    Posted: 15 Nov 2011 at 6:47pm

We already sent the machine back once to be "repaired" and got it back with the same vexing problem.  We first start the machine,  leave it sit,  then when we try to install something or start up a game the system crashes and reboots.

Customer ID:  k8uwu8
We tried different video cards, issue still there.  Tried testing with only one stick of memory in the system and then we couldn't even get video to come on.

Post your build specs, so members can help.

Memory may take "two" modules at a time.

Have you tried the power supply test in the first thread in this section?

I see that when the system shipped back on 9/1, the tech replaced the motherboard, ram and power supply for you to rule out any other issues. Incase you get bsod's, can you provide a picture of the blue screen? You could also download a program called bluescreenview which will allow you to see the bsod's once in windows again. If by crash and reboot you do not mean bsod, than can you please explain what "crash" means to you?
 
Please post more details and specs (including hardware you may have added) for others to also help provide you with some input and see if we can help you solve your issues.

Wasnt sure they replaced the memory or not but glad to know.  Nothing new has been added so its the same build.  At this point I'm wondering if the CPU is the culprit.  No BSOD.  Crash I mean that the screen goes dark and immediately reboots, power supply fan cranks up and then I lose the video.  I have to shut down, unplug the power and let it sit for at least 5 minutes to be able to get the system to power back on with video.  I also reloaded the OS with the recovery CD just to rule out Windows and it still does the same thing on a fresh load.
The strange part is that sometimes if you do nothing and just leave the computer alone it will boot sometimes to windows and will stay up for hours,  start up a game or try to install something like Adobe Flash and it immediately goes to a black screen and reboots.
 
By the way, sorry for being so vague at the beginning.  Here are the specs:

Ok Here is a video I took with my brother. 
 
Takes a few minutes but you get the idea.  At the start the system is up and running, I stand up to start a ping to yahoo.com.  I sit back down and start talking about the issue and then it happens,  the screen goes out and the system reboots.
 
Any thoughts?

My suggestion would be to try and contact Tech Support. They can hopefully help out.

 
Have you tried to run the PC on one videocard? I see you have yours crossfired my suggestion take one out and try them seperately. 
 
Next if you have an extra one laying around try a different harddrive in your pc see if that is the culprit.  Id say a bad harddrive is more likely than a bad cpu or videocard but this atleast gives you some options.
 
If neither of these work then let us know and ill see if i can think of something else in the meantime.
 
Also checked the MoBo out and there are lots of negative reviews on it.  So may be the motherboard again.

I had this exact same thing happen to me and it turned out that the pump on my liquid cooler had died.  Unfortunately by this time your CPU may have took some damage from the overheating (if this is the case).  I would make sure your pump is running.  Normally if a PC shuts down when trying to run a game or anything that "taxes" it, it could be heat related.

As said above, check your cpu temps. Most AMD processors seem to have issues once they hit about 64-66c.

Ok Cyberpower. so Finally I get a RMA to ship this PC back to you for the second time and now you tell me I have to pay to ship it back. Not very happy with you right now to say the least. You had better test this machine very well and make sure it can at least do what it says it can do. Such as play a game!!
