Random restart

Ok this is confusing me I recently built a new machine, And I experienced random restarts in windows 7 pro 64 bit. I installed windows xp 64 bit corporate and it went away for a month or so now there happening in this operating system too. It only happens when I play flash games on facebook or myspace and theres no event errors at all? Please help all info would be greatly appriciated. I've read countless forum post on this issue with no help! My machine is as follows.

CPU: Phenom II x4 965
MOBO: biostar 790gx a+3 5.x
Memory: Crucial Ballistix 8gb (4x2gb) ddr3 PC312800 1600mhz
GPU: HIS H567Q1G Radeon HD 5670 (Redwood) IceQ 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card w/ATI Eyefinity
HD: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
PSU: A-Top SUPER CHARGE ATP-AP550B 550W ATX12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply

The only other thing I can add is that I took out my GPU and I'm running on my onboard hd300 and its went away for now! But its only been today! Any help would be greatly appriciated!

    Its looks like it could be your PSU. Thats not a good brand at all, even if you were only running a 5670.
  2. Ok instant update It did it again, I was playing a flash game and right clicked, instead of settings i accidentally click global settings, it opened a new window and the whole machine locked up, then screen went black to power save mode (monitor) but i could still here the game, I reset manually then went into bios and changed the onboard from auto to 512. Restarted wnet to the same game and it crashed like 2 sec in?
  3. PSU has the 2 12v rails I need for the processor though? Its still not enough? That sucks its brand new!
  4. I have to say Helltech is right on this one. I'm normally up to date on what brands are good and bad. I never even herd of this one, lets just put it that way.

    What kind of psu brand you may ask....? Well i would have to say i do like corsair, maybe a xfx brand. You can never go wrong with xfx.
  5. I found this in event viewer if it helps, not at the time of crash though, ATICDSDR.sys blocked from loading due to incompatibility. and atiicdx
  6. atiicdxx.s as well

    Did you have your GPU in this time?
  8. no its still out
  9. This sounds exactly like a power supply issue, however if that's removed I'm not sure what it could be.

    I speculate on these theory's.

    Bad PSU still.
    Bad motherboard, Unlikely but possible.
    Corrupt OS.

    Replace The PSU first, and then if it still happens reinstall windows. If it continues I say it seems like a motherboard issue.
  10. The mobo is brand new, I just ordered a 5870 which I though it was my psu, so I guess I'll get a psu, I need on with a 8 pin 12v rail though which one should do for my mobo and new graphics card?
  11. I Suggest a OCZ 550w Fatal1ty Modular PSU, It cost's 64.99 before rebates.

    It will have enough power for all your requirements PLUS it includes a modular cabling system that should help with case airflow.
  12. my new 5870 also has 2 6 pin connectors as well!
