Hi,
these weeks I did several VOF-turbulence-trancient simulation using Fluent.
But someday while doing simulation, electricity in my house dropped 2 seconds, and my computer restart automatically, simulation was also interupted, and need to be restarted.

My machine:
- i7 6900k (easy overclocked, using turbo setting from bios)
- X99 Sabertooth Bios 34xx
- DDR 4x8GB 2400 MHz
- Dual fan cooler
- M2 SSD 512 GB

Problem:
- Previously, I freely use 8 cores for Fluent, but after that dropped AC power, I can only use 3 cores. If I set 4 cores or more, I get this message in console panel (and even if I forced to do simulation):

- I have reinstalled Ansys, problem still occur
- I have reinstalled Windows, problem still occur
- I have reinstalled Bios, problem still occur
- I have unpluged-plug hardwares and cables, problem still occur
- I don't know what to do know. If I claim this for warranty, I don't know what to so say. Because no problem occur in other applications/softwares.

Thanks.
Hope you guys have some advice

Is it a corrupted .cas file? Maybe the power went out during a file-save.

Try a clean .cas file.

I don't think so.
because after that, I created everything from blank. Nothing from previous work.

sounds like that fluent file got corrupted? Can you start a new different fluent file and run it OK?
