Windows 7: Shutdowns/BSODs happening seemingly at random.

Shutdowns/BSODs happening seemingly at random.

My computer just randomly shuts itself off, then turns back on as if it's rebooting, but nothing happens. This has happened while playing League of Legends/WoW, also while doing random things such as surfing the net, watching youtube, and sometimes rarely on start up.

It has only a couple times gone to a blue screen. It's driving me nuts trying to figure this out. The things i've done so far include...


- Updating any and all driver directly from their respective manufacturers.
- Updating the BIOS
- Running MemTest over-night for about 12 hours which brought back zero errors.
- Ran registry cleaning programs
- Defragged/Uninstalled any and all non-essential programs.
- Air-dusted the CPU
- Ran tempature tracking software to see if it was the GPU or something else overheating, the highest my GPU reading got was 40c while running a game maxed out.


Basically i'm at a loss. All thats left is maybe something with the power source/voltages, but I have no idea what things should be set at or how to change them so I haven't really messed with any of that.

Just crashed after about 5 minutes of having WoW open, temp on my GPU was 43 c. I had ran a Furmark test prior to that where it ended up crashing at 70 c. I know 70 c isn't ideal per se, but even that isn't that high.

Is there any particular reason my post seems to be going on ignored? It's been 36 hours now and i've seen every post here recieve some sort of attention, including posts that were put up well after mine. My cpu is still crashing randomly, i've posted the required zip from the get go...is there something i'm missing?

Getting BSODs at random, but it seems as though most of the time it's because I alt tab into or out of a full screen program. This might of course be confirmation bias. Got this when I logged back on, maybe it can help: BCCode: 3b BCP1: 00000000C0000005 BCP2: FFFFF96000164283 ...
