Ok, so, got myself a new gaming setup built about a week or so ago, and as of the last couple days I've been running into problems with it. I notice it most when I'm playing any games, but, it's done this before just surfing online. While playing my screen will go black and then the sound that was playing will just skip and loop for a couple of seconds before the computer restarts itself. I've tried reseating the RAM and the Graphics Card and neither have helped.


Setup is
Asus P6X58D-E Motherboard
Corsair hx1000w Power Supply
nVidia GeForce GTX570
6gb ddr3 1600mhz crucial ballistix
Ocz Vertex 3 sata 60GB SSD
Micro Center 60GB SSD
Seagate Barracuda 2 TB Drive


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Overclocking the graphics card can cause this. You can also see if there is an update from nVidia.

I don't have the graphics card overclocked and I've made sure all drivers ar eup to date so neither of those things should be causing it.

Many things can cause this. Power Supply, heat issues, bad RAM, bad CPU, bad video card, just about anything. Need to test things out a bit.

Try running with only a few or even one stick of RAM at a time, see what happens. Run a benchmark to stress the system see what causes it to crash. Prime95 is good to test RAM and CPU as well as any issues with heat with the CPU. 3DMark is good to test the video card.
