Computer powering off

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

Just wondering if you have any ideas on what i can check.

About a month ago my computer hard powered off, after about a second it powers back on (killed one of my ssd's the first time it happened)

slowly over the past computer weeks it has been happening more and more. My gpu drivers were about a year out of date so i updated those and either the issue just happend to get worse on its own, or the new drivers made the issue worse. It is pretty much powering off as soon as i get into a game now.

Checked the temps on everything, both cpus are staying in the 50s and the gpu in the high 60s. Voltages seemed within range as well.

Since 3D loads seem to be the culprit i am going to pick up a GTX 1050ti this afternoon to try as a test.

Any thoughts on other things to check?


And again this is a hard power off, like someone yanked the power cable out, then after a second or two, it powers on and boots normally. Oh and i checked the windows logs and there is nothing leading up to the power off that indicates anything, i just get the log that says the last power off was unexpected.

Your CPU cooler is correctly installed?
Every fan starts with the computer?

Just asking because a relative said they needed to buy a new computer as the old one started then turned off automatically.
They also said it become worser over time and now something also scrambled inside the desktop.

It turned out that their computer's CPU cooler was loose (vibrations??).

Have a new GTX 1060 when it have worked well for weeks when the grafics starting to freeze up.
I turned out that my 1060 had a temp around 96 deg C, with it's fan standing still.
Suppose I had turned down the fan speed too much in MSI Afterburner... And overheating safety throttle down the 1060??

Sounds like the PSU is shutting down to prevent damage to the system. If you've stressed it a lot then it could very well be the cause.

So i popped in a GTX 1050 TI and the issue hasnt occurred. So either it was the GPU, or the new gpu draws so much less power it isnt causing the issue to happen

You'd have been better off buying a new PSU than a new GPU as the 1050Ti is extremely weak compared with your 390.

He stated he was going to buy it. Pretty expensive thing to buy just to test when the PSU is four years old and shutting down due to not being able to handle the strain.
