    For no reson at all my computer reboots. I could be making a post here on CK5 or watching TV, then all of a sudden this f*cken computer will reboot it's self. It's getting real annoying when I'm in the middle of doing something. Any idea what is cousing this ??? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    make sure your computer isn't overheating. You might have a virus too. If you have a virus and it can't be fixed, you will have to reformat.

    i recently lost my entire home network to the iworm. funniest part is that i have run updates for grisoft and mcafee and neither one can find or stop it. grisoft tagged it once right before the s hit the fan. mcafee has yet to be of any use and i now have three very large, very expensive paper weights. think im gonna say f'it and start over. would be nice to get some of my photos off the new computer before i take a sledge to it though. oh well. make sure that your updates are current to at least this week. my mcafee won't update anymore and only updated to the day before i got hacked so its worthless.


    that other idea sounds good, too- check your cpu temp to make sure your not shutting down automatically.

    Mine used to do that, theres a thing in xp that causes a re-boot (instead of the blue-screen of death) during a critical failure. I don't rember how I turned it off but I did till I fixed the problem

    I would guess either overheating but more like a dying power supply. The voltage can get low causing the mother board to reboot.

    I'm back !!! It turned out to be a hardware problem. Some capasitars on the mother board went bad. But anyways, IBM replaced the mother board free of charge. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I really don't care if you can't spell the word "be" or have grammar worse than a monkey on acid. But when I go to the NASA webpage to find out what "capasitars" are, then you may want to sit down with a dictionary for a few hours...... /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
