems ok.

I even stressed the computer by running Star Trek full blast with the external cooler off and took the temp up to 85C for nearly a hour with no problems. Even shuts down if its just idle in the background. It doesn't seem like it should be heat issues but that seems to be the common suggestion.I ran a full virus scan just the other day. If so, why now?

I will test it more from here. The install is pretty quick and could help you get back to the stars.7. How would I go about determining if solder joints are cracked?

While my computer does run warm on occasion, it's always done so, and I've played Gigantic maps all the way to endgame with the computer five times as warm as it's Check for Windows 7, 8, 10 Updates This one is pretty simple as well, thankfully!
