Random PC shutdowns
I know, this is not a tech support Forum, but I've tried other places, and since there seem to be some smart people here, I just thought, I'd ask:
My Girlfriend ordered a new PC, and it arrived last week.
Intel i5 2500k
Geforce GTX 570
Windows 7 Home Premium
2 Weeks before, I ordered the same model and I have no problems at all.
Everything looked ok at first. She started to play Skyrim, but after 2 Days, random shutdowns started to appear. It happens sometimes after 15 minutes, sometimes after 1 hour. There is no bluescreen or somethings like that, the PC just shuts down and reboots.
We have checked the temperatures during the game, and while running a benchmark, but everything was ok and all coolers are working. Even after 3 hours, no benchmark could produce a shutdown. We started to think that it would be a problem with the Game, but after Installing MassEffect1, it happended again, after about 45 minutes.
We updated all drivers, and I would also not think, that it is the Powersupply, as it only happens during games...
Sooo, if anyone has a smart Idea, I would be happy to try it ;)
Contrary to popular opinion, the plural of 'anecdote' is not 'fact'.
All generalizations are false.
