random shut offs

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Recently had thought that my board was bad because i was getting instant offs when having all dimms full. my motherboard manual states it can take ss/ds sticks in all slots and be fine. after consulting with RMA dept. they approved an rma.
Just got another instant shut off while watching a netflix movies and only 5 slots full. what else could be causing this???? cpu temps are very acceptable30-40 and never any kind of start error messages of any kind. if its the PSU i dont have another of this size to test against, 850W silverstone.

core i7 920 stock
renaissance
5x1 xms3 1066
4850 cf
silverstone 850w
any way to test this PSU?

Hmm well no objection to guessing: I think it's the butler in the kitchen with the candlestick.

You say your computer instant offs. Okay- well I'm not sure what instant off means. Does the computer just turn off or does it blue screen on you? Is it your computer shutting down or just a video card?

I see 5x1 1066 ram. That's a lot of room for error. I'd be looking at ram compatability and also insuring that your empty slot isn't the one that needs to be filled to accommodate tripple channel ram. All 6 slots full have sometimes caused people grief but not spontaneous shutoffs. I'm wondering if an auto setting in your bios isn't giving the ram the juice that it needs across 5 Dimms. I might try just plugging in 3 sticks and ensure you're in the triple channel slots. You might even consider doing a memorytest on it- you might find a faulty stick?

Also I would be going into the event viewer in my control panel under system and security and looking for bug check codes. They'll be in the error section. Look at those and let us know of the error code.

An instant off as in computer is shutting down completely with no warning suggests power supply- of course, but could just be the connection on your board. I'd look into that and make sure it's locked into place properly- both the large connector and smaller 8 pin connection. What type of mobo is it again?

Have you messed with anything in the bios? Having a stock processor suggests that you haven't but who knows?

Finally I would be looking at flashing your bios. It may just need an update to deal with something you have plugged into your board.

So that's my guess for now anyway. Waiting for more information.

it is a shut down, no blue screen no nothing, machine just turns off. all ram is the same brand and model. manual says it can take single and double sided memory in all slots. bios up to date, was OC'ing then at stock for several months with same problem. i pretty much am gonna have to find a big enough PSU to try and really troubleshoot this. i have no idea where i can get one from. all my extras are old and under 600w with no PCI e connections.

this sucks

Something like this could related to HDD or Memory.
Maybe you HDD is weak. Or probably one of your memory module is broken.
You can start by check your memory module.
Try using one of them one by one.
Did you have another HDD to test?

A defective memory module should throw an error or crash, not an instant off.

That sounds like a PSU\\motherboard issue to me.

As mentioned above,removing 1 stick might not help if it's the mobo-try using just 3-then swap them to the secondary slots and test there.Also exactly what motherboard are you using? Overheating VRM's could cause this I believe.Fill out your system specs,make it a little easier to diagnose.

im thinking its the PSU now, no error messages is really standing out as a symptom of that. its a silverstone 850w and they don't make that model anymore i dont think, over 2 yrs old. will they still accept rma? wasn't thinking so.

I don't know, but a quick email to silverstone or a check on their website will probably tell you.

Why not drop one of you GPUs out of crossfire and use the 600w (presuming it is of proper quality) to test?

Re-seat all of your power connectors first.
