Question PC Shutdown/Restart not random with HLL


Jan 15, 2013
Hey all,

In the past I had a problem where I didn't have one before. My PC would shutdown and restart when playing H&G. I was able to fix that with MSI Afterburner and Riva Tuner by fixing the FPS to 55FPS.
I recently downloaded Hell Let Loose on Steam and when I get to the server screen, it will shutdown and restart my pc in less than 30 seconds. I updated drivers and still have this issue. Not sure what may be causing it, but I'm starting to thing my GPU might have issues with certain instructions...
I checked out the Steam forum and I have not found anything else like it.
Kindly provide more details....What's H&G ? Are those your current PC specs, as evident from your SIG ? If not, then provide more details.

-1. "Complete" system specs should ALWAYS be accompanied with any driver, hardware, or performance question. Do not post DXDiag reports as they contain a TON of useless information. Posting a DxDiag in place of a System Spec List tends to ward off potential members from helping you.

Please supply the following system details/information:

(Complete System Specs)
-CPU make and model# (clock speed/voltage, type of cooler, and "Core" temperature @ idle and load)
-Motherboard make & model# (include Bios version if graphics card is not recognized or you are having stability issues)
-RAM (amount, clock speed, model#/link of kit, configuration)
-Graphics card(s) make and model# (clock speed, voltage if modified, Driver version and GPU temp both @ idle and load)
-Power supply make,model#, "AND" age (note if using 110V or 220V A/C input)
-HDD/SSD configuration (ie: Raid setup/ back up/ OS drive/etc..)
-Case/Chasis make,model# (fan make, model#, and configuration if having thermal issues)
-Operating System (If using Windows note Framework and service pack version)
-Monitor make, model#, and resolution (If model# is unknown list resolution and refresh rate)

*If the unit is a "laptop" or "All-in-one" system you must note the make and model# of the unit. Be sure you are ALWAYS using the OEM/manufacturer's Driver updates for the unit.

*If "Crashing":
-Note the nature of the "crash" in detail, as there are several definitions for the word "crash".

*If "performance" related issue:
-Note the "exact" point in which the performance reduction occurred (ie: After Windows update, After Bios update, After Driver update, After thermal system shutdown, After Hardware change/upgrade etc...)

*For diagnostic purposes please disable the following:
-Any/all Antivirus/ Anti-malware software
-Any/all OSD monitoring software

Sorry H&G is Heroes and Generals. Free to play online.

Those are current specs with 1 exception and a few notes:
Cooler is now EVO-212
CPU @ 35 running 36 idle and mid 50s load
GPU running stock with temps at 26 and 60 load
The PSU is 2012... suspect to degradation but not sure.
