How can I determine what is causing my PC to power down randomly

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

In my rig i have

 

8GB Hyper x RGB ram

Ryzen 5 3600

Gigabyte X570 gaming X Mobo

RTX 2060 super

EVGA 600W PSU

 

After a variable amount of time, my system power flickers and, say, I'm in the middle of doing something, my system will act like it was turned off and back on but it doesn't go back though the boot process. My fan lights and whatnot all stay on but my display goes blank. I've gotten a new PSU (same model), used my old gt 760 (i think) GPU, re-seated and reapplied thermal compound to my cpu, I've even reinstalled windows and gpu drivers. I'm all out of ideas on what to do

 

UPDATE: After trying almost every part of my PC, I ended up swapping motherboard to a B450 and that fixed my issue. X570 MOBO is currently awaiting for RMA until I get a socket cover.

Does this happen when cpu or gpu under a heavy load? Or just randomly

Seems random, it’s don’t it while playing a not very graphically intense game as well as just web browsing.

I have had this same issue 2 times recently and never before and haven't found anything on forums or on the internet in general

 

under heavy load suddenly no signal to both my monitors and no power to peripherals, but PC stays on, all the lights work and both GPU and CPU fans are spinning normally. Only way out of it is to press the power button down long to turn off the PC and after that it boots up normally.

Yes! Exactly this, I’ve found only one other post anywhere with the same problem but with no solution. Mine does it so often that I really can’t get into playing anything. If you manage to find a solution I’d appreciate if you come back and shared.

🤔 Assuming everything is up to date including your bios, it could be many things like your anti-virus program, or your power supply is a dud. You should also stress test your ram.

Bios and drivers are all up to date, haven't tried stress testing the ram so thank you for that advice, will do. And yeah it could also be some software based thing but that's a whole different story then and a lot harder to track down but i'll keep an eye out for anything unusual.
