Please be more specific about the cold boot problems, like what error messages you are getting or what those problems are.

This forum seems to attract a lot of problems with hardly any information given. We can't help with such little information to work with.

Unlikely to be motherboard. Possibly memory or hard drive but most likely software related. Give full system specs and more information on what is happening.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Agreed. Why would you suspect the motherboard out of all the possibilities?

Thanks for all the replies. Indeed the information is not ok to can make a diagnosis. I am sorry. Because of the time I don't have. I bought a SSD Adata501 and let the computer in on all time to see what happen if the computer suddenly stops again. Maybe it is not the MOBO what I thought. You are all right: I should not think the reason for suddenly stop working is the MOBO. I wait now and after a week if the problems are gone I shall give detailed infofo. Otherwise if the problems . also with the cold boot are gone, it might have been the old HDD. Thanks a lot you all.

The reason I suspect the MOBO was the info I found here and there around the net. The MOBO is from Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3. Last evening I updated the BIOS, from F5 version to F14 now.
CPU Intel Core 2 CPU 6320 @ 1,86 Ghz. Socket 775 LGA.
The HD is now an SSD Adata511 60GB. (The HDD was an old Maxtor 40GB)
2GB RAM
Videocard: GeForce 8600GT ( never give any probs as far as I know)
Disabled Printer port and LAN on board and Com 1 and 2 ( to save 'power')


Until now no problems but the problems random appears after hours or even days of working. Power 350 Watt. Windows 7 Ultimate English with all updates

What are the best

We are still missing some detailed explanations.
The BIOS update, while always risky, was probably a good thing since you are now running an SSD and that should ensure the best compatibility.

It is important to know how you switched from the 'old Maxtor' to the new SSD drive. If you did a clean install then we can rule out any continuing problems as being software related. If you cloned the old drive to the new one then you may have brought some of the problems with you when you made the switch over.

More details please on this and exactly what the problem(s) were and which ones of them are continuing now.

Sorry for replying after 2 days. I am quite busy.

Some more information. After updating Bios and after using an SSD and not any longer the old HD and a clean install of Windows7 no problems.

The problems were so far: suddenly complete stop working from the computer: No fan activity, no LEDs, no USB mouse or keyboard, no 'nothing', like no 220V. This at random intervals.

Until now I can not speak about the other problem of the 'cold boot' problems. Then the computer seems to start the CPU fan but it looks like it can not 'start' the fan at all. Then followed immediately by another effort to start the fan but without result. And so on and on. But still no starting computer. And then suddenly..it boots after 4 or 5 or 6 efforts.

I will investigate that problem after I have no problems with the 'stop working suddenly problem' ( now for 3 days)

Thanks for all suggestions! I hope to give info enough now!
