Bill, you posted at the same time I did. But what you just described sounds more like a PSU or a dead short to me. Also, Greg would be mad at me, but I never use the GPU drivers Windows provides. They are always quite old ones. I always download from AMD or Nvidia, whichever I have.

Thanks guys, posted in BSOD to see what they come up with 1st. I only used the driver windows found as it wouldn't require me wiping drivers, etc. just to use the 2nd GPU to test. That way it would be easier to go back to my original GPU, which I have now done. My SSD firmware is up to date.

I did restore to an image from the week before. I have a 550W BFG PSU I could use to test if necesary. I'd hate to undo my wiring management, I don't constantly play like you lot But if it's MB, it will mean a different new MB so a new CPU as well. I think I could use everything else, but would likely do some ram and maybe GPU if I'm going there. I'd really like to keep this PC as is. Ram or GPU would have been easiest, but also were easiest to test, and apparently not the issue.

I'm back in Safe mode, and so far so good. I was really interested if a windows fault, even if it wasn't a BSOD, could cause the BIOS reset. Was assuming it wouldn't , so must be hardware. I'll edit this post and link the BSOD thread. Safe mode is like a child's toy, and I'm off my game. A Guy

Have you checked the voltage on the CMOS battery?

Would the CMOS battery cause a hard freeze, followed sometimes by a restart? I thought it was just to hold the settings when the PC is powered off. A Guy

Going to remove CMOS, measure, and reset BIOS. Back soon (Hopefully, I'm no good with electronics )

The bios resetting would result from a bad battery, but I don`t think it would cause a freeze or a restart or a shutdown.

True, I don't think it will cause the freezes either. Another thought, is your displayed date correct?/

Date corrected after the 2 BIOS resets, yes. cMOS battery was at 3.24v. Reimaging with last Acronis backup and will do some surfing after I get back. Posting from my work *cough* iPad
