    Windows 8.1 BSOD/Auto Reboot during Gaming/PSU Stress Test


    Hello, I have been encountering automated reboot during gaming, since almost a year ago. I have swapped GPU and RAM sticks and even a new PSU just for testing. Problems still occur as of today.
    Can anyone please help me to troubleshoot the problem please? It had been bugging me for quite a while.

    I'll really appreciate your help.

    There are no minidump files included. Please include them in your next post. There are several problem devices listed:

    Code:
    Root Print Queue    SWD\PRINTENUM\PRINTQUEUES    This device is disabled.
    NVIDIA High Definition Audio    HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10DE&DEV_0040&SUBSYS_107D2753&REV_1001\5&2EA6CA03&0&0001    This device is disabled.
    Standard PS/2 Keyboard    ACPI\PNP0303\4&2DFC4819&0    This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed.
    NVIDIA Virtual Audio Device (Wave Extensible) (WDM)    ROOT\UNNAMED_DEVICE\0000    This device is disabled.
    Microsoft PS/2 Mouse    ACPI\PNP0F03\4&2DFC4819&0    This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed.
    Please take care of the drivers. Are devices listed disabled on purpose? If so, why?

    Hello Mr Softwaremaniac, thanks for your help.
    I realised that I have trouble getting the dump files. The following message popped out. I'm sorry.

    And to answer your previous questions, I read somewhere on the internet saying that some audio drivers could be causing the BSOD, and suggested me to disable them.

    I have successfully changed the Virtual Memory size.
    After several (about 3-4 times) PC Stress Tests, I still get automated restart the second the test begin.

    I still cannot find the dump files inside my C:Windows/
    Perhaps afterall what I am facing might be a total different error?

    Did you setup the Page File to be managed automatically by Windows? Are you seeing even a flash of the Blue Screen?

    Is your option to see hidden files enabled?

    Yes I ticked the button Automated by Windows. No bluescreen. More like an immediate power out, and restart. Files not hidden as well.
    I am sorry if this does not fall under the BSOD section.

    PSU: Corsair VS650 , 18 months old.


    Edited: I tried to save the Event Logs from the Event Viewer but failed. "Error: The system cannot find the file specified."
