1 Answer

Self Rebooting When i am doing anything that runs my system hard, 85% of the time it self reboots like I hit the reset button. Sometimes savedump.exe is there and sometimes not. Tried new everything but a new motherboard and still the same problem. Running XP home, previously had 2k proffessional. Had the problem since I got the motherboard and case off friend.

Re: Self Rebooting

You have too much clutter in your windows regestry. Rather than doing a fresh install there are programs designed to clean up windows regestry. Here is a free download that should help:
If your system is running that hard, suggest you increase your memory.

Biostar TA790GXE 125M keeps shuting down when I boot windows, on SATA and IDE hard drives

Run the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Shut down by mouse by accident with programs still running. Will not boot up again. Yellow light on in bottom left corner. Will not come alive hitting on button.

If you are running a windows system try rebooting but continually hit f8 key. You should get to a different menu. Select 'last known good configuration' and continue. Hopefully this should fix your problem. If not please repost

I have a Gigabyte GA-945GM-S2 motherboard. I want to change the boot menu to boot from the CD. The problem is the up/down arrows won't move the highlight bar from the floppy.

I love using Gigabyte boards in my own Home Theater PCs, so I run across this problem sometimes when I'm setting them up for the first time with a USB keyboard. Pretty sure the problem you're having is the same--the BIOS isn't set to 'recognize' USB keyboards by default, so try the following:
  • Turn it off, and connect an older PS/2 style connecting KB to it;
  • Turn it back on, enter the BIOS, and find the settings page with 'USB Keyboard' in it;
  • Change that setting to BIOS rather than SYSTEM, so next time you boot, it will 'see' your USB KB. Plug in your USB KB before rebooting, then save the settings and reboot the PC again.
  • You can leave the old PS/2 KB plugged in to make sure you can change things, but try your USB keyboard out as well. You should be able to control BIOS settings upon reboot.

Hopefully this was all you needed. If it persists, be aware that some Gigabyte mobos have had BIOS issues galore (eBay is full of Gigabyte BIOS chips).

I have an asrock 880g extreme 3 the doctoor debug is coming up 85 on the led displY, THE MONITOR IS IN SLEEP MODE AND IT WONT BOOT UP

Nvidia Graphics cards can trigger this problem, can you try swapping the graphics card and rebooting to safe mode to load the vanilla drivers (F8). If that works, could be issues with the card.
You might want to reset your CMOS to default as another test, to eliminate any issues there.
Finally, If you can get it to reboot using the OLD (original card) after resetting the CMOS, try running it with the standard drivers first, it that works, then it could be a driver issue

Hi I'm having problems installing windows 7 on my computer I think it may have something dealing with my motherboard I m running a MSI P55M-GD41 mother board with intel i5-661 processor and 4GB of 2 2GB...

One bad lead will cause your computer to shut down or continue in a cycle
replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to your hard drive
hope this helps

PC spontaneously rebbots

Hi rogermx,
You’re temperature is great. No trouble there. You can try this with Windows XP. Open system properties. Click on the Advanced tab. Go down to, Startup & recovery. Click the settings button. Remove the green check mark next to: Automatically restart. Click Ok. Than restart your system. The next time you're system does a restart all by its self you should receive an error message on screen. Hopefully you have time to write it down.
Post the error message here if you can't find a fix for the error.
Windows may need the system to restart a few times before you receive an error message. Try this before I add more suggestions.

Good luck!

I would start by process of elimination.
  1. Disconnect power cord
  2. open case
  3. remove button cell battery from motherboard
  4. press power on button to dissipate any stray voltage.
  5. re-install button cell battery.
  6. re-connect power cord
  7. power up pc.
If everything powers up ok and you get a CMOS checksum error, then enter bios set date,time etc. and go.

if the power on self test comes on and still no keyboard,mouse,video etc and no beeps. It may be your board or the processor.
