I need some help. I just got through building a new computer. My problem is my computer will randomly restart. No BSOD, or freezes. Though it has frozen once. It simply shuts off and then reboots. This mostly occurs when I try to play games such as Starcraft 2, however it has occured several times while watching videos and just browsing the web.


Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

AMD Phenom II X6 1100t
Asus M5A95 EVO
G.Skill Ripjaws 4x2gig
Corsair TX650
XFX Radeon 4650
Western Digital 120GB

Alright the graphics card and the HD are salvaged from my last build.

Here is some of the event data for the crash

<Provider Name="Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power" Guid="{331C3B3A-2005-44C2-AC5E-77220C37D6B4}" />

<Data Name="BugcheckParameter3">0x0</Data>
<Data Name="BugcheckParameter4">0x0</Data>
<Data Name="SleepInProgress">false</Data>
<Data Name="PowerButtonTimestamp">0</Data>

This has been driving me mad and any help would be greatly appreciated. I have tried many things. I have run memtest, prime95, 3dmark vantage. None of these cause reboots. I have tried taking out a stick of RAM and swapping still get reboots. I have tried installing all possible drivers directly from manufacturer websites. I have tried disabling audio drivers. I'm not sure what else I can do to isolate this problem.

Please help.

take one out and test system .. then swap if no problems

after that you may have to do that with the rest of your hardware ... maybe PSU is acting like a lil beeeyaaaaatch
