View Full Version : Frequent random reboots

01-10-2006, 09:28 PM
Hi guys

I have a system here that is randomly rebooting. I will list specs:
Enermax Noisetaker 485W PSU
2x512mb DDR PC3200
Intel 3.0Ghz Socket 478
Unknown Foxconn Motherboard
PCI IDE/SATA RAID controller
AGP8X GeForce MX440
PCI Gigabit NIC

Bought the PC Early this year, and it had a fresh copy of windows on it. (So I was told) It randomly rebooted sometimes, and I eventually reloaded it. It got worse, but settled down as I used it more. Has not been an issue over the winter.

About midyear the 300w Hyena PSU pooped out so I replaced with the Enermax

A few days ago it has started to reboot up to a dozen times or more a day. I removed the HSF assemble and cleaned the dust, thermal paste etc, and remounted that. CPU temps dropped to 39deg C, but still the reboot issue remains. Does this sound like a mobo problem?

Any help/suggestions/questions are welcome.
