Hi guys. I just recently upgraded my computer to windows 8. Before upgrading I've had no problems whatsoever. Yesterday I was surfing the web and my computer randomly shuts off and comes back on. I didn't get a error message or anything. So it's been happening more consistently. So I went to my event viewer I found a critical error saying "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."

This is also a copy of the details of the event. If anyone can give some advice on what causing this, I would appreciate it!

My cousin custom built this pc for me. Everything in the pc is about 4 months old except the hard drive. I took the hard drive out of my old gateway which is about 5 years old. Also before my computer restarts the screen turns black and the speaker make a weird noise. It just recently started doing that.



Geforce GTX 560
Intel Core i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHZ
Asus P8Z77-V LX Motherboard
Corsair 8GB Vengeance RAM
Corsair TX650M Power Supply
WD Caviar SE 320GB hard drive

CPU voltage - +1.008V
3.3v voltage - +3.328V
5v voltage - + 5.040V
12v voltage - + 11.808

CPU temp - 33.0c

I have a number of questions - could you please provide the answers with the same reference numbers

1. Was 8 installed in UEFI or was UEFI changed to legacy mode

2. Were the updates recommended by Asus installed
http://uk.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8Z77V_LX/#download
I see a number of them

3. You do not state which ram other than Corsair 8GB Vengeance
which is it please

4. The ram for that processor Intel i5 3570K running as standard is
Memory Types
DDR3-1333/1600

Is yours the 1333 or 1600 or have you set ram voltages and timings etc to run one of the
DDR3 2400(O.C.)/2200(O.C.)/2133(O.C.)/2000(O.C.)/1866(O.C.)/1800(O.C.)/
ram speeds that are OC

5. Have you overclocked anything eg GPU

6. Is there a dump file

7. Have you installed the up to date driver for the 560

8. I doubt very much it is a ram problem insofar as it is defective but on desktop press windows key and type - I know there is no where to type then - but it will as soon as you press a key -
type
m
now click the settings on the right of the screen
continue to type
memory (mem will probably produce the next
you will now see on left
Diagnose your computers memory problems
RUN IT please just to be sure

That is enough for now I think
