Switch to Mainboard tab and look for BIOS - version
Then go to mainboard support site GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1150 - GA-Z87-HD3 (rev. 1.x)
F8 is latest according to site.

While you are at that site, check if drivers are up to date.

Im working on making sure all my stuff is updated right now. But I won't have access to my Computer to test it because I'm going away for a day and a half. Once I get back I will test to see if this solved the problem and I'll post again when I find out.

Pass twice through the same situation. The problem was power supply.

Or, I am not an expert, but using the drivers that come by default could perhaps help.

All my drivers are up to date along with my BIOS and nothing has changed.

At this point I would begin to suspect the power supply.

Yes, I think its about time as well. I just hoped that it was not a power supply issue because those can get expensive. I started looking into it last night. If anyone has any suggestions for a replacement I would love to see them

I've got a Corsair TX-750 that performs really well. It wasn't that expensive either. Only about $135 CDN.

Remember, you don't want to skimp on your PSU. It's the heart of your rig. Everything else depends on it.

A good power supply from the likes of Corsair, EVGA, or Seasonic would be your best choice.
