My custom desktop has been shutting down(screens dark, towers lights dark, no fan sounds and unresponsive unless removed from power for 60 seconds) at random intervals.

I took it to my local computer shop and they said that I had some bad sectors on my hard drive for my C: Drive and I that thermal paste had seeped into my old motherboard.

I had them replace the processor(FX8370E to Ryzen 5 2600), motherboard and memory sticks but I kept all of the same hard drives and my Nvidia GTX 970. I do get a warning: +12V voltage 3.357V as soon as I log in but everything seems to be within the margins.

I have two problems. I need to switch the boot drive and how to move the system reserved drive. I have already cloned my C: drive to another physical drive but I can't get it the disk manager or boot to accept it as the new one so I can switch it. My hope is that the continued issues are caused by the boot drive still having those bad sectors because my games are installed on multiple drives and I've experienced the same issue across each of them.

Any pointers or tips anyone could provide would be most helpful. Normally, I would go to my local computer shop for service but unfortunately, they are currently closed down.

Best Regards,

RAL

A Hard Disk wouldn't cause shutdowns and fans shutting down. Please, list your PSU as that is the most important factor in your problem.
