Hello, I've been having problems recently with my computer: When I'm playing a video game the system shuts down without warning and only ever so often a BSOD occurs. It used to be restricted to Civ V but now it happens with Diablo III and LoL as well. I ran Ccleaner and there are no registry errors or missed updates. Temperatures appear to be normal as well (though the GPU keeps around 51 Celsius on idle even in a 20 degrees environment)
after browsing through the forums a bit I suspect the problem could be my Advance TX-750W PSU. Running Speccy and HDMonitor shows no voltages out of the ordinary save for the -12V, which stays around -8 when idle. Could that be the problem? I could try another PSU but I don't have one ready, nor does do I have friends who could spare one easily, and I'm on a tight budget without income this summer.
I'll post specs and a Dxdaig below. I'm running a custom system (the first I ever built myself) but I admit I'm far from being any good at computer tech.
-Advance - mid tower - no PSU - NeoXblade - 8813B - Black
-MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
-AMD Phenom II X2 550
-4,00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 669MHz (9-9-9-24) (says speccy, the ram I bought was sold as .SKILL - ECO Series - DDR3-1333 / PC3-10666 - 4 GB (2x2048MB) - 7-7-7-21 - F3-10666CL7D-4GBECO)
That PSU is garbage. It should not ever touch a PC component and a plug at the same time
It actually worked fine without any problems whatsoever for 2 years. Only recently Ive been having this issues, and I still think it's caused by damage from dust.
Granted I had to sent back the first one I received because it didn't work...at all, in any way.
