Keeps restarting !

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello I have a problem I hope you guys (and Gals) can help me with. I have an MSI 870-G45 mb with an AMD 1075T X6 processor. Every so often it restarts on it's own. I've noticed when it does this I lose the last 3 blue leds on the mb. The first one stays lit. I then hear the harddrive spool up, then the last three re-light. Does this point to any particular problem ? I downloaded the manual for the mb but it doesn't go into any real detail as to the function of the leds. Any help greatly appreciated. I have a fair understanding of computers but am not a whiz by any stretch of the imagination ! Thanks in advance. Fred

How random are the restarts? Does it do it at idle, under full load? Any particular application open when it seems to do it more often than not?

Have you ran Memtest 86+ or any other stress testing program to see if you can reproduce the errors. Are there any correlating events showing up in the Windows Event Viewer Log that might help point you in the right direction?

How old is the power supply?

Have you used any cpu temperature monitoring software to log your cpu temps during use?

Have you added any new hardware lately, or updated hardware drivers recently?

If you are running Windows, one thing you want to do is disable the option to Automatically restart the system in the event of a System failure.

To do this;

1. Right click on "My Computer"

2. Select "Properties"

3. Select "Advanced"

4. In the System Properties GUI box look down and locate "Startup and Recovery" and select "Settings"

5. Under System failure uncheck "Automatically restart"

The intent of doing this is to prevent Windows from automatically restarting if you have a hardware problem or BSOD. This might help us narrow down the potential causes.
