Random restarts/freezes

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok my wifes using my old computer P4 3.06Ghz HT, 2gb pc5300 ddr2, Abit AL8 mobo ATI Radeon x1300 Pro, and when she plays WoW, very randomly (average once every 2-3 hours) the game will either freeze the entire computer and force a reboot, or the entire computer will restart on it's own, it wont freeze or anything, it will just BEEP restart... I've checked the temps, and they stat at around 28-29 idle, and load temps are extremely under control and not the cause of the reboots, I have all currect GPU drivers and windows updates, and mobo/bios drivers are updated.

So any please take a shot at this problem, my only theories are the WoW install, or possibly a problem with the memory?

How tight/loose is your ram and at what MHz?

Have you thought of a faulty power supply?? If it is shorting out it can cause a system reboot.
