Computer shuts off when playing, no warning, no message when it comes back one, just turns off

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hello, got a computer from a friend that needed some cash. Everything seemed to be working great but now it will just shuts it self off when its puts under a load, like The witcher 2, and even the freaking sims 3 makes the computer just shut off after about 5-10 min of play. Heres my specs, i'm woundering if my card is to good for my CPU??? Or my next guess is the power supply is a POS, its a 600w diablotek. Or lastly the ram, but i dont think its that, its a really good, low latency 2 x 2gb sticks. Ill try and remember the name, etc.

At first i figured it was a heat issue, since there is only two fans. But the sides havn't been on the case for a while, since my friend bought the video card in February. So i stuck a box fan next to the case and fired up the witcher 2, settings were on high, ran at 40 FPS for about 10 min then bloop, black screen and the computer shut off...... So its not the heat nothing in the whole case got over 55 C, so now im here as i have no clue what to do. The case is a full tower thermaltake case, so space/heat isn't an issue either.

If it is my card that is stressing the CPU can i just under clock my card???? I would like for this computer to work without having to replacing anything, all the parts are bought within the past year, maybe two at max.

Thanks for the help, i just spent all night changing drivers for my GPU, changing settings, and playing about 10 min at a time of random high demand games. Which suck because they look awesome and run great before the computer turns off. I think when my local comp repair place opens ill take my ram and PS down and have them test them real quick since its free and they are cool guys.

If anyone else has any suggestions i am LISTENING

heres the specs, let me know if anything else is needed

Hello
Is the cpu oc'ed in any way? From personal experience,my current rig would shut itself down in certain games, while functioning regular in everything else. If it's oc'ed, check for stability issues, worked for me

Ya thats my thought atm too, at 10 ill take it in to get tested, Thanks for the second opinion, glad i was thinikng correct, been out of the CPU world for a couple years and it feels like everything has changed soooo much lol, use to think i was pretty smart with computer builds and hardware issues...

Probably the power supply. Has this issue been occurring ever since the card was upgraded?

i didn't think so. but maybe this kid was no completely honest, i saw him play mass effect for like 10 min, minimize it, open up BF3 start a game on that, Minimize that and opened up a 720p movie and switched between them for another 10 min or so on 2 monitors and it didn't seem to lag at all really, just a jump here and there, BUT it didn't turn off thats for damn sure lol. His basement is cooler by a good 10-15 degress, my office has a tortoise in it at the moment so its usually a tad warmer then the rest of the house.

I think he would have said something about it but who knows, damn wish i would have ordered that PS tester the other day, would come in handy about now, no were is open at 6am

Check the system tab in event viewer for a kernel power error. Those usually indicate either a BSOD or PSU issue.

Yup kernel power error, that would be a power error correct ???? I don't know why i didn't check the system event viewer to begin with, forgot about it completely

His psu seems to be within spec for the card. Requirements on the 12 volt rail are 30 amps minimum and this psu appears to rated at 40. However cheap power supplies can be unstable when pushed hard though which might explain things.

that was my thought too, i knew it was rated correctly, but i was guessing its crapping out and not putting forth that full 40 amps, and i'm sure an unstable power supply doesn't make things run smooth
