The BSOD (blue screen) is most often caused by a bad driver and sometimes by ram. Your computer can shut down suddenly if it's overheating but generally when it's from overheating it will start stuttering...running jerkily...before it shuts off. The screen will semi lock up, things run slow. Obviously it will also feel hot either to the touch or at least the air coming out will be hot or not moving at all. Heat is caused by a bad fan or fans including a bad cpu fan. Of course heat is a big problem.

Though you can adjust when the machine shuts down as a saftey precaution that you still need to address the overheating problem itself. A fan may need to be replaced or you may need additional air flow ie additional fans.

A major cause of heat is a dirty fan due to dust, pet hair etc. Computers, including laptops, need to be cleaned out periodically.

I would look into these issues before worrying about cmos adjustments unless you have changed the settings and this was the result.

Break BIOS Password
A user may also put a BIOS password preventing you to even enter the system but if you wish to access the system do not worry we you can still do it. However, I only recommend this trick for your own personal use.
What is BIOS?
Bios stands for Basic Input Output System and is a firmware code run by a PC when first powered on, which is a type of boot loader. The primary function of the BIOS is to identify and initialize system component hardware (such as the video display card, hard disk, and floppy).
How to Break a BIOS Password?
The following steps work absolutely fine for a Desktop and are the easiest of all.
Steps:
• Shut down the computer and take out all the plugs connected to electricity.
• Open up the CPU cabinet and locate the CMOS battery on the motherboard (it will be a silver circular battery just like a button cell).

Remove the battery and keep it out for some 2-3 minutes as this will flush out the CMOS memory which stores the BIOS password and all other configurations.
• Now place the battery back and start the computer normally.
Steps for Laptop:
• Open up the BIOS at the time of booting.
• There are some backdoor passwords which the manufacturing company had set that will be accepted by the BIOS. You will just need to know the make of your BIOS. Try out the passwords from these lists.
List of Award BIOS backdoor passwords:
BIOSTAR, AWARD_SW, AWARD SW, AWARD PW, CONDO, LKWPETER, J262, 01322222
List of AMI BIOS backdoor passwords:
AMI, AAAMMMIII, BIOS, PASSWORD, A.M.I., CONDO
List of PHOENIX BIOS backdoor passwords:
phoenix, PHOENIX, CMOS, BIOS

Try removing the CMOS jumper on the motherboard located near the CMOS battery, power the system up for about 5-10 seconds, then shut it down, replace the jumper. if that doesn't help, then you need to flash your BIOS to the latest version for your model computer, check your computer manufacturers website for the BIOS update, and be sure to follow the instructions carefully, as to this can damage your computer, if you do not know how to flash the BIOS, take it to your local computer repair shop.

Reset the BIOS on a Compaq server 740 jumpers settings


Don,t do that insatead:
Entering the BIOS Setup menu Entering the BIOS Setup menu requires pressing a specific key at a specific time. If you fail to enter the Setup menu on your first try, repeat the following steps until you are successful:
  1. Close all applications that are currently running and restart the computer by clicking Start , Shut Down , Restart the Computer , and then OK .
  2. When the red Compaq logo or blue HP logo screen appears, press the F10 key on the keyboard to enter the Setup menu.

NOTE: An alternate to the above steps, especially if the logo screen disappears too quickly to enter BIOS, is to shut down (turn off) the computer. Wait 30 seconds, turn the power on and press F10 or F1 at the logo screen. Reloading the default settings Complete the following steps to reload the factory installed BIOS Setup settings:
  1. In the BIOS Setup utility, select the Exit tab.
  2. Select Load Setup Defaults .
  3. Select Save Changes and Exit (pressing F5 and the Enter key will also load the Setup Defaults).
  4. Press Esc and then Enter to exit Setup.

Sir,

Let's try to get into BIOS Setup Utility,(some just call it BIOS, but you can't change your BIOS program, only some settings). AS SOON as you push the power button on, press F1. This should take you to a blue & red screen that's reminiscent of DOS. No? Okay restart computer,(CTRL+ALT+Delete keys at same time), and press Delete. Each manufacturer has it's own setting made for them by the BIOS manufacturer,(Award, AMI, Phoenix, etc.) Might be F2,F10. To further explain this, let me direct you to this page at Hardwaresecrets.com: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/6 When you get into BIOS Setup, look across the top headings for Password Option. I'm willing to bet a computer, of this age's BIOS program, has it there. If not, use the Up/Down arrow key/s to 'highlight' Standard BIOS Setup,(or CMOS Setup), and look, Advanced BIOS Setup, and on through the submenu's. It sounds complicated to explain, but it's not. Read the 'navigation' panel at the bottom to move around. You won't affect anything if you don't press Enter, and Save It to CMOS, so don't fret. When you find the Password Option, use your Up/Down key/s to highlight it, press Enter. This will take you into a submenu for it. It will say Yes/No, or ON/OFF. Click on No, or OFF. Press the ESC key to go back to the main menu, then press the F10 key to Save to CMOS, anf press the y key,(shows a upper case Y, just use lower case). Your computer will restart, Windows will load back up, and the password thing will be gone!

Thanks
Good Luck

Computer turns off and restarts again during the operation repeately.


Hi 2gerr, when you tested the board, was the board outside of the you're case?
Here is one suggestion you can try. Start the PC & press the F5 key every two seconds untill Windows Advanced Options Menu
is displayed on you're screen. You can not use you're mouse here. Use the up & down arrow keys & slide to, Disable automatic restart on system failure. Than press enter. What this should do for you is stop windows from restarting & give you time to catch what is causing windows to restart. If you receive a blue screen with an error message write it down. Press the pause key on the keyboard so you'll have time to write down the error message. It would not hurt to enter you're bios and turn off hault on all errors listed in the main menu of the bios.
Another could be the back side of the board could be touching the case. You can add a piece of a paper bag under the board.
Stopping a possible short. Lastly, enter you're bios & go the hardware monitor. Open hardware monitor & leave it there. Shut off you're monitor & walk away for about 10 minutes or so coming back from time to time & check the temp of you're CPU & mother board temp. Staying in the bios, let me know if the PC restarts.
