Computer shutsdown when running the Furmark GPU stress test
« on: September 09, 2015, 11:18:30 AM »
Good Day All,

I am looking for some insight on an issue that I am having.  It started when I was trying to run a game (I have played this game before on my PC) and it shut down my computer.  After some online research I downloaded Furmark to do a stress test.  As soon as I click the button 'GPU Stress Test', my computer instantly shuts down.  It doesn't even give an opportunity to run the test.  Does anyone know what type of problem I may be encountering.  Most suggestions lean toward either a faulty power supply or a GPU that is going bad; very difficult for me to tell.

The specific game that I tried to run is Tera.

The shutdown when starting FurMark stress test is a sign of a weak PSU. Try a strong PSU (I use some Corsair CX 750 or AX 860 with my test setups and they are very good) and I bet your FurMark reboots will desappear. In any case, if you find a solution, let us know.
