Hello everyone, I need some advice on what I think is a power supply problem.
I recently upgraded from an Athlon II 250 to a Phenom II 1090T, and also upgraded my RAM from 4GB to 8GB, and ever since my computer has randomly crashed. Some days it wont even boot, others it can go 5-6 hours on a game and be fine, but it always crashes in the end.
I know my power supply isnt the best quality (Powercolor 650W 80 Plus) so im guessing it may be that. I just need confirmation before I start sending parts back. Here are the full specs of the computer. Thanks in advance.
I thought it may have been a RAM issue, so i ran memtest from a boot cd. 3 passes with no errors.
Its rarely a bluescreen crash, the computer would either just lock up doing something as simple as opening a program, or refuse to boot into the BIOS.
I should have probably mentioned I've tried reinstalling windows 7. The components are no more than 6 months old and I haven't been anywhere near overclocking yet so all settings are at stock ( i even put them all in manually just in case).
