Hardware problems

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

Have this really annoying problem - when I try to save the progress made in 3dmax after a pretty long time of work, the PC freezes and then reloads. This problem I have for already half a month. The only thing that helps is to autosave every 5 god damn minutes. I have no idea what is the problem. My hardware: Intel core i5, Nvidia GTX 780, 8 gb DDR 3, Hard 200 gb. maybe anyone could help, or have same problem

Random resets are usually related to heat, power, damaged hardware, or driver issues. Make sure the computer is clean and free of dust buildup and in a well ventilated place (not in a closed cabinet or a closet).

If this just recently started, try cleaning out all fans, heatsinks and filters (including the GPU). You can do it low-tech style by blowing hard into a straw at the heatsink, though a long straw is recommended :). Or use compressed air from a spray bottle. Do NOT use a vacuum cleaner due to the huge amount of static it can generate.

 

Edit: if it's always rebooting during save and you're saving to an SSD, it might be corrupt.
