My computer started randomly restarting today while playing Payday 2. I'm not sure what the problem is, but I've ran MiniToolBox and here are the results.


Allahu Akbar

Make sure computer is not overheating, SpeedFan is a program that monitors voltages, fan speeds and temperatures in computers with hardware monitor chips. SpeedFan can even access S.M.A.R.T. info and show hard disk temperatures. Also check system errors and warnings system logs from Event Viewer.

Hi plshelpmypoorpc,


Do you have a laptop or a pc?


If you have a laptop, try to remove the battery and put it back in.


If you have a pc:

What PSU do you have?

What GPU do you have?

Go into the BIOS and let us know what the 3.3v, 5v and 12v values are, the BIOS is the place where you can find these most accurately.

Kind regards,
