Sometimes my pc starts humming noticeably and then will restart, but the illegal shutdown page does not show up, it just restarts normally. Does anyone know what the issue may be?

I would check the power supply or the CPU fan. Take the side off so you can see what's happening. Look to see if the fan for either one is turning, especially when the noise starts.

Also if your motherboard is not insulated properly from your case , it might cause the same problem. Its normally mounted on brass studs ,with an insulation material in between .Ideally you could try dismounting and mounting it again.Not really that difficult, but don't do it if you are not really sure what goes where . :thumbsup:
