Computer Randomly Shuts down

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey Just wondering if anyone would be able to help me

I've been having some random shut downs with the following build which is only about a month and a half old the gtx 570 is only a few days old and since then the problems have gotten worse.

Code:
Intel Core i7 930 at stock with stock cooler
Corsair XSP 1600MHZ 6g ram
PNY gtx 570
Gigaybyte GA-X58-USB3
FSP Everest 1010W psu
1tb Samsung HD103SJ (system Drive)
750gb Seagate Baracuda (secondary storage disk)
LG HL-DT-ST DVDRam GSA-H66N DVD drive.
I had left the pc down to my local pc store and they thought my windows install was corrupted, they couldn't replicate the same random restarting problem( but they did c my install restarting when booting into windows ) and did a fresh install of windows 7 professional x64 onto my drive.

The pc worked fine for most of December but as of the 4th of Jan I had to reinstall windows and since then I've been getting alot of random restarts with event 41 in my event logs.

The problem seems to worsen when ever I try and play Crysis, the system usually shuts down at the intial game loading screen and If I can get into game it plays fine.

Could it be my DVD drive is corrupting the install and causing problems since its a burned DVD? It also makes a clicking noise when loading programs off UBCD as well as when I was installing Crysis?

I left my pc down to my local store and they got it fixed, they couldnt replicate the problem on a fresh install which lead them to believe it was my windows 7 dvd, but I'm now thinking it could be my DVD from what I stated above.

The other Idea I had is that it could be my PSU, I've got a 550w corsair PSU but i dont think that would be enough to test the system on.

Thanks ALOT.

Test with another PSU.

If possible, try to borrow one from the shop (or at least bring your rig back in, tell them to hook a new one to it and test free of charge since they obviously had a huge misdiagnosis).

Thats the problem, the shop only sells FSP or xigmatek PSU's

Would I be able to run the system on my Corsair PSU if I swap out my GTX570 for a 4850?

Also is there any way to replicate restarts easily as its really really hard to replicate.

If it's at stock I'm not even sure you'd have to do that.
