PC turns off randomly

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

i was having problems with my temperatures recently so i took teh chassais case off, and it was all fien as air was getting to it.

Today, i put it back on to see if it would be ok, but it still turned off randomly, particularaly when i play call of duty 2.

What could this be

Regards

This is most probably becasue within the bios on your motherboard there is a shutdown Temp set. In other words when your CPU hits a certain Temp your pc will shut itself down to protect itself as such.

To remedy this you need to go into your bios and under ''PC HEALTH STATUS'' there will be an option to set a shutdown temp..all you need to do is disable it and save+exit. Saying this i wouldnt do this as it seems your CPU is getting fairly hot and you may to get a better CPU cooler and some new thermal compound such as Arctic silver 5

Yeah it does sound like a temperature issue.

What cooling are you currently using, such as CPU and case?

Is your system running at stock speeds or have you overclocked your rig?

EDIT: oh and hello and welcome to the forums

To check your Temps please download a program called ''Speedfan'' found here :http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php

I would be checking into the NeoHE 550W, those were proven to be a pain when match with an ASUS board. Antec swears the problem was fix but maybe you could have one of those faulty units.

Honestly, based on the bad reviews on the NeoHE 550W at newegg I'd say it's still crap. See Link Here..

I had one the next week it was release and it started to crap out from the very first run, system would freeze during windows, would not boot at all, it would boot but then it would freeze.........P.O.S. product. I returned it to newegg and get the OCZ PowerStream, system has been flawless since then.

BTW, I never wrote my negative comment on the NeoHE PSU. I will never buy an Antec PSU ever. I've had 3 that went dead and sold the only one that has ever worked for me, then again I'm not sorry I sold it because I'm getting me a Silverstone.

Make sure you have proper cooling and a thermal grease applied.

I agree with this also. A Faulty PSU can actually cause random restarts and shutdowns and generall instability and you may wish to test out a different PSU in your system to see if it is that at fault and if so purchase a new PSU.

A good PSU would be this..im not aware of your budget so dont exclaim lol :http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151024

Do you overclock, if so, make sure you have fan or fans point directly to RAM and HDD(s). I found that if those overheat, it's likely that the computer will restart.
