PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: Windows XP PRO
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model: Whole Tower
Error Messages: Reboots



Ok so I have an AMD 3200+ on an MSI K7N2-Delta L with 1gig of PC3200 with 1 WD 160gig HD and 1 Seagate 160gig HD. I have a SB 7.1, 52x Burner and a DVD-Rom and an MSI FX5900XT 128m Video Card all running on a 550watt PS. My original set up was all the above except I had an AMD 2600+, PC2700 and a G4 Ti4800SE on a 450watt PS. It started rebooting one day just randomly. I went through and checked everything I could think of. My PS, Video, Ram were first. I tested them and they all seemed to test good. I then looked my case over to see if the board was grounding somewhere. I couldn't find anything. At that point to play it safe I went ahead and replaced the above components with the ones on the first list just to be sure that I had covered my bases Including my motherboard. I did a full and complete format and reinstall of windows. All seemed well at first......well for about 2 or 3 hours. Then BAM, all over again. There are still a few components I haven't changed like my burner, dvd and actually replacing my HD's. I can't think of anything else to do. I could really use some help. I have been building computers for a long time, about 15 years now and have never had this problem occur.
If anyone can think of something I've missed I would really appreciate the input. I own a new web design company and have lots of work to do but I can't do it because I can't use my computer. I am using my wifes to post this but hers won't run some of the programs I use for the sites. I need help fast.....please.

Hi lkeme2002

There are many reasons why a computer may just reboot on its own.

1.A noisy power supply, loose screw under the motherboard, bad CPU fan, and memory, expansion boards, socketed chips, and cables that are not fully seated are among the common causes.  The motherboard could be cracked

Thank you for the info. I started looking around and found that my primary HD had taken a S**T on me. I replaced it and now it works. Thanx again for that site info.
