Computer info at the end.
My computer started restarting at seemingly random times yesterday, and I have no clue why. I've tried:
- Restart the computer
- Reinstall GPU drivers
- Virus scan
- System Restore
- Reinstall Windows on a different, new drive
- Run Memtest86 (no errors found)
- Run the computer with just one of my two RAM sticks (tried with each stick individually, no change)
- Reseat all PSU cable connections
- Replace GPU
I have no idea what causes it. Sometimes it's when I'm playing games. Sometimes it's when I'm browsing the web. Sometimes it's when the OS is starting after a cold boot. I haven't had any crashes while using the computer in safe mode, but I don't know if that's coincidence or not, because the amount of time it takes for the computer to restart is somewhere between 10 seconds and several hours. I've checked my event logs - nothing. It just says that the computer shut down unexpectedly. I looked for a minidump - nothing. It shuts down too suddenly; there's no BSOD. This computer has been sitting in the same exact location for probably 5 months now, save for one or two small adjustments over the last couple months. No problems until yesterday. I hadn't installed any new programs or downloaded anything.
- OS: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit Build 1511 (OS Build 10586.318)
- CPU: Ryzen 5 1600
- RAM: 16 GB (8x2) G.Skill Trident Z RGB (tested with each 8GB stick individually)
- Mobo: Asus Prime X370-Pro
- GPU: Nvidia GTX 1070 (also tried GTX 970)
- Storage: 500GB WD Black M.2 (also tried with 250GB OCZ Vector-180). 1TB Caviar Black HDD for storage.
Running two monitors at 1440p if that matters.
PSU: I believe I have a 650W PSU rated at Bronze. I'll see if I can get more specific info.
I have no idea what to look into next. It's still restarting. Event viewer is still providing exactly zero useful evidence as far as I can tell.
Additionally, it just restarted while I had Speccy open, so I was also able to rule out temps - CPU was in the mid-30s and GPU was in the mid-40s.
