shut down
I'm running Windows 7 32 bit home premium on an Intel i3 clarkdale processor and have an ATI 5670 gpu. My computer has been randomly shutting down and won't restart. After an undocumented period of time, after unplugging the pc, I can restart the computer. When it is rebooted, the time is way off and seems to coincide with the crash time. I have replaced the PSU. I reflashed the BIOS. I have replaced the CMOS battery. Arrrgh! Still happening. The core and gpu temperature are not elevated.

Any thoughts?

All of my drivers are up to date. I made no recent software modifications.
