Puse dead?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok my power supply is a Corsair TX-750W, a few months ago i had a issue where the computer would instantly shutdown. There looks to be no BSOD. In event viewer it shows Kernel power event id 41 bugcode 0. This just means the computer shutdown unexpectedly. Then one day it just stopped happening. Now its doing it AGAIN. So i reinstalled Windows 7 and it appeared fixed. Then it happend again. Sometimes it will crash trying to load windows. Most of the time it can be anywhere from 2min- a few hours before it crashes. Doesn't matter if im in a game or not, it crashes doing anything. All my voltages look right in the bios and in software. Nothing is overheating. It seems weird to me that it could be a power supply issue since it stopped and is starting to come back. Do you guys think its a hardware or software problem?

It could be something shorting out and tripping the OCP on the power supply. The only sure way to diagnose it would be to plug in another power supply and test with that.

Well it does sound like it may be acting up, what happens if you put the computer under full load? Try running furmark and prime95 simultaneously and see if it can take that.

I think it MIGHT be my graphics driver. i uninstalled 280 drivers and used a windows driver and i have no crashed in about 1 hour. so it might yet still happen.

That's good to hear, hopefully you won't have to RMA your PSU after all.
