I hope this isn't related to a CPU/motherboard error.
Well maybe this is happening because of the disassembly H it is the only reason I can think apart from as you say a mobo / CPU problem.

But the fact that it is giving this error doesn't affect the boot is good.

In the BIOS the CPU is listed I suppose an obvious statement but if it is then the CPU message should only be displayed once. All the power leads nice and snug?
Personally I think the CPU is fine and it is the mobo that may be having problems. Now that might show up when you run the RAM tests any problems there would certainly point the finger away from the CPU.

Don't suppose you have an old machine you could try the RAM in?

Look I am sorry this is dragging out a bit and it has to be something hardware based. Your BIOS is it the UEFI or not?

it might be a motherboard error

usually if a system works when restarted a lot

it is not a cpu error

my best guest is motherboard

or graphics cards

I don't have any other RAM except what's in the system now. If I remember correctly, I had this problem before I took the computer apart (to transfer it to a new case). I think that was solved by changing sleep to S3 in the BIOS. Don't remember if I had this CPU error or not.
I don't think I have UEFI.
Would a bent pin on the CPU socket cause this? When the MB was new, one of the pins looked a little off, I did not touch it.

from my experience a bent cpu pin would result in the processor not fitting in the socket.
i think it is motherboard

This motherboard has the pins as part of the socket. The CPU doesn't have pins.

Yes H tb is right it would not fit in the socket or at very least short out against the others.

So you have the old type BIOS then as the UEFI is quite different because the "front" panel / GUI looks like in the pic.

Now as tb has said it looks increasingly like a mobo issue can you have a scout around for any signs of scorching bulging caps anything that could be loose etc

No mate you have the previous version of the BIOS

Doesn't make any difference where the pins are H - same problem probably a bit easier to force the CPU in that way than pins on the CPU.

You will need a really good magnifying glass to see them one way way of checking is to get a credit card or similar piece of very straight sided plastic and gently try the alignment of the pins with the straight edge. They should all touch in unison in both axes (plural of axis) :)

Hum tb just where are these pins located mate as I was under the impression that it was a 1366 pin LGA socket.?

But I stand to be corrected as I have never actually seen a 1366 CPU

You can see how tiny the pins are on the MB. (MB might not be the actual one I use)
