This one has been traced to a few areas. An overtaxed PSU (said PSU can be the big one or the mainboard), BAD CAPS (google that) or less often and one I haven't encountered some driver issue.
The message points to some motherboard issue IMO. I'd ask it's maker for a fix or just replace it with some other model.
So I've had this strange problem for more than a year now.
Every morning, when I first turn on my computer, there's about 70% chance it will crash at a seemingly random point during startup. It takes on average 3-4 attempts to get though to desktop.
Once the system has managed to boot and remained stable for more than ~3min, there's virtually 0% chance it will crash again that day, even if I restart the computer. It never crashes mid-session or under heavy load (e.g. gaming).
The next morning the cycle starts over again.
These are the most frequently encountered error messages:
Sometimes this message appears:
"Overclocking failed! Please enter Setup to re-configure your system"
Strange, as I cannot recall overclocking my system.
The problem has persisted through system wipes, GPU upgrade and harddrive upgrade.
All help is appreciated!
