Pls check:

  • if CPU heatsink fan turning;
  • if heatsink is flat on CPU and tight;
  • if PSU exhaust fan turning;
  • if Video Card heatsink fan turning;
  • with a voltmeter, pls check consistency of the yellow and red wires (+12 and +5);
  • pls inspect capacitors near the CPU, none should be blistered, bulging are leaking;
  • remove the HDD connection and observe it will restart, if no, then probably a driver/software issue.

My internet explorer is often getting restart.. and when i open visual studio, i couldn't work in it more than 5 or 6 mins. system itself getting restart..

that would be due to a hardware issue, um, could be a CPU overheat issue, since intel boards support a feature that will foece your system to restart when the processor reches its highest temp. Another issue could be your system memory ( RAM ) could be half dead and also your video card could be bad and last but not least it could just be windows needing to be reinstalled too. To know for sure you will need to bring it in somewhere and tell them what is going on

I have a gigabyte desktop board GA-8I865GME-775 it was working well for last 2 year now it got a problem which is new to me. and it that when i start system it works well for 30-40 min. then automatically...

The power supply inside the cabinet(CPU) called SMPS needs to be replaced. Also the internal battery on the MB needs replacement. As an after thought, check the keyboard for any key remaining depressed after hitting the key. Just use a friends working keyboard after replacing the SMPS & int. battery & check for repetition of the same sound. If it does not beep then buy a new keyboard too.....sodeep

HI - benimur

  • fans, OK;
  • PSU, new;
  • HDD, disconnected;
  • ad no part/component heating up (barely touchable).

that leaves us only three possibilities:
  • motherboard (most likely);
  • memory (likely);
  • CPU (least likely)

Hi - Benimur

Hi again,

If your motherboard is for a desktop, there would often be a 3 terminal jumper very near the Lithium battery marked CMOS Reset. A jumper is currently positioned shorting one end and the center, temporarily removing this jumper and moving it to the opposite end/pair would reset the CMOS/BIOS. Alternately, you can also remove the 3.0Volts coin size battery for about 30 minutes wold reset the CMOS/BIOS.

Hi Benimur


Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

To your concern, initially pls try:
  • remove the memory sticks;
  • clean both slots with a clean dry toothbrush/paintbrush. You could also use a can of compressed air or an electronic contact cleaner spray;
  • clean the little gold pins of the memory using a pencil eraser.
  • If the above is not sufficient to address the issue, pls try resetting your CMOS/BIOS to default condition.
This is of course assuming that there is no hardware fault.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Asus p4pe

Your computer is getting too hot. Get canned air and spray all the dust out, especially the dust in and around the proccessor and heatsink (big metal grille).
Then move the computer off shaggy carpet and move it several inches away from the wall.

If that doesn't wokr you may have hardware incompatabilites, like with your memory or graphics card.
