PC randomly stops working

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello guys,

this happened 5th time in week. Firstly, my screen lost signal and than music I was listening to started stuttering and lagging. Sometimes, my PC just hard restart itself.

So when it happened, besides screen no signal, music started lagging but more laggy it was the less my HDD LED blinked and then it stopped blinking completely. So I had to hard restart PC. I felt like PSU stopped giving power to SDD. I think it can be faulty PSU because, as i said, sometimes, my PC just hard restart itself.

Today I pressed power button and no signal for screen BUT I noticed that HDD LED was always on, not a single blink. Waited approx 7 mins, nothing happened. I could not turn off PC by holding power button. So I turned off PSU with switch and it worked. PC booted. Never happened to me before.

Here is my setup:

MB: MSi P67A-C45
CPU: Intel i5 2500K 4,2GHz (OC since I got it)
Cooler: Scythe Mugen 3
RAM: 2x4GB Kingston 1600 CL9 XMP
VGA: Sapphire HD 6950 Toxic - unlocked 6970
HDD: Samsung F1 spinpoint 7200 750GB (~5 year old)
SSD: Corsair Force series 3 - 60 GB
PSU: Corsair CX600, Case: Thermaltake Mambo
LCD: Samsung P2470HD 24" FullHD DVB-T, HDMI, SCART, DVI

Also my W7 is installed on SSD and I bought this PC almost 2 years ago.

Please help me identify what is causing problems. I wan to know why this happened all of sudden.

Thank you.

Sounds like the SSD

I had a problem like that once with a brand new SSD

On the other hand it could be the PSU its a CX which is not a very good unit
