David, perhaps you can solve your issue in your own thread. I don't think this is germane to the OP's problem and this is going way off topic.
I replaced the PSU and it still shuts off and restarts next task try another Graphics card and also to play safe change the AMD CPU cooler and replace thermal paste,also thought about reinstalling windows 10 on a cleaned drive.
@martinlw I just had a graphics card start causing shut down issues recently. The computer would randomly reboot even without load. I thought it was the power supply or the MB. I had a decent older card lying around so I decided to install it. The computer boots normally and it doesn't reboot on it's own anymore. I would see if you can get a hold of a GPU (old one or a friends) to see if it is the GPU. Cause at current GPU prices, you don't want to replace it if you don't have to.
I forget, did you reseat RAM and run memtest86 overnight yet?
I did the memtest86 it found no problems ,put in another graphics card thought it had solved the problem after two days shutdown and restarted again so next item cpu cooler and new paste but I am not convinced that is the problem ,just hope it isnt the motherboard.Forgot to mention did a clean install of windows 10 before trying the graphics card.
Just to confirm:
DDU and install fresh download of GPU driver? https://www.techspot.com/drivers/driver/file/information/17830/
Reseated RAM and did as you quoted ,see how we go from here.
Hi Here's my 2 cents. A clean install of W10 should take care of any software problems. IMO that leaves hardware problems.
Here's a free software I use. I don't know how good it is, but you could give it a look. Let me know what you think of this program.
I tried to wipe my ssd with killdisk but it became stuck on 2 percent saying there is an error with the disk could be the problem or not.I decided to put W10 on my other hardrive see what happens.
I use 'format' which writes zeroes - and not 'quick format'
Hi IMHO, you don't need to wipe a hard drive to install windows 10.https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us...stall-of/aef0ae63-2117-41ee-a8ea-4a3181625b08
I used zeroes it took about an hour only 160GB
I removed the ssd hard drive with windows 10 on and did a clean install of windows 10 on my other hard drive,I also used the software holdrum323 advised for any hardware problems and it reported everything fine its handy software to have thanks. It hasnt shutdown and restarted up to present fingers crossed.
Hi! Thanks for your reply. Glad to hear your success. I'll cross my fingers also!
