Shut Down Problem

Hello,

I'm new here and sorry if i post question in wrong section. I just install my PC and then when i run the game with high graphics like darksider, CoJ, The Witcher etc its shut down by it self without process. Like lost power. Is it my graphic card problem, MB, PSU or another component?

How do i check if one of my hardware was broken? At now all is running and functioning.

I use, HD 5500 & HD 4500 for dual monitor.

My RAM is 8GB Corsair Vengeance.

Really appreciated the solutions.

Thanks,

  1. bad PSU or CPU overheating is usually the culprit. Check your temps.
    What is your PSU model?
  2. And why are you using two cards for dual monitors? A single HD 5500 can handle two monitors there is no need really to use two cards for just two monitors.

    Because i need 2 different working display. Not joining screen to bigger display.

    500W Simbadda, if its overheat the PC should be down when reach specific temperature right? But this problem only exist when i playing game. Before i use Win 8 pro 64, when i play some music its shut down too. Im back to 7, music is Ok but game make problem.

    That makes plenty of sense because the system heats up when under more load.

    Yeah not a good design. Want to bring corsair 800 or 1000 W later.

    Ok, any suggestion or software for checking hardware failure or almost broken hardware? Not just an diagnostic report??

    Or should i change the Processor, GPU or something?? I have an old PC with spec I3, 2GB DDR2 RAM just standard specs with not famous brand. But its never give lost power problem like this. And my current CPU Processor is AMD FX 4100 Quad.
  7. I suggest you try speedfan to check your temperatures.
