Computer random resets

  luke_mullet 22:30 29 Nov 2004

from time to time my computer will reset, this normally comes when i play a game or do something to use a lot of the computer. I do not get an error message it just resets.

Ive got norton systemworks and it says that there is nothing wrong with the computer.

Some people have said to me its the PSU others have said its the CPU. Its really starting to annoy me as i can not work out why its doing it. have an AMD XP 3000 and a 400w PSU.

Right-click on My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab. Under Startup & Recovery click Settings. Under System Failure untick the box in front of Automatically restart.

Then post the error message the next time that it does this.

I have had a similar problem with automatic reboots. Have now unticked the auto restart box as suggetsed by VoG - but where do I find the system log that is supposed to be generated on each system failure? I should have plenty of entries by now but can't find anything.

Control Panel, Admin. Tools, Event Viewer, System.

Highlight an Event, Action, Properties.

This will give a description and the opportunity to submit to Microsoft.

It sounds that you are being "dumped" of Memory.... How much memory (RAM) have you got and what is the processor's speed??

It's an error report dump. It's just saying where it's put it!
