Is this a powersupply related problem?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Kai, my secondary rig has always ran well, until one day it just started shutting off on it's own. It even shuts off while i keep it on the post screen. So my question is, is this related to a defect power supply, or is it something else?
Thanks in advance!

First guess would be that the CPU is overheating. Check the CPU cooler to see if it is clean. On my very first build, after a year of use, it started restarting mid-gaming session. I opened it up to see the cooler was plastered with a thick layer of dust. Cleaned it and it was fine.

Yeah, clean the CPU cooler and reapply some thermal compound. If it still is messing up, then it might be the PSU.

That's the first thing i checked. When it would boot into windows, i would open up hardware monitor, to check the tempatures, and the tempatures don't pass 40c. If youwant the exact specs of this pc, just golook at my systems in my profile. Could it be the ram?

This

are you getting a blue screen, or a restart, or a shutdown?

Thanks for all the replies! I'll just clear up what is happening.
From what i've seen, the cpu block is on, and working at it's fullest. I will check this when i get home, but i dought it. The computer will shut off instantly, no blue screen, just a shutoff. It will do it in windows, in the post screen, anywhere. I will test my PSU once i get home, if i find my multimeter.
