Im having some issues with a new build I just did and need some help on what could be causing this issue.

When doing random things, changing a setting, surfing a web page, ect, the pc will lose video, act like its shutting down and lock up. When rebooting it always comes up with the error "windows failed to shutdown properly". It does this fairly often.

At other times it will get a blue screen (not the windows blue screen of death, but a solid blue screen) and lock up moments after.

Again, it does this on any random thing I do with the computer, not one particular thing causes it.

This morning when booting up I had an issue with getting the computer to boot into windows. Rebooted, and got the error, windows failed to start properly.

I tried flashing the bios to the newest version. And tried a different video card. Neither helped the issue.

This is what the build consists of:
ECS A790GXM-AD3 motherboard
AMD Phenom 2 X4 965 Black Edition Deneb processor
2 - Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1333 2GB memory sticks
1 - XFX Radeon 5770 HD-577A-ZNFC video card
GELID CPU cooler
Xigmatek NRP-MC751 750W power supply
WD Raptor 80g 10k rpm sata drive
WD 1tb 7200 rpm drive

  1. Based on your symptoms, I'm thinking it's a power problem. Can you try another power supply if you can?
