My computer keeps on shutting off while playing games - Page 2

post #11 of 12
stress test your ram/gpu/cpu one by one and let me know in which tests your pc switchs off? If you have more than 2 sticks of ram take them out leaving only 1 stick of ram inside and test with a game If its only happening to games then it could be your motherboards power management which is at fault.
Btw disconnect any other components like harddrives, dvd, sound card, wifi etc...

-sometimes the game crash with very disturbing noise from the speakers and i cant do anything except to shut the pc down and when i turn the pc on, it stops working in the gigabyte screen , and sometimes the game crash and a red screen appears with same disturbing noise and then the pc restart by itself and i think it may had given me a BSOD few times but im not sure about that

It could be almost anything with that scenario...hmm.

That's some decent advise.

Take a look at your motherboard and GPU...see if you can see any bulging or busted capacitors.



I'd say start by removing all extra parts.
1 mouse
1 keyboard
1 HDD (boot only)
1 CPU
RAM/PSU/FANS leave as is.

You can do a RAM test using memtest.


You can do a HDD test using your OEM's provided software.

(Or you could use UBCD and do both from one CD. Hiren's Boot Disc can also do that.)

So...remove the GPU and disconnect any extra HDDs and ODDs and PCI cards.
With all overclocks turned off....
Motherboard BIOS updated to the latest...
And BIOS set to defaults....

Run a prime95 test with HWmonitor running to monitor temperatures.

If after testing the RAM/HDD/CPU you don't have any issues....proceed to test the GPU.

Run furmark and monitor temperatures with hwmonitor...or gpuz.
Then try 3dmark11 benchmark.
