Good luck getting it sorted out.

Don't tell me Bacculum is going to miss a race. Think of that stats spreadsheet and get in an IT engineer!  ;D

Good luck hunting the gremlin. It's not easy, I know. Maybe an entire Windows reinstall might be in order.

that is bad luck and bl**dy inconvenient.
There is always step one: (with the power off), loosen everything and refit, firmly, in place.

often memory contacts get a little crappy/loose, the heat up and expand so often.

and of course, as mentioned above ^^ reinstall Windoze.
Hope you fix it soon.

It is almost certainly not this but once or twice I have had to set max CPU frequency in power options to 99%
Go figure but with out the change, CPU usage would stay at 100% with the fans blasting and yet the PC was idling.  Change the setting and in realtime you could see The CPU throttle down to sensible levels and hear the fans spin down.

I'd be looking at my temps, and if they're high, the cooling, and the bios.
and the HDD. if it's not solid state , I'd defrag and dskchk it.
I'd also try swapping the sata cables around before looking at a window reinstall

That sounds simple. ::)
But every hurdle possible was thrown at us, it's still not 100% but AC seems to be running smooth.
That's all I care about right now. :-X
