Hi, my pc is working fine now. I stuck another fan in the case and it helped no end. It still restarted but no where near as often. Then I updated the bios and i have not had a problem since. Thanks for the help. I do not mean to take sides but, i did take the cover of my pc and it worked fine.

To stop it from restarting, and so you can log errors, go to Start, run and type in sysdm.cpl then OK.

On the Advanced tab, under Startup and Recovery click Settings, and under System Failure uncheck Automatically Restart.

(This is for XP)

That won't fix anything, but will stop it from restarting on every error it encounters and allow you to resolve any issues.

The setting I supplied should be done anyway, so if it encounters an error you will get a blue screen and can write down and investigate it, otherwise it will just reboot with no information.

This should be done on any XP computer, but then again, you don't know much about computers, do you LamePunter?

Hi, i have tried to disable that restart thingy but it just freezes and nothing else happens. That was before the problem was solved! All is fine now. I also think you guys need to chill out a bit!

KoolKid, you have a problem that hasn't been resolved yet, anyway good luck.


LamePunter, I thought of heat before you even posted, but I disregarded it because unless you only use the PC for gaming and nothing else, then the problem would occur in general use.

Gaming stresses the [b]G[/b]PU, and to a much smaller extent the CPU.

General use like audio, DVD and video stresses the CPU much more.

Anyway, in the end it wasn't heat, so you were wrong again.

I actually give you some credit for admitting you were wrong on the vacuum cleaner, but try to accept that you are also misguided on the heat issue.

No go and do your vacuuming.
