Random shutdowns - any ideas? - Page 3

post #21 of 51
I think it could be your PSU. If you have a crap PSU, the wattage won't save you. Your PSU probably needs an upgrade.

Has anyone suggested the mobo? If no one has then I'll say check your mobo surface for possible damages or cracks. If possible, swap in a working one see if it better.

I think we've pretty well covered every component here lol

psu, cpu, RAM, mobo, HDD.....eliminate the stuff you KNOW to be good and swap out the others to test.

mobo----good
psu----good
RAM---tested but have you exchanged for known stable RAM?
HDD---testing
cpu----?
Windows------try repairing your install or back it up using a drive imaging program then install fresh...if that doesnt fix you can always reload form image

I'm still saying it's the PSU. That one you have is a $20 generic one. That's a reciped for disaster. Trust me, I've already gone through two power supplies because the first one was a $16 450W. The transformers and caps are really small, so any voltage dip won't iron out in the long run. Also, they just don't have big enough heatsinks to keep the transformer cool. If the other unit was older, it may not have had enough amps. Same with the current one. I'd strongly reccomend getting a new quality power supply.

yeah i suppose its still possible i really dont see heat being an issue with the psu having 2 fans(in and out) but maybe

I know my way around crap power supplies. I have a 100W IBM power supply from about seven or eight years ago that weighs more than my 450W did. My ten-year old FSP 235W ways even more, and my 400W FSP weighs a lot for its size. Do the weight test. If it feels like you could do bicep curls with it, then it could be alright. If it weighs very little, get a new unit.
