Right ok, I've had this computer built for me around 18 months ago by good ole' Chillblast, I came back off tour with a few grand in my back pocket so I thought 'What The Hell!' so I slammed a small chunk into what I was lead to believe a 'Gaming PC'...
Here is exactly what odds and sods are inside it:
So before I most likely get slammed for what I chose to go inside it, I'm no wizard when it comes to rigs I can only play them when it comes to opening the side of the machine it goes way over my head lol.
Around 4 months ago I was experiencing a strange noise which sounded a bit like I can only describe as a playing card against a bike wheel so straight away I thought 'Ah something wrong with one of the fans inside the PC'
Me being me I left it and a month or so later the news stopped and as it stopped I completely forgot about it.. Until now.
I currently have 2 weeks off work so this week I've kinda give the computer a good hammering with the likes of BF3, CSGO and LFD2.
When I initially begin to play its completely fine, 10 minutes into game play the PC decides to shut itself down, giving me no error messages or no issues detected in the 'Issue Center'
Over the past 24 I've been scouring the internet for possible solutions of what it may be, somebody mentioned something about disabling one of my Audio drivers as I had more than 1 running at the same time that hasn't worked I'm still experiencing the crashes.
Somebody mentioned a piece of software known as Furmark, I ran the software I didn't have a clue what I was pressing when I ran it I clicked 'BurnIn Test' I think I'm not 100%, anyway the PC decided to crash the Temp reach around 70+ and it randomly restarted.
I'm now sitting here with the side of my PC off thinking
To let you all know guys I appreciate every single piece of advice/help but I'm not very 'switched on' when it comes to dealing with the maintenance sides of things so you may need to go into detail on how things are done.
Ah not to forget I have given it a Restore too but it hasn't fixed anything.
