So i got my new power supply its a 600w Antec psu and im not getting any power surges as of now. But i do have one question: Could a fauly power supply be linked to the screen shuting off but sound in background still plays but nothing can be done to set it back? Beacuse that would happen every so often when i play a high demanding game for a few hours.
I use a Asus motherboard which comes with its own anti surge shut off. When it says it occurs it shut off pc and gives a screen like what i put bellow (its not my picture due to me forgetting to get my camera) and the Bsods as far as i know have stoped but i am still continuing testing to see if i can be 100% sure.
I sadly don't have any extra parts. And this hasent been happening for the last few days with my new PSU just once last night. Do you know anyway i can test my pc to see if there is a corrupt part on my pc that is causing this. And after i do a next reboot i will be turnin off my asus surge support due to my power cord being already on a anti surge platform.
You've pretty much scanned the pc with the tests you've been running and it sounds like that anti surge app is set too low which is why it's tripping out. You only have to do a quick search to find many links which relate to this. If i was you I'd turn it off and just keep a watchful eye out. Any problems post back.
Well it seems like there is now another problem. when playing games for a couple hours the screen turns black, sound cuts of or loops for a few seconds and than stops but the PC is still on.
My idle temps are around 29c - 39c
Gaming temp is around 40c - 60c
Games this has happened on are: Ark and Insurgency.
