Windows 7: PC auto restart when playing high-end games (No BSOD)

PC auto restart when playing high-end games (No BSOD)

Hi all,

I have recently upgraded my GPU from AMD HD 7750 to NVIDIA Geforce GTX 750 Ti (with dual fans).

I tend to face issue when playing higher end games. The game starts out fine usually but then auto restart after a while. Sometimes, there is no signal to my monitor instead.

Before, I have no issue playing Witcher 2 at medium settings but started facing this problem when trying out Lords of the Fallen, even at low settings.

My idle temperature of my GPU is around 43C while during gaming, the highest it reached is 70C.
CPU wise, idle is around 35C while gaming is 60C (max).

My desktop PC is customized build with specs:
Windows 7 SP1 64-bit
Intel Core i3 CPU 530 @2.93 GHz
NVIDIA Geforce GTX 750 Ti
Motherboard: GIGABYTE H55M-S2
PSU: PowerWide ATX-430W
Ram:4GB Kingtson Ram KVR13N9S8/4 x2

Any advice? Thanks!

Did you uninstall all of the AMD components and drivers before removing the HD7750 and installing the GTX750Ti?

Could be the PSU PCI-e rail to got weak for the overall system when it is loaded in game or the vid card to overheat. But the Specs states Graphics Card Power (W): 60W for Minimum System Power Requirement 300W, and max in game should be around 66W.

I would check if the thermal paste is still fresh if you have a second hand video card and the PCI-e rail well plugged in..

I just replaced the thermal paste as well as clear out all the dust but yet the problem still persist. Connection is secured too. My previous graphic card is faulty so I doubt I can find a second hand video card to test.

Yup! I have been using this particular PSU model for my rig since many years ago. Could the PSU be failing?

Possibly. Can you check in the BIOS for the values of the 3.3V, 5V and 12V and report back with them.

I managed to get a PSU from my friend to test it out and so far I have not faced any issue! I think its my PSU that is giving me problem. Thank you for your help!

Good news. If you are going to replace your PSU let us know, we can help you make an informed choice. Cheaping out on a PSU is never a good idea as it's one of the most important components of any PC, install a good one and you'll be set for years.
