Sudden shut down windows 7

Hi there,

I am having problems with my pc shutting down randomly while running various games. I have ran memory diagnostics and no problem was recorded.

This is happening completely randomly... Maybe once a fortnight but then other times it can happen every time I try to run a game!

It has never happened whilst using other program's or surfing the net, thus I thought it might have been memory problem.

Any help would be much appreciated

  1. Try updating the graphics drivers, it could also be the power supply failing to provide enough power.
  2. I have already updated the graphics drivers, still to avail.

    I am currently sourcing a 750w power supply from your advise. Hopefully that will fix the problem.

    Thanks for the reply
