Recommended Posts

Must be your power supply.

Edit:Found in some forums people saying this problem is caused by the bios,try reset....

Open your PC and remove the silver battery on cpu,wait 10 minutes and put again...see if helps

shutting down or rebooting ? power supply ?

Just shuts down, fully.

Could be, but couldn't it also be overheating / dust ? I haven't cleaned it in a while and minecraft was working fineand never made my computer shut down... only started very recently to shut down every time I played it. I think in the past I also had an overheating problem and it made the computer shut down also ... as far as I can remember

 

And thank you, I should try that though

Start small and eliminate faults one by one....

 

Since it's free, do try dusting before buying parts, you never know.

Yeah I'm gonna do that! What's the best way to do dusting?

air compressor!

 

overheating can do that , yes ..You should know your cpu\gpu's temps....

 

use realtemp to monitor ur cpu temp and afterbunner for the gpu

I've found out that while minecraft was on CPU was 73-82 and GPU 55C.

 

So it seems to be overheating am I right?

 

What to do ? :)

I just had the same problem and fixed it yesterday.

Here are the steps I took:

1.Clean the dust from the inside completely with an air compressor (Filter!) or air cans you can get at any electronics store.

2.(Advanced, for experienced computer users only!) Remove heatsink and completely clean all dust out, then clean off thermal paste off heatsink and CPU, then re-apply thermal paste to the heatsink and re install the heatsink.

3.Disable any programs running in the background (especially on Windows 10)

4.On Windows 10, for me the search indexer and cortana application were using all my hard disk and things in game were loading slowly and my game was running 15 FPS average, I disabled them and I get over 40 FPS average on highest settings, and my computer is not extremely powerful.

First thing to do when asking for help like this is to list what parts you actually have in your PC. 55C on the GPU is nothing. 73-82C is fine on an Intel CPU, would fry an AMD.

 

My first guess would be PSU, I think I read someone saying that overheating leads to bluescreens.

Overheating will normally cause a bluescreen or reboot. If it's actually powering off, I reckon it's most likely to be a PSU failing but could be something else power management related like a motherboard issue.

Normally if your pc shutdowns itself without displaying the blue screen of death, it mostly did it to protect the cpu from being toasted, I had this problem before. Clean your heatsink and apply some thermal grease ontop of your cpu.

Don't think the PC will fully shut down because of an overheating component, but that CPU temp is really high.

Like others have said it could be a power supply issue. You don't really give a whole lot of information as to what your system specs are, whether or not you have anything overclocked, how long you've had the system for, etc.

 

If you've had the power supply for awhile then it could be dying and needs to be replaced, but you should do something about that high CPU temp as well.

I've suffered almost 3-4 months with this sudden shutdowns,it turned out that anti-surge in ASUS motherboards is the cause for this random shutdowns,got a power plug protector and disabled the anti-surge from BIOS.

I'd be more inclined to find out what's causing these power surges than to just turn the protections off, they're there for a reason. Do you know if it's dirty power from the wall or if your power supply is to blame?

The thing is sometimes the game runs for 2-3 hours without the PC shutting down and sometimes it shuts down in a matter of 10 seconds after the game loads,my power supply is a gold EVGA 850W,I've tried many tests in order to locate the cause for the shutdowns,but nothing did it,then after going through ASUS forums it was mentioned that anti-surge in ASUS motherboards is actually broken or just for some of those motherboards,so with that went ahead and disabled it,bought a power plug protector which basically does the same job by protecting the PC from over and low voltage,so far haven't experienced any shutdown and everything is working how it's supposed to.

73-82C is fine on an Intel CPU, would fry an AMD.

Not really. I read from a seemingly legitimate source that the fail safe gets triggered at 90 degrees on AMD CPUs and physical damage only starts to occur at 97+. That's comparable to Intel specifications.

What source would that be and for what CPUs? Most AM3+ CPUs have a maximum temperature of 62 degrees I believe.

It should be noted that Intel states max Tj temperature, while AMD gives max Tc temp. This is NOT the same. It's kinda similar to TDP, where both companies measure data differently and it shouldn't be compared.
