Windows 7: Random Restart and Hang

20 Aug 2012   #1

Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
Random Restart and Hang

I bought a FSP Aurum 600w today. I finally replaced my generic power supply after using it for 2 years. Now, I just want to know how can I test if my PSU is good? I mean, I left my PC downloading something but when I came home, it hung again. I thought changing the power supply would fix the problem. I also changed my RAM sticks to RipJaws which went okay. The BSODs were gone. Now I just need to solve the unnecessary hanging when I leave it overnight while downloading.

I thought that when I replace my PSU with a new one, it will "fix" the restarting and hanging thing because my former PSU was just a generic one and they said it's not good and it doesn't last for over a year so I thought that was the cause of problem. Because my PC will restart as if it lost power for 1 sec then it will return again.

I replaced my RAM months ago, and the BSODs stopped. I only need to know why my PC is restarting out of nowhere or why is it hanging suddenly when I'm just downloading. Any guesses?

Random hang with no specific no error.
Hello, I am having a problem that doesn't have any pattern, sometime my PC will run fine for 24 hours, but some other time it will hang and need a reset. No BSOD, no errors, no any error event in the events logs. How do I go debugging this one? Thanks for your support.
