Computer Shuts Down Minutes After Desktop Help A Guy Out :)))  

post #1 of 56
Thread Starter 
I posted my problem in the Intel section last night, and they were help in eliminating what the problem is, but unfortunately it wasn't fixed... Let's see if fresh eyes and in a different section help...

Basically what is happening, is minutes after I arrive on desktop the computer shuts down, suddenly, like a power outage... No fancy windows 7 text it was sudden...

I have ruled out my RAM because I have swapped the sticks out and used different channels.

I also ruled out windows and corrupt hard drives because I did a fresh install and everything...

I have removed my ATI suite drivers, and it still happens... You guys got any ideas *** this is???

EDIT: Im pretty sure it ain't overheating, there is like zero hot air coming off my processor, the only heat is from the video card, and even then its minute... I also right before I fired it up, cleaned it, air filters and fan blades, yah know the usual... So it's not a airflow problem...

power supply , it could be broken and now it very easily overheats, (couple of minutes of windows)

Even high end power suppies fail.

Dude I'm telling you, I have my case open air, my hand right above it's exhaust fan, there is like NO heat coming off it... The other thing is, if it was overheating, wouldn't the computer shutdown quicker and quicker the more i started it up? It's occurring randomly now, it used to be like a few minutes, now I'm able to sit on overclock for like 10 minutes.

Sounds like problem with power supply, wall socket or short circuit.

I would say PSU also. Are you hearing any unusual whining/buzzing coming from your PSU? Did you unhook everything when you cleaned out your system? Might be a short somewhere. I'd take off your OC see if that helps.

Guise! I swear it's not the power supply... I've been typing for like 15 minutes now atleast, last night it went off after like 5... I think me uninstalling AMD catalyst suite did something...

To check if it's overheating, run HWMonitor and watch the temps. If it's overheating, the heatsink may not be attached properly which is why it feels cool. The heat is still in the CPU.

If it's the power supply, run an intensive game that maxes out all your cores and is hard on the GPU (GTA IV comes to mind) - Have HWMonitor in the background and monitor temps.

If it just shuts down like that, then it's your power supply.

boot into safe mode and see if you restart.

I had HWMonitor on last night before it shut off... What measurements you want me to take??? Mins Max's Values??? CPU, VGA??? TBH I'm such a noob I don't know what's hot and cold, so I will write them down, also linkin93, I believe your right, as I was cleaning I unseated the CPU fan/heatsink to clean the heatsink, the fan is a pain in the ass to clamp down, theres like these 4 twisty things on the corners, I can manage two in but the left two are flimsy, it stays on the cpu but im wondering if they are broken :S...
