I have the weirdest problem. If I bump the computer case my computer will restart. I opened it up and made sure all my connections were tight and they are. I noticed that if I tap the back of the motherboard tray it is even more susceptible to a reestart. Does this sound like a problem anyone has ever encountered before and if so what should I do?

Sounds like you have something loose in the power supply.

Check all connections from the power supply to the motherboard and hard drives/cd drives.

If there is still a problem it may be a fualty power source.

If you've checked all the connections on the motherboard and the components then the only other place left is the power supply.

EDIT: By the way, check all the connections, from the wall outlet to the power button.

Please do not double post. USe the edit button instead. Thanks. ~g

1. :thumbsup: :flowers: :trumpet: :inlove: :cool: :woot: sorry i just had to get that out of the way.

2. i agree with everyone, check all the power connections. then if that doesnt resolve it try the power supply in another computer (if possible). if you have the same results then you have a faulty power supply, and you need to replace it.

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
