Hello, I'm having a bit of a problem here, hope you can help me find what part of the computer is behind this.
For the past month, I've seen my computer restart on its own spontaneously about once or twice a week. Then yesterday I got home to a computer with a frozen window, mouse and keyboard not responding at all so I restarted but the computer would not start, the fans were working but no beeps and no monitor response.
Tried reseating the RAM and unplugging everything but the motherboard but still nothing, so I'm thinking it's either the motherboard or the PSU, but I really can't be sure and I can't really afford to buy both of those things in order to find out who the culprit is. So any help would be much appreciated.
Here are my computer specs or at least, those I couldn't find out :
ACER Aspire M5640-E5511A
- couldn't find the motherboard model/brand name CPU : intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 RAM : 4GB DDRII Video : integrated graphics PSU : no idea.
Maybe EIST , Enhanced Intel Speedstep Technology, is not enabled in power options, these sites may explain how to check for and enable EIST, so that the processor is not running at full speed when idle
