Unexpexted shut down of PC

by Kripdish / June 21, 2015 10:47 AM PDT

I have just replaced my motherboard, memory, CPU, HHD, ,GPU and now my pc shuts down as if there was a power loss. To get it back on I must switch off the power supply (on back of PSU) and unplug it for 15 seconds or so and then power up. I am then prompted to start windows normally of in safe mode. Then it starts and runs normally. This only seems to happen when I am running 2 monitors (one DVI and the other HDMI) and most frequently when online. Ran Benchmark 3D with out issue, temp got up to 68c.

System specs.
PSU: Thermaltake TR2 600 W
MB: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3
CPU: AMD FX6300 3.5GHz
RAM: Ballistix DDR3 1600 8Gb
HHD: Seagate 1TB 7200 RPM
GPU: Asus Radeon R7 250X 1Gb

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'd look at the system event log.

It sounds like a video driver problem, but look at the cryptic system event log for further clues.

Tried reloading drivers

Thanks for replying. I have tried updating drivers, did not help. removed drivers to reload from disc (which caused me to lose keyboard and mouse functions in windows not in bios) Replaced HHD and started all over. Event log before new HHD and after shows Event ID 41 Power-Kernel, and since the new HHD 10010/10011 DriverFrameWorks-UserMode.

quick question
by renegade600 / June 22, 2015 1:10 PM PDT

did you reinstall the operating system or use the old install before replacing drive. when you replaced the drive, did you use a clone/image.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
