  1. I'm getting random reboots while playing a new game in beta. I used to get these same reboots during Everquest 2 play, but they stopped.

    1. I see nothing that jumps out in the event viewer.
    2. My cpu runs no hotter then 45c.
    3. I ran mem tests on my ram over nite with no errors.
    4. I cant get my pc to write to my .dmp file. I have it set up under system properties correctly.
    Is there a service that needs to be on? I shut down lots of services for gaming.

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks,

    Tray

    Hi and welcome to Techspot!! :)

    First, check out this thread HERE, and tell us your system's PSU (power supply) specs, like make & model, wattage, and amperage on the +12V rail. Check the PSU's label, that info should be there.

    Regards :wave:

    Yep. Sounds like an "about to melt" PSU
