Alright first here's what I got:

ASUS A7N8X Deluxe
2500+ XP Athlon
ATI Radion 9500
500W Power Supply.

Anyway, the problem I'm getting is that randomly my computer will just completely shut off & restart itself. I knwo the MB has a feature on it to shut down if it gets too hot but wouldn't that shut it off completely not restart it? It just seems to happen at random time, but getting progressively worse (once every day or 2). Also, usually the first time it restarts, when windows boots up it gets about halfway then half of the stuff won't boot up and I can't do anything so i hafta hit the reset buttom on my computer and then the 2nd time it usually boots up fine.

Anyone know of any good tests or where I can go look at some logs maybe on my computer to see if I can find out what's actually wrong it?

Welcome to TSF: :smile:


The first thing I would look into would be temps / download and run sandra lite (free & in my signature)

as soon as you get booted up run sandra and post your temps and voltages readings in here for evaluation by the techs. you should report your system temps, cpu temps and voltages

take one set of readings upon a frsh restart and take another after multitasking for 20 minutes / run defrag, anti virus scanner, and spyware scanner all at once ~ ~ ~ after about 15 minutes of multitasking take you readings again.

also please post the brand psu you have ????

regards

joe

The one that look ridiculously high is the "Power / Aux Temperature : 126.0°C (Min 126.0°C; Avg 126.0°C; Max 126.0°C)"

What exactly is that telling me?
About the PSU, I can't remember the exact brand name of it:sad: .
It was something like a Coolmaster or something like that I purchased off NCIX and i can't seem to find it on their site, but it was about 2 years ago probably.

Again thanks,
I really hope I can get this fixed:grin:
