Question about ASUS A7V8X Motherboard
On normal usage the Asus 1005 was working fine. On 2 nights I left it continuously powered on and the laptop was connected to the power supply throughout the night.
On both occasions the laptop started restarting automatically in the early morning. I ran a disk check on C: nd then booted up using the safe mode. After that it stabilized. This morning was the second instance. Should I return it ?
is there any issue with the battery being charged for too long ???
No yr battery should be fine but i would try a restore as it may b an update that has caused the problem give it a try and see how it goes

I believe that I've found the answer. Notsosure's link to the Toshiba thread really helped in figuring out the logic behind this mess.
What's happening is that certain capacitors on the motherboard that regulate the current of the CPU have started to fail. So whenever the CPU changes its clock speed or multiplier, the capacitors do not deliver the required voltage to it and the CPU malfunctions. This causes the system to reboot. Some users have fixed the issue by replacing the faulty capacitors (they are located directly behind the CPU socket on the motherboard).
Intel refers to this throttling technology as Speedstep. Windows Safe Mode seems to not use this CPU function which is why the system doesn't reboot in that mode. Disabling all the processors in Device Manager prevents normal Windows mode from using it as well. As long as the CPU doesn't use Speedstep, no spontaneous reboots will occur.
