Solved PC turns off by itself. quick on high graphic slow on medium

May 17, 2016 at 18:15:11
Specs: Windows 10
What steps to take before its a parts issue?

It used to turn off right before I got to the "log in" portion of windows. I took out my second hard drive and somehow it now allows me to use it. I Haven't tried low graphic games but I assume it'll let me do at least that... When I say high graphics i refer to black ops 3. And medium graphics is H1Z1 which wont turn off pc till 30min or so.

In addition to the above comments explain in more detail about the second hard drive. Windows normally tries to boot from the LAST installed hard drive. You may need to enter the BIOS (setup) and change the boot order to boot from the original hard drive. That should solve the boot problem.

As stated above, without any specs we can't say what games your system may be able to play.

In addition to installed hardware the drivers must be updated too.

Is it a Ford or Chevy? V6 or V8? Factory stock or modified? Auto or stick?

1- List your system specs. Either make and model number or a list of major components (makes and model numbers) and do not forget the power supply.
2- Your first sentence does not make sense by itself or with the rest. Please explain better. You are not charged by the word, in fact you are not charged at all. Ever. This is because we are volunteering our time so make it easy if you want real answers.
3- Do some of the work also. Run HWMonitor for a while at idle and then while gaming and report back on Temperatures, Fan Speeds, and Voltages on all listed components.
4- Tell us everything you have already tried and the results so we will not waste our time or your time suggesting things you have already tried.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Obviously my other response was a joke (sort of). We can't help you if we don't know what you have. Telling us you have a "high performance desktop" isn't helpful. Is it a custom-built PC or OEM (Acer, Dell, HP, etc). If it's an OEM, please state the make/model/model number & if any modifications have been made. If it's a custom-build, please list the complete specs in as much detail as possible - CPU, motherboard, RAM, graphics, HDD, power supply, etc.

Had the PC been working OK & then this problem started, or have you been having the problem since day one? Did you make any hardware or software changes that may have brought this on? Not sure how old it is but when's the last time you opened the case & blew out all the dirt/dust that's accumulated inside, especially on the heatsinks & fans?
