I hope someone would be able to help me. I'm having problems with my PC and I'm not sure what's going on. Whenever I'm doing something, my computer randomly restart without any notification and I don't know why. When I see my event logs, I cant even understand what it meant. It's quite irritating, whenever I'm playing games or doing some office work it just randomly turn off the CPU then restart again. Hope someone could help me. Thank you.

The first thing to check is the temperature.

If you don't already have a program to do so, you can download CPUID's Hardware Monitor.

If you see abnormally high temps, like over 70c, then you may have an overheating issue.

Let us know the results.

I downloaded the program and I think the results are fine. No temps reach 70c but what's happening is like it shutdown itself then restart. I tried to open a game and check for the temps and is still the same but it still shut down my system and turns on by itself.


All the Temperatures are ranging from

Core #0-38-45c

Core #1-38-45c

Core #2-38-45c

Core #3-38-45c



My PC Specs are



Windows 8 64 bit



Intel Core i5 3330 CPU @ 3.00GHz 3.20 GHz


Installed Ram




Saphhire HD 7850





Im not that good when in comes to troubleshooting computers so thank you so much for you help.

You are 100% correct that those temps are great and overheating is definitely not your problem.

The problem is that overheating is an easy problem to find and cure.

Now, the sky's the limit.

It could be a driver, malware, a virus, file corruption, a certain program running in the background, etc.


When did the problem start?

If it's recent, you might be able to get around it with a System Restore.
