So I gopt this computer that has some weird issues.

-Time almost never stays sync'd. Randomly will go to a totally wrong time and other times it gives an "timeout period expired" error when manually syncing the time, but if you click "Update Now" a few times, it suddenly updates just fine after a few tries.

-Doesn't stay in sleep mode. I put it into sleep mode and just randomly it wakes itself back up.

-Sometimes doesn't start up. Just seems to do nothing. No bios, no boot screen or anything.

-Recently also just completely freezes for some reason sometimes when I pause Netflix. End up having to restart it.

Not quite sure what the problem is right now.

Test RAM, test hard drive, check all your settings. In the BIOS there are settings for low power states (suspend), make sure they are set accordingly.
If you have a CMOS battery, replace it. Otherwise make sure your time sync server is working, perhaps just try another one and see if it keeps.

Will test those. BIOS has been untouched and is all defaults. CMOS battery was replaced already and I have tried other time sync servers. Same problem.

Wait, is this a desktop or a laptop? Is it running Linux or Windows? If laptop, did you remember to clean it out and check all the fans are running? Is it making any noises other than static fan noise? Get a program to check temperatures and rerecord them. If windows, check the event viewer to see if any errors or even warnings (although these are generally useless) sound like they relate to a program stalling.

What drivers are you using? What's the specs? Did you change the thermal paste on all syncs with a proper proportion and new paste? Did you clean it properly using some q-tips and rubbing alcohol?

Have you done a fresh reinstall?

Desktop. Windows 8.1
No weird noises.
Actually haven't used the Event Viewer before.
Whatever drivers Windows 8.1 auto installs generally.
Specs posted.
It is all fairly newish, but if need be, I can put new paste.

>>52479822
Yep. Multiple times now.

So the RAM seems to have problems. Ran memtest from hcidesigns and it repeatedly gave these errors.
>>
>>52479954
Considering all that hardware do you have a really nice power supply, or is it a 7 year old no name 500 watt? My guess is that the issue is power related.

Also did you try updating the BIOS? (Try to fix RAM and power problems first though)
>>
>>52479989
It has a Corsair CX600. 600W obviously.Could I really have hit the limit on my power supply?

Another thing I have not had the chance to delve in. Not sure how I would update the BIOS, but I'll take a look into it.
>>
>>52480052
600watt should be fine.
I'm gonna lurk as I'm having the same problem with time desycining
>>
>>52479968
Alright try putting them in different slots, rerun tets.
If errors persist, try one stick until errors return. If they do not return, check one stick in each slot. Run a memtest each time.
>>
>>52480332
Switched slots. First boot had a memory management error and restarted. Second had a IQRN less than or equal to or something error. Third boot seems to be fine and memtest so far is not reporting any errors.
>>
Installed the ASUS AI Suite and so far it seems all my stuff is updated already and needs no update.
>>
>>52480259
Yeah, that has been bothering me a lot. Skype is just always out of order and messed up.
