[Moved] computer troubleshooting Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

A while ago my computer started randomly rebooting and when it would start up, during the windows loading screen it would reboot itself 3 or 4 times before going through the whole thing without rebooting. I formatted and reinstalled a couple times, didn't fix it so I figured it was a hardware thing. I haven't changed anything with the hardware for a while so I figure something is dying, probably the motherboard... System was a 600mhz but I went into the bios and set it to run at 400mhz and it stopped rebooting at random times, works fine now. Anyone know what the problem is or how I could fix it?

On some intelligent motherboards, when your cpu starts to overheat it will shut itself down. I had one of these.. It was because the fan went out and the cpu overheated a lot. I ended up burning it up because I didnt realize it at the time. You should check your fans to make sure they are working. Also if a stick of ram goes bad, your computer will reboot if it tries to access that stick. Disable the fastscan thing in your bios, (or enable full scanning or whatever its called in your bios) and let the computer scan all your ram. It will tell you if a stick is bad.
