Hello everyone.

Awhile back me and my wife bought her a pc for animating from ncix, and after about a week or two, it started randomly rebooting. We have tried almost everything. From changing sata cables, to reformatting and moving over to a ssd, we tried different sticks of ram, and we have even changed the psu.
Im usually very good with computer hardware but this has me stumped. What happens is she will be just be browsing the web literally, and itll reboot, no bsod, however once it starts back up, it gives a minidump warning, which made me think it was the ram, which it isint. Could it be a corrupt bios?
The current systems specs are;
AMD fx-6300 cpu (stock clocks)
Radeon 7790 gpu (stock clocks)
Corsair 750w psu
Gigabyte ga-78lmt usb motherboard
16 gb kingston hyper x 1600mhz
1tb 7200rpm hdd
120gb kingston ssd
And windows 8

Please help me if you guys can. If you need any more info let me know! Thank you in advance.

What does the mini dump say? My guess would be a driver issue and probably catalyst. If it's just web browsing it could be from your browser using graphic acceleration.

Alright so it restarted again, after a few weeks, but it did. the minidump says;
"C:\Windows\minidump\012314-5943-01.dmp
C:\Users\PC\AppData\Local\Temp\WER-12604-0.sysdata.xml

I'm going to say it's one of your drivers but I'd have to look at the actual dump file to see which one. I'd go through and update them all and see if that solves it. Are you using any old software?

hmmm they all seem to be updated, and we have reformatted many times, so i would think the problem would be fixed by then? Any specific drivers you'd think could be causing it?

True and you should have gotten it more often than once in a two week period. Is your computer on a UPS? Perhaps your outlet has a voltage drop every now and then causing your computer to reboot?
