A faulty memory board OR failing memory slot can also cause spontaneous rebooting. Try removing/swapping memory boards, so that all combinations of the (up to) 3 boards to the 3 slots are fully tested and yo ucan isolate whether the problem moves with the memory board or stays consistent to the slot(s - you may have multiple problems with more than one card and/or slot!).
A useful approach is to make a grid chart with the cards (labeled A, B, C) across the top and slots (listed as 1, 2, 3) along the side, and track your test results consistently. Be sure to complete all possible permutations so that you have the most information to determine your results by, as a premature decision can lead you to a incomplete and possible more expensive conclusion!
Good luck.

To me it does not sound like an overheated CPU...but could be. My best guess would be the powersupply shorting out. I had repaired a computer that was doing something similar to what you are describing and it turned out to be the power supply unit. I would try swapping out the power supply from another computer if you have one and see if it still has the same problem. If it does then you can disconnect the cd-rom drive and see if it stops the problem. It is possible that one of the hardware components is the cause. Also check the motherboard screws that hold the board to the case are tight. If they are loose this can cause a grounding issue with the computer. Also use a can of compressed air to clean out the inside of the case of dust and dirt...this can also cause problems.

It could be an overheating CPU problem.
When the CPU in the computer or laptopoverheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot upagain until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then theCPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

Here is a listing. From what I read, it seems to me the problem is in the CPU and that it is overheating. This can be caused by a multitude of issues but first ensure the CPU fan is running. Second, if you applied too much siver heat sink, this can cause overheating as well. Make sure you only have a thin layer between the CPU and the heatsink. Hope this helps.

Computer reboots


Hi cool,

Is your Computer keeps on recycling from booting and never finish to load your OS?

As far as i know you got a problem with you CPU, your computer processor is overheating inside that's why it keeps your PC recycling it's power.

Try to go to the BIOS setup menu, and go to the cpu temperature and you will that your PC is heating up.

Hope it helps & give you an exact reason.

Enjoy.


tnx

Windows xp pro keeps rebooting after loading mup.sys


Can you boot into safe mode? If not then the reason it continually reboots may not be software. I've seen a number of laptops that exhibit the behavior because the CPU is overheating. Intel CPU's shut themselves down before they burn up. If you're comfortable opening the laptop you might try cleaning out the CPU cooling system. They tend to get clogged up with dust so that there is no airflow to cool the CPU.
