Windows 7: Repeated crashes while playing any game with no BSOD

Direct X is part of Windows now so I can't uninstall it but I double checked that everything is up to date.

Update:

PC never crashed while running the GPU test. Topped out at 86C and fan speed was only 61%.

I decided to format again and do a fresh install with nothing but the basics. Mouse, KB, video drivers, and Windows Updates. Stored a game on another HDD and booted from there. PC still restarts after 5 - 60 minutes of gaming. It even restarted while running Netflix.

I still have yet to get a BSOD even with auto restart turned off.

I looked though the Event log on the fresh install and it still the same Event IDs as before. I looked under windows logs > system and found:

Event ID 41

I also broke down the PC and rebuilt it to make sure everything was seated properly.


I'm out of ideas accept to start buying new pieces and see if it will work.

Any direction would be very much appreciated.

Cheers,

If it is a reboot without BSOD, looks like a power problem. Did you have the BSODs before replacing the PSU? Just to make sure, how about running off your onboard graphics and try to play a game (very low quality and maybe less than 20fps, but...) for a while. Power draw will be little and the chances are if there is a problem with the PSU, it won't be loaded enough to crash the PC. Furmark is not a good stresstester for post GT400 cards unless u somehow manage to disable throttling.

For troubleshooting purposes are you prepared to give up Gaming for a period of time?

I can't game right now anyways so I don't have anything to lose. I just want to play games and not think "I wonder if what I did worked...*PC crashes*"

I'll try that out and post back the results.

Update:

I was doing some reading about my PSU and my GPU because it still feels like a power issue. The minimum requirements for my GPU are 550W at 38AMPs on the 12v (sorry I have no idea what I'm talking about when it comes to electricity). The 12v on my current PSU(1000W) is 40AMP Maximum. I'm not sure but it sounds like I need a new PSU. Is a two AMP buffer enough?

If the GPU is the only thing on the 12v rail no. 2 amps is an extra 5% and your gpu cant use more than rated unless you are overclocking.

Update:

I put in an old 9800GTX+ GPU and the restarts still happen with EventID 41 and 6008. Still no BSOD.

Win 7 and modern mobo's are very memory sensitive. The above should not make a difference but I have seen Identical memory from the same mfr, with the same specs, but not purchased at the same time, cause instability.
