Pc Restarting Problem


Recommended Posts

Hi

I am really tired of finding out actually what's the problem with my PC.

My computer runs smoothly. After a few days or hours, it freezes or restarts automatically.

Once the problem occured, it never starts again.

To start it, I just open the CPU fan, pull out the CPU and place all of them in their former position.

I Restart the computer and lol........ it starts working in a normal way.

It goes for about a few hours or days, and the same problem again.

How long should I go on doing all this? Help me, please.

:blink: you know, i had similar problems like that with an old graphics card.

how old is your system? if its old, it may just be dying.

if its 7+ years old, replace the battery on the motherboard. also check all cables to make sure they're seated, nothings touching something it shouldn't be, etc and so forth.

What kind of CPU, mobo and heatsink are you using? Did this just all of a sudden start happening or what? Have you monitored the temp on your CPU? (yes, I know... CPU heat isn't always the answer... just getting the basics)

Overheating. Heatsink not in good contact with the CPU.

Get some thermal compound and apply a thin layer, and also make sure the heatsink is seated squarely on the CPU top.

Thanks a lot to all of you.

What is this 'thermal compound' stuff to apply? Guide me please.

My PC configuration:

CPU: Intel Pentium IV 2.8 ghz

Mainboard: Intel 865 gbf

RAM: 512 mb

Purchased: 2 years ago

Also disable Automatic restart so that the PC is forced to blue screen, may give you and us some more information to work on.

Also load fail safe defaults in the bios, or it is sometimes refered to as Optimsed Defaults.

How to disable Automatic Restart:

Go to My Computer, right click on go to Properities.

When it opens the System Properties, click on Advanced, and click on the Settings button under Startup and Recovery. Under System Failure, uncheck Automatically Restart.
