So recently my computer has been shutting down kind of randomly. I've been checking core temps right after shutdowns and they never exceed 55C, so I know it's not overheating. It started on a Steam game called Dungeon Defenders. Today it happened on Guild Wars 2. So the idea that I might not have enough power to run the system came up. Is this the case? I hope not... If not, any ideas to what might be making my computer randomly turn off during game play?
I should note that when it happens on Dungeon Defenders, the screen turns black, but the computer stays on. No sound can be heard from the game, and ctrl-alt-del doesn't work. Once in a great while the computer will just shut off. With Guild Wars 2 today, it shut off. Again, I've checked my temps using gpu-z and CoreTemp - highest i've seen gpu is 55c, cpu is 47c.
Just ran Furmark and Prime 95 to really give my system a run through. Cpu gets to 47c. Gpu gets to 72c. Might try a memtest later to see if I can get anything. Otherwise, I can't find anything in windows event viewer, other than the computer unexpectedly shut down.
