Rebooting while gaming !

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone !

First of all i'm new to this forum and english isn't my native language, so tell me when i'm wrong, it helps thumb.gif

Here's my problem :

2 weeks ago i was playing Left 4 Dead when my pc restarted for no reason, i have good temps, about 45°C on the i3 2100 and 65°C on the HD6870.

Yesterday it did while playing Borderlands... weird.

Today it did 2 times, while playing Metro 2033 and Skyrim !!!

What is wrong with my setup ? it always worked great since last summer ! Who's fault is that ? PSU ? Have it since July ! Mobo ? Have it since August ! Should i upgrade the bios (actually 1850), Is there something wrong with my GFX ???

Thank you in advance for your help wink.gif

P.S.: I had this message 2 times in the 2 last weeks while not gaming "the driver stopped responding and recovered" Also had it few month ago with a GTS450...

Sounds like a power supply problem if your computer reboots in game. At that point your using the most amount of power. Only a guess with not knowing what Power Supply your running.
