Troubleshooting

Hello,

I've had my x51 for over 2 years now and never experienced any issues with it. However recently it has developed a trend for freezing and switching itself off. It does this around once per day.

I will be mid task and then the whole pc will freeze and turn off. It will attempt to switch itself back on, kicking in the fans, before switching off again. It will then do this process again and start up.

Once restarted, only one of my monitors works and the PC works with a lot less 'power', failing to run games smoothly on anything other than the lowest settings, when normally it copes well with Ultra settings.

Wondering if anyone else has had similar issues or knows what could be causing this?

Thanks

Replied and it didn't go through? Weird!

Anyway, I did a fresh install around 6 months ago, with no problems in between. I have toyed with doing it again these past few weeks but wanted to avoid it. Maybe I will this weekend.

And yeah, it's 330w.
