Computer Shut itself down during game

I recently built my first computer. While I was playing guild wars 2 a few weeks ago my computer screen turned blue and made this monotone sound for roughly 5-10 seconds. The monitor then turned black and the computer began to restart itself. I thought at first that maybe my computer was running to hot and have since been watching my temperatures.
While playing videogames my graphics card can get up to 50-70 degrees celcius depending on the game, while my CPU stays around 50 degrees celcius. Since I have watched my temps nothing has happened until today it occurred again.

Does anyone have an idea of how I can check my parts? They aren't even a month old. Here is my setup.
Thank You
Intel core i5-3570k
Biostar TZ77XE3 ATX LGA1155
Crosair Vengeance 8 gb DDR3-1600
whatever hard drive and cd drive that came with my inspiron 580

Antec 750W 80 plus
All in a cool master storm trooper case.

  1. Check your drivers. What does windows error report says after restart? Make your PC not to restart at blue screen and write down what it says, it may point you what has failed to execute.

    The blue screen doesn't say anything. It just is a pale blue but ill check what it says when I turn it back on.
  3. it may be your PSU is not up to the task. what PSU are you using?

  5. It can be lot of issues, probably drivers, but couple years ago i had same problem when playing multiplayer games only. Kaspersky lab gave me beta testing version of their internet security and that was reason why. It created own virtual network adapter and assigned same IRQ as my network adapter. So it could and probably is software issue.

    How should I go about checking my drivers? Is there a way to check them all at once or do I need to go through individually in the device manager?
  7. Well first disable auto restart on startup and recovery so blue screen will stay and you can read it more carefully my computer properties, open advanced sytem tab and searchstartup and recovery and under settings unchesk auto restart. When bsod returns see if says anything. Then we will go further after that and try other merods.
  8. This is what my computer told me when I turned it back on today. Any ideas on how to go about fixing that?

  9. No, i need to see complete minidump file. Find this C:\Windows\Minidump\032413-17830-01.dmp and upload that file to skydrive so could be analyzed. Other thing you can do is to go My computer properties - advanced system settings - startuo and recovery settings - uncheck automatic restart. Click ok and restart. Now when BSOD happen it will stay on screen and you will be able to examine error. Look for somekind of filename on blue screen.

    It won't let me add it to skydrive because it says it is empty. Any ideas?
    Also, I did the restart but nothing shows up. It just starts up normally

    donwload and open that minidump file.. it will show minidump and post screenshot of bluescreen.

    Restart was needed to apply changes you made previosuly.

    It's been working with no problems. That blue screen error has just happened twice over the month or so since building my computer. Just wanted to clean it up before anything worse happened.
  17. Ok :)
