Random shut down of Computer while gaming
Posted 16 May 2012 - 02:50 PM
The program files don't include any duplicate files (which I thought may be a problem. Aion did have a duplicate initially, and the deletion of this file appeared to fix the problem, though it returned the next day.)
Further research has indicated that the CPU maybe overheating, or the the PSU is failing. I'm not "techy" enough to know if it is the PSU, so I thought I'd ask for help.
Additionally, when the computer shuts down, there is no warning, just a black screen and then the keyboard lights and fans stop running roughly 5s afterwards.
Attached is the Speccy file of my computer's current state.

Ran a few other programs on it today, updated drivers and the like, and the "shutdown" has yet to reoccur since then, but that may be unrelated.

The heat readings are likely high due to the 2 hour play time I had undergone previous to the Speccy, since I wanted to make it as accurate as possible. That said, I updated a few drivers in my system, including graphics, sound, etc. and haven't had the problem since, so I'm thinking that the issue may be resolved. Still, thank you for your swift response and help. I do appreciate it.
