Random restarts

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
A while back I reinstalled a fresh copy of Windows 7 x64, after that my pc would randomly restart and quite frequently. At that time I still had a cheap 550w psu and thought it might have been my gpu thats pulling to much power. I then got a Mukii Asroc 750w Psu but it did the same thing,It gradually became less frequent but decided to reinstall Windows again. The same issue occured and gradually because less frequent. A few days ago my pc hardly randomly restarted untill I took the thing appart for a cleaning, after a assembled it again the same restarting issue started again. I've tried reinstalling the latest drivers and checked if any of the drivers had corrupted but all seems fine. Any one have an idea as to why it keeps restarting?

Specs:
AMD Phenom II 965 x4 3.6oc
Corsair Dominator 4gb 1333
Asus HD6870 1gb gpu
Mukii Asroc 750w psu
Antec Kuhler 620 cooler
2x500gb 5200rpm Samsung hard drives
250gb 7200rpm Samsung hard drive (primary)
LG lightscribe dvd writer
I have about 7 fans in my case

Please set your system back to Default settings in the bios then reattemp boot if it fails again i would check memory,HDD and maybe even your power supply i had a issue with my 12v on a power supply that would cause random reboots/BSOD hope this helps

Well the ram is about 3months old, the thing that gets me is that it started off restarting every few minutes to about once a day now it hardly restarts but every now and then it will still annoy me...

Is the memory set to the correct timings/speeds/voltages?
