Question about Systemax Venture PC Desktop

Computer rebooting My pc has started rebooting at odd intervals. I may or may not be using it at the time. Also when I shut it down for the night and then re-start in the mornings it re-boots several times before reaching the desktop. I have run my antivirus scan and that comes up clean. I have also done the defrag thing. I have not installed any new programs. My anti-virus program is the CA security system. My pc has just gone out of it's 1 yr warrenty. Someone said it may be that my hard drive is failing?

More often than not a rebooting computer is a power problem. Either your power supply is failing or the voltage regulation circuitry on your motherboard is failing. The power supply is much easier and cheaper to replace, make sure you get a good one though, you don't want to skimp on a power supply. Get something with over 400 Watts and that feals heavy and solid, don't get something that feels light and flimsy.

You motherboard would be more difficult to replace and really only makes sense if you can get the exact same motherboard for replacement. Otherwise you would have to reinstall Windows and make sure all your things are compatible with the other motherboard.

FIRST of all I would consider upgrading all your device drivers, go to SystemMax's support page for you computer model and download and install all available drivers. A corrupted driver can cause Windows to lock up and reboot.

I shut my computer down at night, but can't get on Internet next


There is no reason to shut down either the router or modem. My router and modem has power 24/7 with no issues for many years. Just leave them powered.

My computer reboots without warning at different intervals


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)

Frozon screen


Always use CRTL/ALT/DELETE to shut it down when something like that happens.
It damages the HDD if you do not shut it down correctly.
Unplug the power cable from the computer and let it sit over night. Plug it back in.
is your computer XP or Vista?
please let me know.
Thanks!

Serious error


Try opening your computer and cleaning the fans around the CPU and the other fans in your system. Computers have a sensor that shut computers down when they get too hot. Clean all the dirt inside and you should see a little performance boost also.

On shutting down my laptop it gave the message, "installing 1 of 1" do not turn off your computer. It did not turn off all night. I turned it off by using the on/off button then shut it down...


When you start your laptop, press F8. You will get a menu (Normal boot, Reboot...). Choose Last good known configuration (something like that).

Computer Still Shuts down


Try running a check Disc on the system drive go to start programs run and type in cmd once there type (chkdsk C:/x) exactly like that with the X say yes to the prompt that ask you if you want to dismount the volume, if it asks you if you want to run it the next time the system reboots say yes and reboot. It should start running before the computer logs on. Kick back and relax it takes between 2 and 3 hours to finish. If this doesn't work it might be a hardware issue.
