My PC Restart automatically

May 13, 2011 at 06:27:45
Specs: Windows XP
My computer restarts automatically after about 3 minutes of starting. If i faced my home fan toward the CPU it works ok, but it restart if i moved the fan away. sometimes just stop working with whit or green screen

the processor is not over heated, about 37 C. and the fan works good
I've changed the memory card to check
I've changed the power supply to check
I've installed a new different XP windows but still restarting before even install any programs
I've disabled the automatic reboot option
I've installed registry Booster to check the registry
I've scanned the PC using Kasper and Avast but no harm found.

i have Itel processor 2.7GHz Dual Core, 2GB RAM, Gigabyte Board 41

make sure that the processor heat sink in attach correctly it may show at 37 C but when i boots the temp will sky rocket and force a restart i did this once a few yers back. Check to see what the condition of the thermal paste is on the CPU if need to apply more(Very Small Amount). Graphics card might be over heating clean fans if covered in dust. could be a transistor getting hot and causing a short out. many reasons for this really.

Where are you getting this temp reading from? If you're using some sort of software program rather than getting the reading from the BIOS, you may simply be using a crappy monitoring program.

"Itel processor 2.7GHz Dual Core, 2GB RAM, Gigabyte Board 41"

Not very helpful. Which "Itel" dual core? Pentium D, Pentium, Core 2 Duo? What type & speed of RAM? "Board 41"? What's that? If you want help, you need to be specific & you need to list your specs correctly.

Now tell us about this new power supply - make/model, wattage & amperage specs. Check the label.

I'm getting this temp from BIOS reading, also used some programs tell the same temp.
Processor: Intel Pentium Dual-Core E5400 2.7 GHz
RAM : Kingston 2GB
MotherBoard: Gigabyte G41M-ES2L

I've just changed the RAM and the power supply to make sure they r ok, but still the same problem.

when in bios your temp will still be low if heat sink is not attached properly only when you load windows the heat really pics up.

Yes Daniel but i already used some programs to measure the heat after loading windows, it gives me 39C.

right so another component is overheating...
how old is the PC?
Graphics card Heat?
check the motherboard transistors : http://www.seb.me.uk/static/dell-tr...

make sure they don't have black tops or are not damaged. if they have over heated it will look like a leaked battery
