I had built a computer about 2 years ago. When I first was building it, it would turn off randomly when I tried to use it. After replacing both the PSU and the video card, I finally got the machine to work.
It had worked for about 2 years, and I am now being faced with the same problem from when I initially built it.
The specs are as follows:
CPU: Intel Quad Core 6600
Ram: OCZ Dual Channel Platinum 4GB PC8800 DDR2 1100MHz Memory - 2x2048MB
MOBO: XFX nForce 680i 3-Way SLI Motherboard -
PSU: XION Power Real 1000W ATX Power Supply
Video Card: Nvidia's GeForce 8800 GT
So far what I have tried:
- Replacing the Ram with different Ram
- Replacing the Video Card with a different card
- Replacing the PSU with a different one
- Turning computer on with just the mobo, psu, cpu, and ram
I checked for overheating and it's probably not it:
CPU Temp: 27 degrees celsius
Case Temp: 25 degrees celsius
Video Card Temp: 45 degrees celsius
Any other suggestions on what it may be?
The computer will turn on, sometimes it will turn off right away, sometimes it will stay on for 30 seconds to a minute, sometimes it will let windows load and shut down, and sometimes it will load windows and run for 5-10 minutes.
