My New Build Shutting-Off Randomly

I hear the beep, and then in few seconds, before one saves and exits in BIOS, shuts off on its own. permalinkembedsaveparentgive gold[–]x3tripleace3x 8 points9 points10 points 2 years ago*(3 children)Might be bad RAM. I tried turning it on and the front power led was on. If you are able to see your shutdown by leaving this test running, you know it's the PSU, but you are testing it under very little load, it's a bit unlikely

What PSu do you have? The stick has a lot of numbers on it, the only ones that make sense to me are clock: 1600mhzvoltage: 1.50Vtiming i think: 9-9-9-24also:CM212GX3M3A1600C9829491114004082which must be part/model numbers I guess. It's the same with my AM3 motherboard and FX-8350 which used the AM3+ socket. How to invoke a program in Windows from command prompt?

This could be a dozen things, I would disconnect everything and re-connect before I said hardware failure, you could just have a component not plugged in all the way like your Are these random shutdowns when the computer is under significant load?

I spent about $2,000 on the entire build, so it's pretty nice and is supposed to be able to handle a ton of work and it's not currently, any ideas?

If you didn't, and instead moved the drive from another PC, you very likely have a driver conflict somewhere and it could easily cause these problems. Sorry, there was a problem flagging this post. If it is selected to [Power On] then it is unlikely that PSU or input power is the cause of the problem because your PC would try to power back on Also, run a memory test like MemTest86 permalinkembedsavegive gold[–]mushuku 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago(0 children)there has been a windows 8 update yesterday that seems to be causing blue screens.

  • If this is an older 3 channel kit then most likely the ram that you have is rated at 2.0v.
  • Would it be wise to run something like Google's stressapptest to test it one last time? djscribblesSep 4, 2012, 8:17 PM That couldn't hurt, but I usually see Prime95 and MemTest86
  • Add the latest manufacture drivers and any software needed to test for your error.
  • Q: How can I test my power supply?A: You can easily test a power supply for functionality with a simple paperclip.
  • IF...
  • What exactly did you replace?
  • If the memory is OK, then you can boot into your OS and check out your voltage levels.
  • The Cool master fan i am using doesnt fix the issue, My guess is that the MOBO could be defective, My PSU is not giving out enough watts or its defective.

A poorly installed CPU fan would probably go over 70 degrees and I doubt the machine could run more than ~20 minutes. –P.Brian.Mackey May 26 '11 at 18:21 I Had this happen to me a couple months ago, good thing g.skill has lifetime warranties. they did not come with the computer (obviously) i upgraded them on my HP but since i was limited on upgradeing my HP i decided to take those parts out and weblink and make sure the slots are pushed down all the way for the pci-e and ram and even the power cables are all the way ini hope you get it working

You might try getting some spacers to raise it slightly higher just as a test.

Thanks for all the responses. I then got the error message from Asus saying that it was due to the Asus anti-surge protection because power surges had been detected. If that won't help, chances are that your motherboard is overheating and that could be maybe also helped by proper settings. VAPCMD.

Computer randomly shuts off and wont turn back on unless unplugged (sometimes) help! Had the same problem, a few weeks later two sticks of ram kicked the bucket. shumail34May 1, 2013, 8:59 PM Good news, whilst taking out the RAM, I disconnected and reconnected the main power cables and now it seems towork fine Thanks for all your help check over here Alas it was not a power-off, but a "sleep" button.The default in my BIOS was set wrong for sleep and it was turning the machine off (or something) instead of putting
