Random PC restart when playing BF3 - Page 2

post #11 of 28
Sounds like PSU or as said above a quick BSOD due to an unstable OC.

Have you verified your OC is stable with things like Prime 95, Linx?

Problem seems to keep happening when i'm 5 seconds into playing BF3, just hear this buzz noise for 2 seconds on my headphones, half the time the pc restarts, half the time the pc is on but black screen.

Have you checked the Event Viewer? I was having this same issue a little bit ago, random freeze's when starting up a game(BF2). most of the time the PC would just freeze, as time went buy it got worse and worse.
After going over the Event Viewer, I was able to narrow it down to my motherboard. the CPU power was being messed with. might be worth checking.

This is all I could really find from Event Viewer:

The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

Lame. First step to take in this case would be a stress test. I would run both Prime95 AND a GPU stress test at the same time. this will put the most load on the PC. see if it crash's/freeze's/BSOD.


EDIT: or you could stagger them, run prime then run the GPU. however my system would pass each test just fine, it wasnt untill both the CPU and GPU where put underload that my mobo would act up.

I say PSU. Mine did the same thing awhile ago and a new PSU solved it.

According to Nvidia, 450w is the minimum req PSU. You should be ok to use it.

WOW! So i used my other Power Supply, game loads and all, as soon as the choose class screen/spawn point screen comes up, restarts again without any notice! Could it be the 285.62 beta drivers?
