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.

Startup time from 75 seconds to 165 seconds. What is wrong?

RC hangs ~every 4 seconds for about 2-3 seconds
Pretty much the title here. Except sometimes it will work just fine if I'm not doing too much. The startup also hangs after the splash logo to the login screen for about 10 seconds. In build 7000, there was no lag at all. Any ideas? Driver suggestions? Not sure.... Thanks!
