Computer randomly shuts off kinda

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Not sure if this is my power supply or not but this is what is happening.

As I was playing minecraft. My computer shuts down but my cases lights and power supply stay on. The ps fan is on full speed or atleast spinning fast enough to hear it.

After switching the ps off and then on. It did the same thing again about 4 to 8 minutes later.

maybe try replacing the power supply and then seeing if your system still has this issue, check your temps make sure nothing is running too hot and that everything is at reasonable temps (i know minecraft isnt a graphic demanding game but its always good to check incase something is wrong).

maybe try running prime95 along with a temp monitoring program to make sure your CPU heatsink fan is performing as it should. maybe stress test the GPU and check if thats working well aswell.

my friend had a virus in his system that caused his system to behave like that and a format did the job of fixing the issue. i hope that gives you a general idea on where to look for the error.

Go to a local pc store to see if you can borrow a PS from them.
