I downloaded the motherboard monitor and it came out with
an 85F on one set and 125F on the other.
I'm not sure what's normal...
Aside that, before I clean installed Windows Professional
I had Windows Server Edition on the same computer(I
recently formatted the main drive and installed
professional)... When I had Windows Server Edition it gave
me the following problem, which is very different than the
Windows Prof Edition.

the checksums and where it typically pops up with a
Windows booting bar(black and white) it would hang and
give me a plain grey screen. I typically fixed that
problem by restarting quite a few times, manually.
I'm using the exact same computer(Only newly formatted)
with the same old hardware with Windows Prof. And my
problem now is the restart bug.
I wonder if either of you could tell me whether those two
are related in any way.
And also, is that temperature correct? Or should it be
lower? Could that be the problem (I unfortunately can't
