Windows 7: Full reboots during any games

Full reboots during any games

Hi,

Hope someone can help because im lost on this one

I recently built an Ivybridge machine specs to follow, was working fine for a few days, then all of a sudden started getting random reboots but only during games, pc runs fine normally, run a game and then it just decides to reboot.

I dont get any blue screens at all and ive not changed any bios settings from defaults either.

Also i formatted the hard drive and fresh installed windows 7 as part of the install.

The only thing in the Event Viewer is a Kernel Power error but from what ive read up thats just a basic error it throws up when it cant find anything specific.

Powercool 650W PSU
ASRock Z77 Pro4 Motherboard (tested 2 identical motherboards)
Intel I5 3570K (Ivybridge)
16Gb Corsair Vengeance LP Ram
EVGA Nvidia 560 GT
Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB Sata2 HDD (couldnt afford to replace that at present)

Now ive ran FuMark for 15mins with the Xtreme Burn in enabled, and it was absolutely fine, GPU load was 99% for 15 mins, highest temp it got to was 79c.

Ran memtest for a few hours, all passed ok

Any help is appreciated

Check:

C:\Windows\Minidump

You can change the C:\ partition letter for the letter of the partition in which you installed Windows 7 on.

Other than the crash dumps only, the SF Diag tool output gives us a lot of information that is helpful to understand your system and the current situation. Such as MSINFO.nfo file, even log etc a lot of information which we need to say anything helpful to you.

You have a crash or not, run the SF Diag too, press the grab all button, and upload the output.

Display Fusion is a piece of software used to enable certain features on multimonitor set ups

I was under the impression iexplore was internet explorer

Did you download Display Fusion from Binary Fortress as suggested within the link?

iexplore.exe is Internet Explorer, as you have rightly just said; please could perform a full scan of your system with MSE to check for any malicious programs or hidden processes which may be causing a reboot.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Run the System File Checker too, and if any corrupted files or other problems are found, then keep running the program 3 separate times with a reboot in between.
