My name is Joe. Thanks for stopping to check this out.
I recent upgraded my computer with the following parts.
GPU-Geforce GTX 760 2GB
HD-WD 2TB SATA
I also went with Windows 8.1 because I thought it may have been my old OS on my old HD. Same random result.
Anyways. My computer will be on and seem just fine, but it will randomly restart. This seems to happen(maybe just coincidence) with I am downloading, or copying large files. It also has cut of my audio a couple times upon restart.
I thought it my have been my old HD so I upgraded to the one above. No dice.
Is there a setting in bios that I need to adjust? Do I have a bleepty motherboard?
Sorry, I forgot to mention the PS.
It is a Corsair 850W PS. I don't think this is the problem on account 850W should be more than enough, and also, these problems did not begin until I swapped out the Motherboard, CPU, GPU, and RAM.
Strange enough, the motherboard is "Ultra Durable", but on my previous upgrade, I had a power issue, and it ended up being the old Gigabyte motherboard(this was back in 2010).
Another thing worth considering is the fact that I would lose the Realtek audio driver on about half of these startups, and I read the Windows 8.1 could be the culprit for that. Keep in mind, this happened before I changed HD and OS. So maybe the random resarts just added to the already documented OS glitch? All speculation of course.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
