SOURCE: Random Restart or Computer Freeze

what you did is OK for minor fixes. mostly for application error.
you need to format the hard drive and install the OS again in order the OS to work properly. you may have some file that is left over that is cusing the shut-down.

SOURCE: PC rebooting randomly when connected to our wireless account

Check to see if you nieghbor is not playing tricks on you. This sounds rel fishy that your computer reboots when connected to this guys router. Some one is loading something as soon as it is connected. Try loading it with you wireless acount instead of the nieghbors. Also make sure you have your current antvirus and firewalls loaded. But also check to see if Conflicker is an issue, this is a new virus that uses other computers as robots causing them to reboot and install software and make them do all kinds of illgal activites and this one writes to the bios.

Hope this information give you some idea please rate accordenly thanks.

Possibly what you thought was a virus was actually early signs of this very instability. Back up everything you care about on that machine at once! Then run diagnostics (google some good download sites and do the downloads to a floppy or CD on the other machine). You are probably looking at buying a replacement (few eMachines are worth repairing)

this problem occurs if your computers cooling is not as its necessary to be.try useing it with an open cabinet and see if the problem persists. if the problem still persists remve ur CPU fan and place some heat sink fluid and place it back on the cpu. then all your problems should be gone.
use a good antivirus to check for any viruses before this(just in case)

That's usually a damaged system file or a bad sector on your hdd. I recommend booting of your xp disk go to recovery console once you boot and run chkdsk /p and reboot when done.

IMac 27, 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5 randomly shuts down or reboots without warning. Apple has replaced power supply and Ram, but no help.


That sounds like a heating issue. I would pull the back cover and make sure the small fan moves freely. Get a bottle of CLEAN air and blow it out. Otherwise...I have no idea.

Good day everyone,what is the cause of pc that suddenly shuts down without any warning,after a few minutes i turn it on again same thing happen,i noticed two bad caps get puffy and i changed it,but it


This is hard to find out without having the hardware at a hand. For example, even though you dust it off, maybe the memory slots are still dirty, also is always a good idea to clean the memories edge with a pencil eraser. Another thing that could be causing this problem is that maybe your cooler fan is not working at the right speed, making the computer freeze or even shut down without notice. The same thing goes for the processor.
If you know a bit about computer, go into the BIOS and set everything to default, reboot. Good luck.

Computer randomly shutsdown without warning


option-1:
Many times battery indicator may show good, but in reality life of the battery might have gone down.

option-2:

My computer reboots without warning while playing online videos or browsing the net. First it happens after working fine for some time and then it starts happening frequently. I have Windows XP media...


as my knowledge if the computer restarting by themselves always there are some error occured in this one area possibility :

1. error in software
2. error in hardware
3. error by virus infected
4. operating system issue

BUT :).. if u get this trouble after take some advennture in networld/network.. i suggest u computer ar sugessted with "blaster virus" the virus are written to reboot your computer without warning. Usually these viruses will make the computer reboot ever 5, 10, 15 or 30 minutes after the computer has booted. so the best way is update your security first
that is the first step

the second :i suggest u to run your computer in safe mode wait for several minutes if not reboot while running safe mode follow this step :
  1. From the desktop right-click on My Computer.
  2. Click the Properties option.
  3. In the System Properties window click the Advanced tab.
  4. In Advanced click the Settings button under Startup and Recovery.
  5. In the Startup and Recovery window uncheck the Automatically restart check box.
  6. Click Ok.
if still rebooting in safe mode there the issue is likely not software related but something else

the third :hardware devices that are not installed properly in the computer can also cause random reboots. Make sure all the cables and expansion cards are connected properly to the computer. The best way to determine this is to disconnect and reconnect all cables and expansion cards.

If after following each of the above recommendations your computer still continues to reboot it is likely that you are experiencing a Microsoft Windows operating system related issue that cannot be explained. To help make sure this is the case please try the below steps.
  1. Reboot the computer and enter CMOS setup as the computer is booting. If you are not familiar with how to enter CMOS please read through document CH000192.
  2. After you have loaded the computer in CMOS setup let the com sit
hope u luck

Computer Randomly Cuts off


processor overheating. When it gets too hot it automatically shuts your pc down and boots it back up. Even if the fan is running, it could not be supplying enough cool air anymore.

Computer crash and restart


Windows restarts without warning
Cause:
This issue could be caused by any of the below possibilities.
Software issue or error.
Hardware issue or error.
Heat related issue.
Computer virus.
Issue with operating system.

Answer:

Software issue or error
Errors generated by software programs can cause a computer to reboot unexpectedly or without warning. If you are running Windows XP see the below section "For Windows XP users" before continuing.
If you are not running Windows XP or following the below steps still cause your computer to reboot without warning. Boot your computer into Safe Mode, and let the computer run in Safe Mode.

If the computer is still rebooting in Safe Mode the issue is likely not software related but something else, skip to the next section. If the computer is not rebooting in Safe Mode it is likely you have software related issue. We would recommend you run through the basic troubleshooting section for your operating system.
For Windows XP users
Windows XP is designed to automatically reboot each time an error occurs such as a BSoD. Although this may be nice for errors that do not occur often, users who have a re-occurring error may wish to identify the error to troubleshoot it. Below are the steps on how this feature can be disabled and enabled in Windows XP.
From the desktop right-click on My Computer.
Click the Properties option.
In the System Properties window click the Advanced tab.
In Advanced click the Settings button under Startup and Recovery.
In the Startup and Recovery window uncheck the Automatically restart check box.
Click Ok.
Now if the computer generates and error it should not automatically restart and enable you to display any errors your computer may be experiencing.
Hardware issue or error
Any failing hardware component in your computer could cause your computer to unexpectedly generate an error and/or reboot without warning. If you have recently attempted to add a new hardware device, remove that device to make sure it is not causing your issues.
Make sure you are not encountering any hardware conflicts by viewing Device Manager for errors.

New drivers can also cause this issue, if you have recently performed any hardware driver updates you may wish to try an earlier version of the drivers.

If you have updated drivers and removed any hardware that could be causing this issue and continue to experience random reboots, it's possible that the memory is bad in the computer.

Finally, hardware devices that are not installed properly in the computer can also cause random reboots. Make sure all the cables and expansion cards are connected properly to the computer. The best way to determine this is to disconnect and reconnect all cables and expansion cards.
Computer virus
Computer viruses such as the blaster virus are written to reboot your computer without warning. Usually these viruses will make the computer reboot ever 5, 10, 15 or 30 minutes after the computer has booted.
If you believe your computer may be infected with a virus or are uncertain if your computer is infected with a virus make sure your virus scanner definitions are up to date.

Heat related issue
Many computer today are designed to turn off or automatically reboot if the computer, processor, or other device in your computer gets to hot. If you have heard any abnormal noises coming from your computer recently such as a high squealing this could indicate a fan may be failing in your computer.
You can first start by verifying the fan on the power supply is working by examining the back of the computer and seeing if the fan is moving and moving smoothly. For all other fans in the computer you will need to either open the computer and make sure the fan are working (processor fan and case fan) and/or if your BIOS monitors the RPM of the fans enter BIOS and make sure the BIOS does not report any errors.
Users may also be able to determine how hot their computer is by onboard thermal sensors, if your computer comes equipped with these sensors make sure your CPU is not running to hot.
Issue with operating system
If after following each of the above recommendations your computer still continues to reboot it is likely that you are experiencing a Microsoft Windows operating system related issue that cannot be explained. To help make sure this is the case please try the below steps.
Reboot the computer and enter CMOS setup as the computer is booting.
After you have loaded the computer in CMOS setup let the computer sit.
If the computer does not reboot while letting the computer sit in CMOS it is likely that you are in fact experiencing an issue with Microsoft Windows and it is recommend that if you have followed all of the above recommendations that you reinstall your version of Microsoft Windows.
