save ur files and then restore ur os
i had the same problem on my gateway. i asked gateway support and they said its a virus and i said that norton didnt find it? i cleared my hard drive and it never restarted by itself again
Hello, this is my first post. I have a continuous problem with my PC. It keeps restarting itself.
- XP Professional
- 400w PSU
- 80gig Hard Drive
- DVDRW Drive
- 2 x 512 DDR Ram
- ATI Radeon 9200 Graphics Card
- Linksys Wireless Network Adaptor
- Firewire PCI Card
Everytime I try and do something on my PC it restarts itself. For example if i play a game, if i burn a CD/DVD. i have a DVD creating software that came with the firewire card that i use to burn homemade DVDs (well i try to anyway) and during the burning process, it restarts. i have a gut feeling that its my 400w PSU. i'm saying this because it has thermal control. ive tryed to disable thermal control in my BIOS, but i cant get to that specific setting.
What really gets to me is that when i try and change my screen resolution from display settings, it restarts.
i have a strong feeling that its my PSU. Help!!!
