Solved PC is rebooting repeatedly

Gigabyte / M61pme-s2p
April 22, 2014 at 13:58:23
Specs: Windows XP, 2.712 GHz / 2047 MB

I do not know how this problem started but my pc reboots after a few mintues repeatedly & then it stops rebooting. The cpu cabinet lights & fans work but nothing is displayed on the monitor, windows does not get displayed.

I am sure this is not a virus issue as I had scanned my pc earlier.

I have also disabled automatic restart but I do not get any eblue screen rror message.

Could anyone let me know what could be the problem.

I finally got the problem resolved. It was the motherboard IC, got it repaired & now the pc is working fine. Hopefully no other problems should arise.

If it is rebooting with a BSOD then it is almost certainly a power supply problem.

A failing component causing the power supply to just itself off.

It is not rebooting with the blue screen. I tested the pc again & it worked properly for about an hour & then it abruptly rebooted. I opened the cpu cabinet to check the internal fans & started the pc & all the fans worked well.
I am not able to understand the problem with my pc.

I would guess it's the power supply failing. Computers need a constant supply of current. All it takes is a small interruption to cause a reboot. Also check your house current. Try plugging the computer into a different socket. Try swapping out your surge protector. You can get a good power supply at Newegg.com for $20 after rebate. It's the Corsair 430 watt with a single 12volt rail. Check it out.

Most likely PSU as already given but did your clean include fans, vents and CPU heat sink?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I have cleaned all the fans & vents but will have to check the heat sink to find out if that is causing the problem. Could it be that the processor is not getting the proper cooling which is required?

Overheating is a "possibility" and there is nothing to lose by cleaning the CPU heatsink (without removing it). To see if overheating is actually the problem you would need to look at temperatures in BIOS or find a free program which does this.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

PC temperatures
Hi Derek,

I cleaned the heat sink without removing it & also the fan. I also downloaded AIDA64 to check for temp. Attached it the screen capture of the pc temp. after running the pc for 1hr approx. Are these temperatures too hot or just ok?

Some are a little "cosy" if the computer was just idling but I can't see anything there which would cause rebooting. Best see what others think too.

Temps OK, I assume that since a few temps are a little high, it was not just idle, but during use. The 12V rail is OK, the 3.3V is OK, but the 5V is more than 10% high and 2.5V (not sure what uses that one or where it originates) is about 20% low. All should be within 5% of their nominal values. These indicate a power supply problem or possibly a motherboard regulator issue. I would try a different power supply and see how that goes next.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
