Random restarts

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, need a little help.

My computer keeps restarting without warning. No errors even. It happens occasionally on BFBC2 and it just did it on GTA4. CPU max temperatures hit around 50 degrees celsius while the 8800GTX gets to about 83-85 celsius.

I have my E6600 overclocked to 3.09ghz atm. Could it be unstable? Also, I have the 8800GTX overclocked as well sometimes, but it wasn't when it just restarted.

Thoughts?

it could be unstable.... but ensure you have the latest drivers for your card and run some stress tests. OCCT is a good one with error testing enabled

Just tried it out. Did the CPU as well as GPU tests for 10 minutes. Temperatures got hot, but not close to what I get during a game. Should I try it longer?

I've had similar problems and almost always it's the ram.

I would say PSU, if your OC is stable

Drop everything to stock speed and see if things correct themselves. If not, i would look at the psu or ram.

I was just playing L4D2 when it hung up and did like the stuttering of sound and it restarted.

Now, I cannot get into the BIOS. Haven't been able to for a few days now for no reason at all. The keyboard seems to not actually start working until after the boot menu. I did try another keyboard as well but the same thing occurred.

Any ideas?

On top of that, my temperatures are now way higher before I did the stress tests. My GPU topped 99 degrees celsius today, when it never was higher than 87-90. My CPU went to 64, when it never use to be higher than 55-58. Did the tests mess up my stuff?

Not getting in to bios is pretty odd. I know you can disable PnP options in bios which stop USB devices from working. Were both keyboards USB? If so, do you have a really old one with other (can't remember the name) connection?
