Help: PC keeps turning off and restarting - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
I did this test and all my 4 case fans came one with all my LEDs and they did NOT turn off.

I am going to take out 1 video card and see what happens. Any chance that I can have a virus? I am tempted to try a system restore, if anything I guess I can reload Windows 7 and wipe the whole harddrive. Nothing looks bad inside either.

Download HWMonitor and keep and eye on your temperatures. I'm voting for overheating, for the moment.

Getting rid of that junk PSU will do your system some good, however.

If it was the psu then yes, I would think so, but not for certain. Have you done an OS reinstall?

*edit*
Never mind, forgot the pc was off, so I doubt the os would have gotten corrupted. Though I would save that for a last resort. If you can make an image of your drive in safe mode using easeus or something you could always put it back.

I removed one of my Graphics cards and still have the same problem. What exactly does it monitor? Just CPU temps?

I am going to try and make a backup of my files. Although if I had a virus the problem may continue IF it's not the PSU

Update:
As stated previously, removing my #2 video card yielded nothing and the problem continued. Removing my #1 video card which is over 1 year old now and replacing it with my #2 video card seems to have fixed my problem. The swapping of cards updating from 275.XX to 280.XX drivers seems to have helped solve my problem. Upon removing my #1 video card, I happened to notice a piece of what seemed to be part of a fiber washer or cloth. It was tiny but it was lodged in between the PCI slot and card connector. I inspected my cards and could not see anything that appeared broken. It was noticeably dustier than my newer card, which may lead me to believe it was an overheating issue as stated above.
