Windows 7: Reboots after a few seconds.....

13 May 2013   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Reboots after a few seconds.....


I'll make this as brief as possible.

i7-3770K @ 3.50GHz (BCLK 100MHz)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti (EVGA)
Win 7 Home Premium (64-bit)

The system was built to order and is serving its purpose.

Using Easy Tune6 Build, it was guaranteed a stable OC of 4.18 GHz
BCLK 102MHz. This was bench tested for 24 hrs.

I'll not deny using OC but to be honest, I see some but not a great deal of difference during gaming.

My cooling fans are quiet so I have them running at a permanent 80% even when not OC'ing or gaming.
During gaming, I use EVGA Precision X to keep the card fan at a permanent 70% - 80%.


OC for gaming...Play... Then shut down for the night.

Restart PC the following day...Still in OC mode...PC will start then shut down within a few seconds...Reboot within a few seconds and run fine all night...Still in OC mode.

The Action Centre detects a Video Hardware error.

Problem: Video Hardware error

Can someone shine some light on this please.

I appreciate your time.
