Why does my computer keep restarting?

It's either running hot, you have a device conflict or a virus.

Try running a virus scan to make sure it's not kicking you off. Check your devices in the device manager to make sure all drivers are loaded.

Remove the power cord, remove the case, take a can of compressed air and blow out the dust from inside the computer, around the vents, around the fans.

If it still runs hot after the above steps, remove the fan that is on top of the CPU and Heat Sink. Clean the dust and apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste to the CPU and Heat Sink.

It's too slow.

Add more memory, upgrade the processor, or buy a new computer.

Overheating intel 915 2.8ghz processor 50degrees

The overheating problem (ie. thermal shutdown) is most likely caused by a faulty CPU fan or dust clogging the CPU fan and heatsink.
Check the BIOS CPU fan speed could be set too low, check the fan speed/temperature setting.
If this problem is not fixed, then the CPU will eventually fail.
Check the fan to see if it spins freely, if not then replace the faulty fan.
If the fan and heatsink are cligged with dust, loosen and remove the dust and use a can of compress air to blow away the dust.

About 4 weeks ago my computer started having a problem while playing games. The game would work fine for about 5-10 minutes then it would lag to about 2 frames/sec. I've looked all over online and the only...

Have you opened the computer up and checked the fans for dust. As you say, those are clasic overheating symptoms
Use a small brush and a vaccum cleaner, or a can of compressed air(air duster) to clean your pc's fans.

My Dell Inspiron 1525 keeps turning off while being used. It is usually when trying to play a online game or on Facebook. Could it be overheating? The keyboard seems to be getting a bit warm, but not any...

Download CPUIS's hardware Monitor ( it's free). Install and run. If the CPU temp gets higher than 60 C when idle or 85 at any time, you ahve an overheating issue. If CPU tem reaches 100 C, windows will shut down.

You may need to clean it up if you haven't done so in a while. Turn the laptop off, remove the AC charger cord and the battery. Remove the bottom cover and blow compressed air from a can (compressed air cans can be bought at Walmart, Best Buy, Radio Shack, etc.). Be sure you remove all dust and lint. Check the fan can be easily moved with fingers. Replace cover, battery, AC charger cord and restart laptop. Check temp again.

BTW, if you're running 3D games, online or not, get yourself a desktop. Laptops are a bad choice for gaming, since videocards can reach 100 C during some heavily demanding 3D games.

Laptop just randomly shuts off

Probably overheating. Are you playing games when it shuts off?
Turn the laptop off, remove the bottom cover, blow compressed air from a compressed air can to remove dust and lint. Check that the fan can move easily. Replace the cover. Restart the laptop. Download Hardware Monitor from and install. Run the program and check for CPU temp. It should never be higher than 85 C when heavy gaming or calculations are running. If temp gets to 95-100 C, Windows and or the CPU will shut down automatically to protect the CPU and laptop from any damage. As far as I know, there is no way to disable this feature.

Computer crashes when playing games

you have ruled out the video card
and since cooling does not seem to be an issue on you cpu, your next step is to switch your power supply
after that one is ruled out,
your next replacement is your motherboard.

good luck man!

PC restarts automatically without error message

Sounds like you may have a virus. There are many good free online scanners. For instance try Trendmicro's housecall or Panda online scanner or the one from Symantec.
A great virus program is Antivir. There is a free edition.
Let us know if you need more help.

Shuting dow, restart

3D Games are very processor intensive and combined with your graphics card can produce a lot of heat. Check the temperature of the CPU, it is probably too hot. You will have to check online to find the max temp of your specific processor. To check the temparature you can either use a program like sisoft SANDRA ($$$) or speedfan (FREE), or when your PC restarts, you can go into your bios setup and find your internal temperatures there. If it is too hot, open the case and make sure that the inside is not blanketed with dust. Speedfan will tell you how fast your fans are spinning, and you may need to replace one, or add one. I am nearly certain that the resets are caused by to go about cooling it is another problem altogether.

System is restarting

sounds like over heating...check your fans, specifically the CPU fan to make sure they are running. if they are, reboot your computer into the BIOS (generally by tapping the delete key while the initial POST screen shows) and find the screen that tells you the running temp.
let us know the temp that it is running at.
