PowerSpec G706 Issue with not turning on and randomly shutting off

edited January 2021 in General Discussion
I had just recently bought the PowerSpec G706, and after playing a few games of Rainbow 6, the PC would just shutdown randomly. I consulted with some friends who are pretty smart with computers and they recommended to update the drivers, in which I did. After that, I just shut my computer down for the night and when I woke up to hop on the game, the PC would not turn on. I tried everything from changing outlets to unplugging and replugging cords back in. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Greetings. Are you getting any lights or fans to start up at all? You can try power cycling it by doing the following to see if it would make any change:

    • Turn off your computer
    • Unplug the power cable to the computer from the back
    • Hold the power button of your computer while it is unplugged for 30 seconds and then release
    • Plug the power cable back into the computer
    • Power on the computer
    • Check for any changes

    Once you get it back on, you might also try checking your XMP profile in your BIOS. Mine (on a G466) was set to 3600MHz out of the box, which isn't supported by the processor it came with, and caused me to crash randomly while playing games as well. Turning off the XMP/switching it to "Auto" fixed the issue for me.

    During the shutdowns, would the system stay off or reboot?
