    Pc restarts help !

    by olol7400 ·


    Hey, just joined this in hopes someone can help me. To preface the post here are my specs : 6700xt, 5600, b550m pro vdh wifi, tx850m –

    ever since i built my pc i have been getting restarts when opening almost any game, i have managed to make a few old titles like csgo & tf2 working by lowering the power limit & the gpu clock, on other games a little more intensive lowering power limit and clock simply turns an instant restart into 20 minutes then restart . Im not getting bluescreens, i just get the restart on its own – nothing notable in event viewer ( just kernel power 41) and before i finish ill add all parts were bought new & i have already reinstalled windows and ddu drivers, also psu supplies full 12 & 5v

    thanks, ill do my best to answer any questions

      Could be insufficient cooling of CPU or graphic card. Does Tetris still work?

          Yes, if you replace everything, you have a new PC and that might be fine. Start with the things you suspect most.

          Or buy a complete new gaming PC with 1 or 2 years of warranty. Problem solved. But i don’t think that’s your favorite solution.

      I wouldn’t write off temperatures.

      You can guess what we find in PCs at the shop when the owner tells us it’s not temperatures related.
      We’ve seen PCs that do this even when all the temps look good. There’s no clue yet in your discussion but I’d still try it with the case cover off and a fan pointed at the open PC for a test run.

      Also, see if something like FURMARK can make it happen on demand.

      Furmark is one of my favs for stress testing.

      Since it reboots pretty quickly (Furmark in stock form doesn’t run very long) I’d do the case cover off fan test and redo the heatsink compound.
      With the cover off I can also see if the fans are working.
      Some models power down when temps go high too fast which a temp monitor can’t check. And after reboot the chip/cpu/gpu could have cooled down so you can’t find it with temp reports.

      Sorry but there’s no other clue to follow yet.

      it sounds like you might be experiencing an issue with your power supply

      some possible cause for the restart could be:
      1.insufficient power : your power supply must not be providing enough power to your gpu, causing it to crash and restart.
      2. overheating : your gpu must be overheating causing it to crash or restart. this could be caused by a lack of proper cooling or by a blockage of the gpu’s cooling system
      3.try using a different power supply or other hardware component. if you suspect that the problem is caused by the faulty power supply or other hardware component, try replacing it with a known good one to see if the problem is solved.
      4. try to run a stress test on your system using a software such as prime95 or furmark to identify if there is any problem with your system.

      Click on the Windows Start icon.
      Press and hold the left Shift key on your keyboard.
      Click on the Power icon and then select Restart, while keep holding the Shift key.
      Finally, release the Shift key as soon as the system begins to restart. The system will restart in the safe mode.
