- It's unlikely the GPU would crash the machine like this, I think.
- Anything applicable in Event Viewer?
- I see this was a quite expensive all-in-one (1300 euro back in 2010), but probably quite old also. Repair might be too expensive. But you can ask HP or a repair shop for an estimate.
I have an Hp touch smart 600-1160. The computer makes a pop sound and then shuts off with no blue screens. The computer is not dead, after it shuts off it turns on back again but only after a few minutes and then it makes the pop sound and shuts off again after a couple minutes of usage. I thought it might be an overheating issue with the GPU so I replaced it, but it wasn't. I also thought it might the PSU, but the pop sound comes from the computer and not the power brick.
What do you guys think? I am all out of ideas
The Specs are: Intel core i5 430M nVidia GT230M 4GB RAM 1.5TB HDD
Thanks in advance
