Troubleshooting: Built PC

As of late I've been having trouble with my built PC. Randomly, the computer will shut down. First, the monitor goes black and says that there is no VGA connection, next the computer shuts off and reboots. After that, I open up the reliability report and the computer has no record of anything going wrong, but this puppy pops up:



The odd part is, is that no blue screen occurs, but that is what the error's event name is!

System Specs:

OS: Win7 Professional
CPU: Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core
Mobo: ASUS P7P55D PRO LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3500418AS 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
PSU: CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
GPU: Nvidia GTX 460

time to troubleshoot!

Thanks!

    Check the ram in the bios, Volts , Timmings, and speed. Run a memetest over night. If you are OCing set the system back to stock.

    Check for any wires that might not be fit tight.

    Make sure your MOBO BI0s is up to date, and you have the latest drivers for it.
    Make sure windows is up to date.
    GPU, MOUSE, KB drivers are up to date and compatable for windows 7 ?

    Sometimes i seen this when i was OCing and hade ( sleep mode on ) try turning off sleep mode if its on.

    Check the system for heat issues and also for any virus.


    Hope this helps

  5. When I run memetest86+ it takes about 3 seconds.

    I have the iso saved to a disk, and I change the boot priority to run the disk, and it goes very quickly. Am I doing something wrong?

    Let it run over night 9 to 12 hours, you should beable to run it for days on end without problems. If your ram has errors after 9 to 12 hours and you have your ram set to the right VOLTS, SPEED, and TIMMINGS and your ram is on your MOBOs aproved ram list then RMA the ram.
