does this sound like my powersupply is failing on me?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Alright, so i play on my PC alot, and this has never happend since just now. I was playing a game, and I crashed, computer froze up. Okay so I though fair enough, simple crash, turned the computer back on everything was working fine so far so good. Less than 1 minute into the game crash again. I restarted my computer now for the second time, the computer turned on for about 5 seconds and turned itself off. Now evertime I press my powerbutton to turn on the computer it just does a rinse and repeat of comming on for 5 seconds then goes off again.

What do you guys think? down to the powersupply?

Sounds more like an unstable overclock - try resetting your cmos and seeing if that fixes the problem.

What are your gpu temps
overheat maybe?
which driver version are you running?

That could be true, I did overclock the graphics cards this morning actually, will resetting CMOS actually sort that out?

My GPU temps are fine, they hardly ever go over 70c, the game was world of warcraft which isnt even demanding and I was monitoring my temps whilst in the game top was sitting around at 63c and bottom was in the mid 50's.

Resetting CMOS is worth a shot
dont see how it will affect a gpu oc though
reset cmos and try resetting gpu oc in software

Sign of a failing power supply would include the system loosing power completely, like you pulled the plug. As others have said it sounds more like an unstable overclock.
