I was copying some files from my network to a hard drive when my computer froze. I finally had to do a power off and when it rebooted it stopped at the initial ASUS screen. I was unable to get it to go to BIOS. I tried it again this morning and the same thing happened. I got distracted and left it and after about 10 minutes it booted to the Windows boot menu. My keyboard was not connected so it default booted to normal or I would have switched it to safe mode. It went all the way to the start Windows screen but never got to desktop. I did another power off and rebooted. It hung again at the ASUS screen but after about another 10 minutes it did go to BIOS. Everything looked fine except the CPU temp was 125F/52C which seems high since it is not doing anything but booting but still under the max of 144F/62C. I forgot to check what the max temp is set in BIOS and now can't get back in. I have a water cooler if it has gone bad would that explain the behavior? Or is it a bad MB? CPU?
