Ive been searching everywhere and cant find a solution to my problem..
The problem is, when playing some games, not all, my pc shuts itself down and restarts..
I can play Crysis Wars, Crysis 2 and the BF3 beta for as long as I want with no probs, but as soon as I try BFBC2 or COD4MW all hell breaks loose.
If I dont play the "bad" games for a long time (weeks-months) I can play for a few hours before it dies but once it reboots once i cant even play for 5 mins before it reboots again.
Firstly I dont think its a heat problem..
I have ran stress tests with FurMark, Prime95, and Memtest all at once for just over an hour and a half and had no probs at all, the CPU temp reached 90-91c and the GPU topped at 84c with everything maxed out.
I have the latest NVIDIA beta driver installed (the one needed for BF3) and have tried the previous driver with no difference.
My PC is:
Motherboard - Gigabyte EX58-UD3R Rev1.6
CPU - Intel Core i7-930 2.8GHz
GPU - Gigabyte GTX260 896MB GDDR3
PSU - Hytec Forte 1000 watt
RAM - 6GB Kingston
HDD - 500GB
Logitech G19 Keyboard
Logitech G700 Mouse
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
My monitors are a 19"Samsung SyncMaster 931BW and an old 15"hp1502 (I use the second for multi-tasking for work)
This is really starting to annoy me, I cant even finish the campaign on BFBC2.
Oh and I have disabled the auto restart on fail for Windows and I dont get any BSOD, I also checked the event viewer and the only warnings I have are:
The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device Root\SIDESHOW\0001.
and the critical error for kernel-power saying "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."
