My PC resets himself without warnings :O

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello there people. So ive got the new Shadow of War game, and GeForce Experience wanted me to install a new driver, so I did.

Today I was playing some SoW, and suddenly my PC shut itself down, and auto rebooted himself, when the boot was over it started a Windows Update so I was thinking maybe Windows is stupid so it updates me with no warning. But this reset autoboot problem is still going on, even on other games like League of Legends (my resolution got wired, changed it back and it did that again). Im not sure if its my PSU or my GPU causing this problem, and I dont know if there is any fix to this that I can do in order to stop this madness. Do note that my PC didnt do that thing when im on the web, only when im gaming. Someone knows this problem and knows how to take care of that? Thanks :D

Try installing the older driver to see if that fixes the problem. Then you can be sure it's a driver problem and not a hardware problem.


I edit my posts a lot.

you could also try to monitor temp's. this sounds like an automatic shutdown from overheating.

I did monitored my temps, nothing went above 58C' in any part of the system.

Windows 10 mysteries. Probably some driver that is causing that POS software to crap it's pants and reboot.

Good luck finding it, took me months to find it, more months to try and fix it but eventually just went back to windows 7 :)

I've seen so many of these posts. Sometimes it's the Nvidia driver, sometimes it's even the Blue Yeti mic driver. Something happened with the creator update that just threw a wrench in the works with drivers.

I can agree that since the creator update im getting more issues then before. About the drivers, the only driver ive updated is the GPU one so im guessing that is the problem.

you could try rewmoving the geforce driver fully with a program called Display Driver Uninstaller, DDU for short. and then reinstalling the driver.

You also had a windows update that rolled. Maybe roll back on drivers that you...oh wait you can't, windows10 doesn't let you pick and choose updates!.

Ive went to the Nvidia website and installed the drivers again manually. I just need to test if its fixed now.

*UPDATE* *FIXED*

Well a friend of mine @KermitFTW suggested to do a "load default" from the bios, turns out that fixed the problem. Kermit is a god.

You're using an accountant as a personal computer? Or did you see your PC as a guy like some rally drivers refer to their cars as "she". 

 

Dude: That's one hot car!

Other dude: Yeah, she is! She's got no exhaust pipes!
