Bad motherboard?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
My computer has just started randomly crashing, no BSOD or anything it just shuts down. At first i thought one of the drives in my raid 0 was because it got a S.M.A.R.T error once. So i pulled that drive out and reinstalled the operating system but it is doing it still. Also it would crash when trying to enable SLI on the same driver that i was using before. I tried reinstalling the drivers and that didn't work. Then i took the sli bridge off and put it back on and it enabled without crashing. Then i started playing a game and after a few minutes it crashed again. My temps are ok on everything and nothing is overclocked. It seems like the shutdowns are random. This behavior has happened before on my old Crosshair IV Formula which turned out to be a bad mobo. What do you guys think? Has crashed loading windows multiple times also.

Try one video card at a time- if both work individually then your psu is too small for
Sli

Wrong, with my older parts my last motherboard did the EXACT same thing as this one and after i got my board back from ASUS my computer worked flawlessly. Just because there is not a BSOD doesn't mean its the power supply lol.

usually when that happens its a PSU issues. If it was a RAM issues or driver issues you would get a BSOD.

And regarding what you stated about it not being a PSU issues.... Every pc i have ever worked on as a tech and my personal computers it was in fact the PSU. If it works fine with one card at a time then its the PSU and you may want to at least test a different one with a multiple GPU config just to ensure your findings.

Im not stating your PSU is not powerful enough. Im saying that it might be defective. Try another PSU if you can to see what happens. But ill bet its the PSU



I will put money on it!

Also new Nvidia drivers suck for older GPUS from what ive seen and i had a similar issue until I reverted to way older drivers. But im only running one card. Maybe try some older drivers its a lot cheaper than getting another psu. Try the ones on the disk thats what i had to do. So thats why im switching back to AMD

I don't think its the power supply because the last time it did this it was the motherboard, after asus fixed it i had no problems. And it has been working with the SLI just fine since i got the new parts. And even if i have it booted into safe and not doing anything it will crash eventually. Only way i could see the power supply being a problem would be it has caused failures in the motherboards? But then how come non of my other parts have failed?

Uninstall old drivers. Put the disk in that came with your card, enable SLI and see if that works. I had a similar issues. If that dont work you can still install the latest drivers. do that and report back. thumb.gif

What did you find out with the old drivers? No issues?
