AMD FX-8320 processor

ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3 motherboard, updated to most recent available BIOS (rev. 2101)

Windows 10 64-bit


System has been running fine for two years, now it is rebooting almost constantly. Can boot up into Safe Mode and it stays up anywhere from 1 to 10 minutes then it reboots, sometimes it will boot normally but it never stays up more than a minute after a normal reboot.

Event log shows the fatal hardware error message:

Component: AMD Northbridge

Error type: 11

Processor APIC ID: 0

Event ID:20

Source: WHEA-Logger


I've seen all sorts of posts, etc. but have not seen any real solutions. Is this an issue with the processor or the motherboard? I have not done any overclocking, etc., everything is default in the BIOS.
