PC reboots continous for no reason

  rollindice 09:09 24 Sep 2006

A few days ago my PC started to reboot without a reason. It will stay on for about 20 to 30 minutes until the PC reboots again.

Every time I log on, I get a error report message saying that the system has recovered from a serious error. Details:


BCCode : 100000d1 BCP1 : 00000018 BCP2 : 00000002 BCP3 : 00000000
BCP4 : F767132A OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 2_0 Product : 256_1

Perfomed a memory test and the RAM seems fine. I also checked all connections and they also seem to be ok. Power supply should be enough as it was working before. The only change I made recently, I replaced my keyboard and mouse with a Logitech wireless mouse and keyboard.

PC specs:

AMD Athlon 64 2800+ 1.80 GHz
ABIT KV-80 Mobo
Windows XP Pro SP2
120 GB Seagate Barracuda 7.200.7 HD
ATI Radeaon 9600 Pro graphics card
LG Multi DVD Drive

Any ideas anyone?

Have you tried running your computer with the case side removed? This way you can check that your CPU fan is working properly. It maybe that your CPU is overheating.

Personally, in this situation, I would purchase a decent heatsink and fan - making sure there is sufficient gel between the CPU and heatsink. However, this may not be the problem.

I have recently had a computer with a similar problem - but mine did not reboot and the fault lay with the PSU. Never mind, this will bump you to the top again. :-)

A quick google of your BCCode would indicate a driver problem.

As you have just added the wireless key board and mouse would suggest removing these drivers and try with an ordinary keyboard and mouse.

If ok go to logitech site and download latest drivers and reinstall. Or you could update your drivers first.

100000d1 indicates driver conflict.

Update wireless keyboard and mouse drivers.

Graphichs to the desktop then uninstall your currently installed ATI Driver Fully then install clean newer downloaded version this should fix it.
