I've bought a new desktop computer few days ago. It has the following hardware specification:
- Gigabyte GA-B85-HD3 motherboard
- Intel Core i-5 4460 Processor
- 8 GB DDR3 RAM
- 1 TB Hard disk
- Windows 10 Pro x64 Operating System
- Value Top 450W Power Supply
- ASUS VX229H Monitor
The machine is acting strangely from today. While my wife was using (nothing fancy, browsing internet) it, it suddenly got restarted. The computer was stayed in shut down state (nothing on the monitor) but the power indicator on the front panel of the casing kept blinking. It's blinking pattern is 3 seconds on, 5 seconds off.
After several trial and error, and checked and reconnected all possible plugs, I was able to start the machine and my wife was able to log into Windows. But after 5-10 minutes again the system got restarted and stayed in shut down state with blinking power indicator (3 seconds on, 5 seconds off).
What could possibly is the problem? Every component on it has warranty but before taking the machine to the vendor, I'd like to understand the problem and if possible, apply solutions.
