Question about Intel D102GGC2 Motherboard

1 Answer

Spontaneous reboot I'm at wit's end; my system is rebooting on its own. When I got this system, it didn't happen, but lately it's happening more and more, and it's happening sooner after powerup. An odd sound accompanies this, from the motherboard somewhere near the memory slots, reminiscent of the sound a steamkettle makes before it whistles. I was concerned it was a problem with my CPU overheating, so I purchased a better heatsink/fan and replaced it, I've added fans to the case, removed two HDs for concern they were heating up the ambient in the case, etc. Then I thought it was the video card overheating, pulled it and ran off the motherboard's video... same thing. Runs for a while... BADOOP, reboot. Current thought it that the northbridge or southbridge is overheating, but I don't get why it would be doing that now. I did remove the heatsink from the northbridge, and take a look... reapplied new paste and reattatched. Currently I'm running with the side off the case, with a fan blowing into the side, but even that doesn't always work... and it sure is loud.

Every time i play games my computer is restart

Have you installed anything new lately into your P.C.? Graphics card , Ram, etc.. does this only happen when starting games?
Perform 'Disk Cleanup' and 'Disk Defragmenter' both found by clicking 'Start button', 'All Programs', Accessories', 'System Tools', then select 'Disk Cleanup' 1st and finish that before selecting ' Disk Defragmenter', When completely finished reboot P.C. and try your games. If it still happens it might be a simple thing like replacing the Power Supply Unit (PSU). The P.C. sounds like it's demanding more power when starting games and the P.C. restarting to protect itself.

XP Keeps Rebooting at Startup

Most likely it is your hard drive. There is a boot sector on the hard drive and when xp starts it looks for that boot sector. If that boot sector is damaged xp can't find it so xp reboots again...and again...and... Try a different hard drive and see what happens.

While driving, shuts off, then "reboots"

The same happened to me. Its a faulty machine, I think. Other things were wrong as well. In the end I bought a Tom Tom 720 and have had no problem since
