I built my brother a gaming rig around the end of June. It was working flawlessly, but when the end of August came around and consecutively worse into September, it's been shutting down on it's own without warning. I've cleaned it, unplug/replug components, moved it to a part of his room that supports more air flow, checked the CPU temps, updated the BIOS... basically everything that I could personally think of. It shuts down faster when he is gaming rather than normal PC usage... and even with a temp reader the CPU range is between 35-50C when in full gaming use. When I fire the PC back up (or it reconvenes on it's own), I do get this error message:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1033
Additional information about the problem:

No BSoD even occurs, yet that is what the message specifies. Is there anyone out there that can help me with my problem? I want taking it to a professional to fix it to be a last resort, since I have the ability to do everything else beforehand.

Thanks for all the help in advance. I really appreciate it!
Sorry I haven't been on here... busy with college and all...
Anyway, I ran memtest86 through the disk. No errors. I talked to my friend's dad (who programs, troubleshoots, and debugs for a living), and he said that it sounds like a video card issue. This caught me by surprise since I didn't take to mind that a video card could shut down your who rig. Testing Driver Fusion (Driver Sweeper) and going through that process to see if there was a faulty file within the driver.
Okay, this is getting annoying. I completely replaced the drivers and that wasn't the issue either. Has anyone else had this issue? This particular gaming rig was expensive, and to not be able to play games without it shutting down without warning is ridiculous. I want my co-op buddy back
check for ur pci slot see if it dirty
check all the plug to see if one of them bend.....what the rating of ur GPU....if GPU if GPU take too much out of PSU then the MB didnt have enought....check if your CPU cooler have enought air flow or if your I5 is over heating..what resolution and see if your window function right
Your problem sounds very similar to mine. I too am experiancing random shutdowns on my win 7 desktop pc. I thought it maybe the graphic card to and i purchased a new card but i am still having shutdowns. I now believe the problem is the psu and i am going to swap it out tomorrow with a known good psu. Your psu could be failing like mine. Ill post back with results.
