Pc randomly shuts down.

Go to solution Solved by Danyboy1738,

Solved: I think it was just the drive I was running off of. Drive 1 had windows 7 Ultimate on it, and drive 2 had w10 on it so i switched to that and so far it hasn't died during the reset.

My pc randomly shuts down, after a period of time, and then doesn't want to read the hdd or display anything, until i remove and reinstall the gpu.

Edit: gpu doesn't change anything now

 

Specs:

Motherboard: Intel Desktop Motherboard DQ57TM

CPU: i5 650

GPU: XFX HD Radeon 4650 Dual DVI 1GB DDR2

RAM: 8GB DDR3

HDD: x2 500GB

PSU: Unknown

Display Cable: DVI to HDMI 1.9m

Display: 1080p, 60Hz, TV

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate

Holy crap this pc has alot of problems, even worse then my p5q when its dirty and starts malfunctioning

 

Tbh at this point id suggest dunking/spraying the entire mb with 99% isopropyl alcohol (socket, slots like ram, power, etc) then cleaning the pads of the cpu and the connector of the gpu

I know but it was free so I didn't expect much from it, but this is below expectations. I was hoping to just turn it on, wipe it, then start afresh but this thing says otherwise. I have to go through all of the methods, reseating everything and wiggling cables just for it to turn on for 5mins and then proceed to die.

Its likely the "unknown" psu, probably should try to find and post its specs.

 

But yeah, with such a system it could be anything literally.

When kind of stuff happens I really recommend using the Windows Event viewer to narrow things down.
