Computer reboot and disconnection

Jun 25, 2018 7:48PM PDT

I don't know what happened... My PC freezes for a seccond and then it reboots but when is on again it only lasts for a couple of minutes and... All turns black, the screen doesn't detect anyting and the mouse and the keyboard are dead too. The only solution I found was to disconnect and the connect again my monitor... That after that I pressed the ON button to turn the PC off. After that I can turn on the PC again and... That's it. The problem is that this happened the first time yesterday and today it happened again. I fear that this can be a recurring problem... Do anybody know what's the problem?

....the monitor quits? When this happens, do you get a "No Signal" or similar message on the monitor, or is it just black too?

That's a fair enough PC

But nothing here looks wrong. Could be heat related or a bum driver. What's in the Event Viewer?

It doesn't say anything about that

It only reports the sudden reboot but I can't see anything related to the other thing... It's not heat, because I have checked that and the higher temperature I saw was 51°C. If you want I can copypaste here what it says in the Event Viewer.

BitTorrent?
Jun 27, 2018 10:53AM PDT

1. BitTorrent is running.
While I can't guess why or what it was used for, when I find BitTorrent the machine is about half the time infected.

It's also unsupportable since even with scans we can't be sure due to this is usually where the newest and most stealthy infections come from.

I'd plan on a wipe out and start fresh.

2. DAEMON Tools Lite
Another thing I have found to result in nearly impossible to figure out PCs.

Let's be clear here. This PC is looking like a pirate ship. Those ships had a tough time getting service.

3. CPU Core voltage looks low. I'd add 0.1V to it. Double check with other tools like CPUz.

4. Way too many IP connections. Could be torrents or W10. Read:

Sorry folk but if you torrent, you get carp and more than you bargain for, even when it's for videos, etc. No good news here.

Psu
Jun 27, 2018 10:55AM PDT

Your psu is junk!

13a on the 12v rail.

You have a choice.
Go shopping for a 400w+ quality single rail unit or use your warranty.

You're right.
