    I guess you have the power supply to the Sonata 3 like mine? that is to say, a 500W? If so the problem is not the Power supply . I would say more a problem with the Bios. tried to update it.

    I have a ASUS motherboard so I do not know too much with the giga-byte. but trying to go to the manufacturer's site and download the latest BIOS.

    There are 5 versions of the bios (F1 to F5) and the E8400 is supported from the very beginning, so I do not see why this would be the bios that would cause such a thing. Is Your graphics drivers are up to date? the problem did not appear after an update of these?
