|Recently my computer has been powering down when trying to play games like Diablo 3, Portal, SC 2, borderland etc... |
I have checked my temperature with evga precision and cpu-z and they were fine. Have flashed both my gpu and asus bios to the most recent firmware. I have installed fresh realtek drivers, nvidia drivers, and reformatted all of windows 7 in an act of desperation! (I did the reformat first actually...). Another little details is when I flashed the bios the problem seemed to go away for a day. It came back sadly.
I sent the whole thing into a pc repair shop so they could stress and and check the parts. They couldn't reciprocate the problem... which was odd. They also checked the rails which were fine! I also tried extending my power to every single outlet in my house and I have replaced my power cord with other power cords to just be sure.
I think that covers what I have tried very briefly and any help would be much appreciated. Oh and have my computer configuration.
