    Default New Build Problem

    My problem is, when i start my system up it is very unstable it flashes on and off i go to sign in and it takes a few times off going back to sign in. Then it calms down untill about 5 mins later then the screen goes black, but screen is still on and not shut down so i have to hit reset button and come back in, the other strange thing is it stays on sometimes like now. I have looked at everything power cable got 3 so swopped them around, then i looked at the power supply which i changed. Uninstalled Windows 8 and clean installed again made sure all my connections were plugged in correctly and the system has been on a diognostics machine 3 times and they said its a good system we never found nothing wrong. Can someone help me please.

    Hello and welcome to TweakTown.

    So the/a computer shop tested it and found nothing wrong, it ran good for them? They were able to do the thing you mention above and without any issues as you described? Did they test it using your parts you list above?

    At your residence is the computer plugged into a power strip, surge suppressor, or any variant, other than directly to the wall outlet? If it is, plug it into a non-shared wall outlet instead and retest please.

    My PC had all internal items in it when it was put on Diagnostic machine, i dont know if they run it for any long period. But it was put on Diagnostic Machine 3 time since i have built it and Power Supply, Graphics Card, SS Drive, Ram and CD Rom where all in it. The items i have outside the case is my Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse and Speaker also a Webcam When i set it up but not in all the time which is a Logitech c910hd as for power i have my speakers, monitor and power supply going into a 4 x plug extention cable as only a single socket near by.

    I tried plugging in direct to sockets and it still was not stable, i am thinking it is either USB ports or graphics card cable or the adaptor on back of graphics card. But i have 2 Monitors and tried both and they are both unstable, they have separate cables for both the only item they both use is the adapter into graphics card. I am also wondering if it could be static in my system any help would be appreitiated.

    Strip it down to what it was when you took it to the shop and test.

    Why the video adapter? What adapter is it?

    Also, disconnect that Logitech webcam and retry. Seen enough probs with Logitech USB webcams I should have mentioned that first.

    I have an adaptor in graphics card as i was using 2 monitors at one time it has a normal fitting and a longer one so lad who i know had one so i could run 2 monitors. i have not got Logitech C910 webcam plugged in only used to plug it in when needed also webcam darts is why i got computer so it has to work with HD webcam. Will sort my signature out so the specs are up on every post, thank you will strip it down and just leave it for a while.
