My PC gets a black screen (for 5 sec. )when I start a game and then restarts without any warning. In the previous time , every game works fine , I had no issues. Suddenly , a month ago , this problem is occuring. My graphic drivers are update , Bios is update , everything updated. 3-4 days ago I reinstalled Windows 8.1 on my pc and reinstalled my graphic drivers but the problem is still occuring.

My computer specs:
Windows 8.1 Pro
Nvidia Geforce GTX 650
1 TB WD Desktop Harddisk
Intel Core i5 3rd Generation (3570)
Cooler Master Thunder 500 Watt PSU
Intel Desktop Board DH77KC

When I run approximately ANY Benchmark Test using FurMark same problem is occuring , my computer restarts from the starting all of a sudden. Cant even check temperature when I start a game because it restarts all of a sudden very quickly.

Please HELP! Please...........:(

If you consider the problem happens when putting the graphics card under say sort of load causes the system to crash
and reset, then it points to a power related problem from the PSU.

Or some power problem related to the motherboard it`s self.
The most common is the PSU, depending on its age and use. they become weaker less stable and efficient.
Faults can start to creep up like that due to the age of them.
The more taxed the PSU is, the shorter the life.
If slightly underrated also.

Test your ram with memtest to see if its not memory related. To check heat temp you can use HWiNFO64, you can turn the logging on, so when your PC restart you can check the log to see the temp to make sure its not heat problems.

If there's nothing wrong with those two, then try testing with a different psu. Even though its quite new, it might still be faulty.
I had a similar problem, and it was because of a faulty psu and I rma the psu.

Also check the psu cables make sure its attached correctly to other component, and the electricity from the wall jack to the psu, make sure the psu can pull the power it needs. I used to had a problem when I forgot that my voltage regulator can only give 500w when my psu need 600w.
