HP 240 G3 turns off with bios reset required every time

HP 240 G3
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

G'day All,


I have a HP 240 G3 that randomly turns off. Sometimes it will run for hours without any issues and other times it will turn off seconds after it starts. Putting the CPU under load with say a YouTube video or any video rendering always results with it turning off almost immediately. The other issue is the bios resets to default every time it stops and subsequently it wont start correctly until the bios has been reconfigured. Speaking of bios I have flashed it twice with the latest version and I have also done a format and reload of Win 7 64. In addition to that I have tested the hard drive and ram with no reported errors. Does anyone have any ideas on what to try next?


Cheers Brad
