CMOS Battery?

In reply to: My computer restart very frequently

sounds like you may need to check your CMOS battery. Is your time resetting as well?

Time doesn't need to reset..

In reply to: CMOS Battery?

Time doesn't need to reset, computer's showing right time at startup. So i think cmos battery is fine. I thought this at first but i changed the idea coz it is showing right time.

And I didn't cleaned like its told in the forum/Vedio. Cleaning means.. I checked for viruses. throughly scaned for them and killed those viruses. Checked for malware/spywares.

I have downloaded latest vedio/chipset drivers and installed. But problem still persist.

I would reconsider.

In reply to: Time doesn't need to reset..

I would heed Bob's advice about cleaning the inside of the computer.

That STOP error code could point to faulty hardware, and the most common fault is over-heating. Open the case, remove all the dust with an air spray, and make sure all the fans are freely spinning and are working OK.

When was the last time you did that? I do mine every year.

Cleaning software

In reply to: I would reconsider.

I cleaned software about a week ago. and about hardware i didn't cleaned it. its been 2 years now. Does cleaning hardware work?

I don't have air spray.

I have one fan (over processor) and to keep system cool i have removed one side of the cabinet.
Are you familiar with technical information/codes as those error codes i have described in my problem?
