Why does my PC keeps crashing and sometimes restarting.automatically?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

As the title suggests my PC keeps crashing and sometimes restarting.automatically when at idle watching Youtube videos or playing games for about 1 - 2 hours and whenever it does it shows a screen like this -

I need to know is my GPU failing or my monitor is past its prime(its very old HDMI TO VGA) or something? I used to oc the GPU a bit but after this I just run both CPU and GPU at stock because i'm afraid. Oh yeah I thought it must have been a heat issue so I cleaned my PC thoroughly(physically) set my fans at max speed and applied thermal paste to the CPU and the CPU temperature went down a bit !

I would guess your GPU is failing and triggering PSU protections, causing restarts.  Try another GPU?

whats are you cpu temps?

gpu shouldn't have been damaged from overclocks unless you also overclocked the voltage

i'd guess theres instability somewhere, but if it's an older system, thats not as likely

if it is an older system, its possible that the power supply is starting to fail

 

what are the components? just to get a sense of whats old enough to possibly fail

@jstudrawaI - I built this PC around 1.5 years ago all the products are covered in warranty i don't think it will fail just yet, and no I dont have spare gpu because my another GPU died (from an old pc). 

@Derrk - CPU temps are 49- 50 idle and 60-65 under load and yeah I've reset everything back to stock after this happened using MSI afterburner and no I did not mess with the volts. I did not face this instability before, man and as I said the system is new I think (1.5years)

Here are my specs - 

               CPU - Ryzen 5 1600
               Motherboard - Gigabyte AB350M - HD3
               RAM - ADATA XPG 8GB @ 2800MHz
               GPU - MSI GTX 1060 3GB OCV2
               SSD - WD Green 120GB
               HDD - WD Blue 1TB HDD
               PSU - Cooler Master 450 MWE
               Case - Antec GX505 Windowed

Why are all the letters bold? and the funny thing is I'm writing this from the system and it looks stable with all the fans spinning and everything.

You think since it's in the warranty period it won't fail?  

 

Best of luck figuring out your issue then, sir.

Hey that's not what I meant! If you're trying to help co-operate?

 

You just blew off the most likely cause of your problems.

 

Something is causing your PSU to trip it sounds like, and since you have graphical issues... it is most likely your GPU. 

 

I'd RMA it, even do a crossship or advanced RMA with a hold on your credit card, that they will release when they either:

 

A)  Find fault in your card and accept it as defective

 

B)  Don't find fault in your card and they make you send in that cross shipped one back

 

But your comment is very ignorant, if I can be blunt here.  Warranty is an insurance of sorts against the standard calculated failure rate of a product in the majority of its life cycle.  Doesn't mean something isn't going to fail.  Not at all.
