The title explains itself, I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but here goes.

My computer will randomly reboot itself, i'll be playinga game orchecking e-mail, all the sudden *click* my PC just reboots. sometimes it will cycle rebotts 2-3 times. Yes, i can boot in safe mode. But i cant do anything (that I know of) in safe mode. I've alsotried running scnas for viruses but everytime it's almost done lol, reboot :flowers: . I've even called Microsoft tech, nothin. I've also trieda clean boot(where you turn off all services on startup with the msconfig feature) I' freakin stcuk. any help is appreciated thanks.
:trumpet: :inlove: :cool: :thumbsup:

Need more info to make an informed guess. It could be the power supply, it could be overheating. Have you had the cover off and made sure the fans are spinning and the fan/heatsinks are not packed with lint and dust?
that would be the first thing. Also, look in the event viewer and see if there are any errors

Start / Run / type in: eventvwr.msc
Click OK.

Click on System, then Applications, and look for any yellow triangles containing exclamation marks (Warnings), or red circles containing white X's (Errors).
To view the problem, right-click it, and select Properties.

Cut and paste and post them here. Sometimes it's important to see the entire error

Ok, this is the list (filtered for warnings and errors) this isnt even the whole list, i also dont know what any of it means :thumbsup: :flowers:


Error 4/12/2007 7:21:06 PM Service Control Manager None 7026 N/A HOME-EYCFM3DEOF

Error 4/12/2007 7:24:28 PM DCOM None 10005 Administrator HOME-EYCFM3DEOF

Warning 4/12/2007 4:29:38 PM Tcpip None 4226 N/A HOME-EYCFM3DEOF

Error 4/12/2007 9:15:49 PM Dhcp None 1002 N/A

No these arent all of them, if i put the whole list it would be a literal walla of text, but these are the different errors and warnings on the list. Any other info you'll need? Or do you have a diagnosis?

Yes i use a router. and thanks for the links :thumbsup:

However, i called up microsoft tech after doing some reading, and we THOUGHT we solved the problem , after we hung up and he declared cas closed of course =P. so i'm still getting random reboots. after getting a little frustrated i too a look in the event log, and im seeing this error recurring during the time of the random reboot. and advice on this?


Event Type: Error

Im hoping that this is the actual culprit and would appreciate in finding a solution

Go to Control Panel>System>click on the Hardware tab then open Device Manager. Look in your USB devices and see if there are any problems. Do you leave your camera plugged in all the time? Try uninstalling the software for it , then reinstall it

I'll try that but the thing is, I got rid of that camera and the software, or so I thought, so no I don't leave it plugged in.

P.S. could this even be the problem?
