Windows 7: New Build Random Shut downs No BSOD

New Build Random Shut downs No BSOD

Hey Just wondering if anyone would be able to help me

I've been having some random shut downs with the following build which is only about a month and a half old the gtx 570 is only a few days old and since then the problems have gotten worse.

Intel Core i7 930 at stock with stock cooler
Corsair XSP 1600MHZ 6g ram
PNY gtx 570
Gigaybyte GA-X58-USB3
FSP Everest 1010W psu
1tb Samsung HD103SJ (system Drive)
750gb Seagate Baracuda (secondary storage disk)
I had left the pc down to my local pc store and they thought my windows install was corrupted, they couldn't replicate the same random restarting problem( but they did c my install restarting when booting into windows ) and did a fresh install of windows 7 professional x64 onto my drive.

The pc worked fine for most of December but as of the 4th of Jan I had to reinstall windows and since then I've been getting alot of random restarts with event 41 in my event logs.

The problem seems to worsen when ever I try and play Crysis, the system usually shuts down at the intial game loading screen and If I can get into game it plays fine.

Could it be my DVD drive is corrupting the install and causing problems since its a burned DVD? It also makes a clicking noise when loading programs off UBCD as well as when I was installing Crysis?

Info about my copy of windows 7

Professional x64
Burned Disk acquired from my universitys MSDN:AA website.

I've included my reports as stated in the FAQ.

I'm really stumped on this I hope someone can make sense of my logs and reports.

Thanks ALOT.

Hiya pal and welcome to the forums

First thing to check is that you have the latest Drivers for your GFX card GTX 570 Nvidia 64 bit drivers

Next thing to check is your PSU, although it is more than adequate for your system and GPU it could be faulty.

Next would be your temperatures .... Check your CPU Free CPU temp checker and GPU temperatures Free GPU temp checker.

And you might want to also check your memory sticks (try them 1 slot at a time) in between tests.

If you could give us some feedback on this we might be able to narrow down your problems.

I would recommend running a diagnostic to first test your optical drive.

Would you mind explaining how i do that? Never ran a diag on an optical drive before

My gpu temps are about 76C max when playing crysis and fan speed goes up to around 56% according to msi after burner.

Memory sticks all passed a 4 hour run in memtest.

How would i test my psu? The only other psu I have access too is a corsair 550w psu which I dont think would be powerful enough to run the system?

And drivers should be up the correct version as I installed them from the win 7 x64 download from their site

just a quick bump to see if anyone knows if the corsair 550w psu would be able to run my system?

Yep the 550W is sufficient for testing purposes.
