Computer Shuts off randomly

Recommended Posts

So this computer I build has been shutting off without warning. Then I have to wait about half a minute before I can turn it on again. It seems to happen more often when I run intensive programs such as games.

 

Its most likely not a software issue because it shut off when I was in the bios and I've reinstalled the operating system.

 

I've tried running single RAM DIMMS

I thought it might have been the motherboard so I changed the motherboard.

I've tried different graphics cards, but I doubt that could be the problem.

 

Right now I'm thinking the problem is with the PSU

It's either the psu or temperature. What exactly are the specs of this system in question, as you may need more power from the psu. Alternately you may need a better cooling solution.

Just so I'm not left out, and in case you haven't got the message from the 3 other users saying so, I think it's probably the PSU too :thumbsup:

#4 check the Power Supply :)

 

Also.... check and make sure that the power switch on the case is working correctly (simple thing I know, but they do wear out and can go from not working at all to just shorting out long enough to cause a shut down).
