My computer started freezing while booting Windows 7 or linux. I recently discovered that I can boot only when a single core is enabled in the BIOS. I didn't add/remove hardware or update BIOS. No heating problems, no overclocking. Computer worked fine for almost a year with Windows 7. What do you think is broken?
Does this mean the CPU is broken? Is there any chance motherboard or other component is broken? How can I tell the source of the problem for sure?
- CPU: Intel i7-2600k
- Motherboard: asus P8P67-M rev 3.0
