Restarts when case is knocked???

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
This is weird guys.. I noticed recently that my computer will restart if I bang into the case. I don't mean if I knock the case over or kick it, I have it down beneath my desk and if my foot taps it when I get up, it automatically restarts.

I checked all the plugs on the outside, everything is solid. Any ideas as to what could be the issue?

I used to have a bad power strip my computer was plugged into - if my foot even touched it slightly I restarted.

I had this problem once...what I found was I didn't have my power connections connected all the way. I had a modular PSU and I mis-connected 1 cable...any mini vibration would cause the PC to shut down. I'd check and double check all your connections before looking at any hardware.

I had this problem about 4 days ago. I took everything out of my case including the motherboard, flipped the mobo upside down, and a little metal piece fell out. I dont know what is was, but it fixed the problem so look in your case for any parts that shouldnt be touching.

Gotcha, I was afraid of that.. I really need to get rid of this geminII cooler.. makes accessing the board a real *****.

My power strip should be fine, the xbox is on the same one and no issues with that..

Thanks guys!

And stuffstuff, I don't think the watercooling holes are appropriately sized for that..
