PC Restarting - No BSOD, No Dump File - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
Currently testing RAM. I already ran it once in MemTest with 4 passes. Now, I'm testing single stick and switching slots, all for 4 passes. If no errors pop up, it seems I'll have to get a new PSU and see if it works. If not, then that leaves the CPU and MOBO.

Also, found out that, in the BIOS, it is set to stay off when there is power loss (this is the default setting). Earlier, I turned off automatic restart in the Windows system settings, and it would still restart. It the computer were to stay completely off and not restart when it crashed, would that be a sure sign of a bad PSU? If it keeps restarting after every crash, could it not be the PSU?

I had this restart problem. MemTest passed the RAM just fine but would still crash. Got different RAM and no more crashing. If anything its the MB that usually goes bad first.

Hmm, so I should replace RAM first, then if it doesn't work, try a new PSU. If that doesn't work, then on to MOBO, and CPU if that fails.

Most tend to listen to Shilka when it comes to PSU's. He's our Subject Matter Expert on this and if he says your PSU, the real heart of any computer, is garbage, Shilka has already done the research and his info is solid.

Force shutdowns like that usually happen on a PSU overload. If it was memory, there would have been some type of error or log file you can review. It sounds to me like you current unit is going out the door. If you can't spend a lot, Shilka can point you to a cost effective unit for your budget.

Hey, I don't want any arguing in my thread.

Anyways,
I ran the tests on the RAM and, as expected, no errors found. Still, I will be getting some basic Crucial RAM and test that just to be absolutely sure if something is up with my current RAM.

Next will be new PSU. I've messaged shilka about that.

*With help from shilka, I have decided on the EVGA SuperNOVA 550 G2.

**Orders have been placed. Latest it can come is June 23rd.

The parts have arrived. Installed the new RAM and ran MemTest to make sure it was all good. Computer restarted during MemTest, so the memory isn't at fault. Time to install the new PSU.

*Since I've taken everything out, I decided this is a good time to clean up the case and components. The dust bunnies on the CPU heatsink were gnarly.

PSU did not fix it. Took out GPU and tried IntelBurnTest, just to make sure, and no change. Will have to install new motherboard, and if that doesn't work, it has to be the CPU.

ALRIGHT! Installed the motherboard, reset Windows 10, got drivers and IntelBurnTest, ran it and it didn't shut off in a few seconds like it would on the old motherboard! More testing needs to be done, but this looks promising!

* I can only guess that I damaged the old motherboard by overclocking. Perhaps the VRMs got messed up.

** Everything is working a-OK. I'd like to thank everyone for helping me out!
