Random reboot on an otherwise stable machine...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So my computer has been stable since around the middle of April (~16 hours of Prime95 with 90% memory utilization), but I just now experienced a random reboot while streaming media to my HTPC; something we frequently do, so I doubt this is the cause. I don't think there was a BSOD, but I wasn't looking at the screen and so I have no idea if there was or not. However, there is no dump file according to a BSOD viewer I have installed (and it is configured to dump). I ran Prime95 for a couple minutes, along with Heaven 3.0, and there was no reboot. Should I cast this off as a fluke?

I am a bit worried. I was under the assumption that this was a stable machine, and the restart caused me to lose some code that I was working on (my own fault for not saving right away, but I also have a UPS that would protect the system in the event of a power outage, so I guess I felt a false sense of security...). I did pull the plug leading to the wall to test the UPS, and the system remained on and functional, so I know that is fine.

Could software alone cause this? Maybe a driver? I hope my power supply is not failing on me, but if it is, it is perfect timing with Black Friday and all.

The specifications belong to my "Beast of the East" rig below. Thanks in advanced for any ideas...

Edit: forgot to mention, event view has only one event; (41) kernal power failure.

Most likely a one off for now.

Thanks. I hope so, but I guess I will just see what happens in the coming days. I don't really want to run another long run of Prime95, but maybe I should...

Nothing recently. A couple weeks back I did set up the crashplan service, which has been running in the background, but I think that is really all that has changed. Oh, and I also installed the NetBeans IDE and the usual Windows updates that come around every so often.

Things I have constantly running:

Logitech Gaming Software (G400 Mouse)
uTorrent
CrashPlan
Steam
Cyberpower Powerpanel
Dropbox
CoreTemp
Kodak Status Monitor
Flicks(Bamboo Tablet Software)
Samsung SSD Magician
Dolby Home Theater
Realtek Audio Manager
IRST

It just happened again, about 8 times in a row, and now it will not successfully boot. I even attempted to get into the BIOS to check the settings, but it restarted itself when I was IN the BIOS itself... I am going to go out and get a new PSU before this one takes anything out with it by attempting to boot the machine again. It's an Antec NTP650... gotta check the warranty.

Bumpy...

Before I go out and buy a new PS, is anyone else sure that rebooting itself in the BIOS would be a sign of a bad power supply? I am going to grab one at Best Buy, that way if it still happens I will just easily return the new power supply. Apparently I have a year left on my warranty for the Antec, so that will be replaced if its bad, but I just want to make sure its not my GPU or motherboard frown.gif.
