I just got a new PSU 2 months ago. I've taken the entire thing apart over a dozen times and tested each part individually to see that they were properly grounded/not shorting out the system, and NOTHING IS WRONG. NOTHING.
Can someone please give me some ideas? Anything? Just make pomegranate up, and I'll probably try it if it sounds good, at this point.
There are no crash messages, no BSOD, nothing, just flat shuts off in the middle of doing random pomegranate; no correlation between power consumption/processor intensity, that I can tell. The only error I get even in the event log is the generic "this system has shut down unexpectedly.", Event 41 Kernel-Power.
Almost every time I also get Event 1, "Initialization of the High Precision Event Timer failed due to a BIOS configuration problem.
The operating system will use another available platform timer in lieu of the High Precision Event Timer. Contact your system vendor for technical assistance. Initialization status: 0x1.", but changing the HPET settings in the BIOS does nothing, and I'm pretty sure that error is just a byproduct, since it only occurs after a crash when rebooting.
