Preferred Solution: Computer Lags And Restarts At Random

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hello mickeymontes and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I do not see any signs of viruses or malware in the log.There are a couple of housekeeping entries that we can remove that do not have any files associated with them so let's do that while you are here.Start HijackThis and click the Scan button to perform a scan. Look for the following items and click in the checkbox in front of each item to select it:O2 - BHO: (no name) - {7E853D72-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23E045} - (no file)O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {F5881F8D-DD85-4663-B157-9A008A0AA045} - (no file)Now close ALL open windows except HijackThis and click the Fix Checked button to finish the repair.For non-malware related performance issues I suggest posting a question in the XP forum here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/56/windows-xp-home-and-professional/ . They can help analyze the system to determine what, if anything, might be causing poor performance. Let them know that you have been to this forum and that no malware was found.Cheers.OT

The only other symptom is a screwed up mouse cursor which sometimes has a rainbow hue and looks like a vertical line with two arrows pointing up and down on each end respectively, I forget the name of the cursor icon (the same one to change the size of program windows when you hover of the edge/corner) Games take forever to load but will run smoothly once they are opened. Sometimes it happens minutes after a complete shutdown and restart sometimes it takes a few days to reappear and may go away without any intervention at all. I ran memtest86 overnight (because of the slow loading of games) and I removed all my Nvidia drivers and ran DriverSweeper then reinstalled just the graphics driver (reason being the only significant change I made to my PC that I am aware of was I installed "The Ge-force experience" program from the Nvidia website. I have had problems with Maleware before which were solved and this new problem didn't appear until months after.

So for the last month my computer has been acting strange, randomly restarting and nothing can be pinned to the taskbar or start menu.

the restarts mainly happen when im playing games, BF4 or world of warcraft mainly. they are at random times between 30 secs and 30 mins roughly.

Things ive checked.
Temperatures, nothing is exceeding anything strange.
Ram, i have 4x4gb, so i used 1 by one, but its restarted no matter which stick i had in.

i made sure there was no loose connetions anywhere, on/off button, Gpu, Cpu etc.

im leaning towards the power supply, its about 2 years old. its a Corsair TX650M

Hey, my computer has been randomly restarting. i believe its not a heating problem because it the sensors say its in a good range around 37. doesn't matter what im doing at the time it restarts. I could be typing up a paper due tommorrow, reading things online, chatting, playing a game, and it would just restart.

i have changed the original ram that was in there, because i read it could be bad ram but it didn't change a thing. the stats of the computer are:

Gigabyte K8nf-9 mobo
Amd athlon 3000+ socket 939
Corsair 1 gb pc3200 dual channel
seagate 60 gig sata hdd
ati radeon x300 pci-E
windows xp pro
1 cooling fan - front
1 cooling fan - rear
1 cooling fan - side
1 pci cooling ran - rear
1 foxconn heatsink and fan
420 watt psu raid max
ultra uv side panel case

note; the northbridge chipset gets really hot. there's no fan on it. but gigabyte isn't stupid to put passive cooling on it if it would get hot enough to damage it. i did a reinstall of xp and it still restarts randomly, as far as i can see all drivers are installed correctly.

right now im thinking the power supply is unstable. i can't think of anything else.

but if anyone can help me out. it would be great

Just out of curiosity, do you have automatic updates turned on?

I have been having this problem for a very long time. My computer likes to randomly restart on me. I started with Windows XP Professional and the set-up you will see below. Once the problems began, a computer technician told me it was my motherboard so I replaced my Abit kD7-Raid with an Asus A7V333 w/ Raid. I am now running Windows 2000 Pro as well. Basically, the problem oocurs when I am using my TDK Velo drive. For instance, tonight, I tried installing Adobe Photoshop from CD and 10% into the install, my computer just rebooted. Sometimes, I won't be doing anything and it just reboots. What the hell could be wrong here?

A:Random Computer Restarts

My grandmother was recently having a problem with her computer,
It is about a 5-year old IBM NetVista with a 1ghz Celeron

She wanted a reinstall of Windows, which i did, but now i cannot install any updates such as SP2 because computer just resets unexpectedly every few minutes.

Later I reformatted, and tried to see if Windows 2000 would work. Unfortunately during installation, the same thing happens. The computer resets while win2000 is installing network components.

Can anyone give me any ideas of what to look at?

Brand new computer no more that 2 months old. Custom built. I bought a barebone kit from tiger direct and I didn't add anything new... Computer worked good for a month and then after that it started to turn off or restart. It doesn not display any errors or bsod's. It doesn't give an error when the computer starts.

Troubleshooting so far:
Replaced the motherboard with identical model number... Same issue
Replaced the processor and heatsink... Same issue..
Replaced power supply.. Same issue
Reset cmos battery and the little short circuit that has two pins (I forgot what that is called)
Replaced memory with lower frequenzy (1333 DDR3)

I know that I pretty much replaced everything. I am planning on building a computer without using the hard drive of this system as everything else works... Oh and the front panel is connected properly so I know there are no mistakes there. Thanks in advanced for any advice!!

I have been having this problem for a very long time. My computer likes to randomly restart on me. I started with Windows XP Professional and the set-up you will see below. Once the problems began, a computer technician told me it was my motherboard so I replaced my Abit kD7-Raid with an Asus A7V333 w/ Raid. I am now running Windows 2000 Pro as well. Basically, the problem oocurs when I am using my TDK Velo drive. For instance, tonight, I tried installing Adobe Photoshop from CD and 10% into the install, my computer just rebooted. Sometimes, I won't be doing anything and it just reboots. What the hell could be wrong here?

I've been having problems with my computer. It keeps restarting itself randomly. At first I thought it was a ram problem. So I went ahead and tested all three rams and two failed. I thought that was weird so i retested those two rams in another computer and it pasted! Now I knew it was a motherboard problem. So I figured I would try to reset the cmos battery since thats the only thing I can do. Once it reset I retested the Ram and all three rams passed. I thought I fixed the problem but again it restarted when I was playing Starcraft. Now I was truely stumped. So I decided to deassemble the computer and dust all the components. I've moved the hard drive to a cooler location and reapplied thermal paste to my cpu. Again it didn't help! I've also tried to update bios, checked for virus, ran spybot and ad-aware with no luck! I've put alot of stress on my cpu with prime95 with no restarts. Its totally random! Please any advise would help. Please note that I've unchecked automatic restart under system and recovery.

A:Computer Random Restarts why?

Read other 16 answers

Hey guys, hope you can help me.
So, it's been almost 3 weeks since my laptop started restarting itself randomly, no errors were shown, it just crashed, shut down and immediately start again.
After the first restart I couldn't connect to a WiFi network anymore, i noticed my WiFi driver was gone, but after restarting the device a few times the driver was back and i could connect again.
However, the restarts continued, it happens more often when I move the laptop but it restarts even when it is just still in a table or a desk, it takes a little longer for it to restart but at the end it happens.
After some time I got a blue screen, which showed an ACPI_BIOS_ERROR. I restarted again and everything worked properly, but the random restarts were still there. This blue screen appeared at least 3 times again.
I updated the BIOS and that blue screen hasn't appeared again since then, but the restarts are still happening and the WiFi problem too.
I was told to do a system recovery to factory settings, so I did it, but it didn't work either.
I don't know what else to do at this point so any help you guys can give is appreciated. Sorry if I said something wrong, english isn't my main language .

I would run a Memtest on the Ram to begin with, to rule that out, test one stick of Ram at a time, at least 6 runs.

I've looked over everything that I can think of yet this keeps on happening...

I will randomly get a blue screen of death for about 1-2 sec. (I can only read that there is something wrong with my ntfs.sys file) and then the computer will restart. I have run checkdisk and found my HD error free, and also updated windows XP as much as possible. I also virus scanned...still nothing. This is the 2nd HD that I have used...both of them new. The first one I RMA'ed because I thought the fault was with it. Now I am not so sure...I recently checked the system error logs...and I believe that the problem(?) is one of these two errors?

a Save Dump - event 1001 - it says the following:

"The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x10000050 (0xa2e90cc8, 0x00000000, 0xf76e4720, 0x00000000)"

or from this one...a system error log - event 1003 category 102 - it says:

"Error code 10000050, parameter1 a2e90cc8, parameter2 00000000, parameter3 f76e4720, parameter4 00000000."

The specs of my system are as follows:

Athlon 64 3200+
Hightech Radeon 9800 Pro
Corsair 1 gig PC3200
Thermaltake 480W Butterfly PSU

I've been trying to get this fixed for a long time...has anyone else had a similar problem to this? I'm beginning to think it's either something wrong with my mobo, or ram? Please help me someone. Anything is much appreciated.

A:Random Computer Restarts

Hi meistershutze.
I think that your problem might be your memory, Remove one (unless it is a 1gig stick) and try, then switch with the other and try. Always remember to unplug the power supply prior to installing or removing memory sticks..
Or you can try MEMTEST 86
Good luck and keep us informed.

i have a problem with my computer making random restarts...it happens mostly when i play games (first happened after i installed World Of Warcraft) and its been going on ever since.
i thought it was a hardware issue so i sent it to the lab, when they told me that my fan was messed up so they replaced it. but it seems as though that was not the problem because it keeps restarting even after i got it back from the lab.
could it be a virus or an infection? i dont think its dust or cooling issues because the lab cleaned the dust off.

Intel Pentium 4 3.40 Ghz
Windows XP professional (english)
NVidia GeForce 6600

I started getting messages saying that my computer will restart in 1 minute, etc...
it sais that this was triggered by Remote Procedure Call terminating unexpectantly. This began occuring frequently (such as within 30 minutes of restarting). After trying a few simple things in vain I just reformatted my Hard Drive and reinstalled windows. I figured this would be a sure fire way of squashing this bug. Yet, it did it again! My geuss is that it would be a driver or some software I had installed.

At the time that it happened I had Installed the following:
Detonator 44.03 Drivers
Soundblaster Extigy Drivers
Soundblaster Extigy firmware and software patch
Windows Media Player 9

My friend just built his computer a few weeks ago, had no problems for the first week and a half, but now for some reason his computer will restart w/o warning while he's playing any game. It doesn't happen while streaming videos, or doing any other task. He has already checked his BIOS to make sure his computer doesn't shutdown on blue screens, and he monitored his temperatures while he's in game and they all are normal. None of his stuff is over clocked either.

What's the brand on the power supply?

Run memtest for at least 7 passes to stress-test the RAM (even though Corsair is usually problem-free).

Make sure all drivers are updated. Especially the video driver (since it crashes in-game). The latest Forceware driver is 169.21

Right-click My Computer and select Properties. Go to the "Advanced" tab and click "Settings" under "Startup and Recovery". Make sure "Automatically Restart" is NOT checked.

Good luck.

Ever since I let it update on shutdown, the computer's been running really slowly. It takes a long time to open the start menu after clicking on it, and even opening folders or programs. I tried scanning with Avg antivirus and the computer shuts down and restarts in the middle of it. So I scanned in safe mode and was able to do that. But it didn't help. So I tried disk cleanup, disk defragment, sfc /scan and disk repair but its still running very slow. I haven't downloaded anything except changing the windows theme but I don't know if thats the issue since there wasn't any problem until after windows update.

Hello, my name is Jonny and I'm here to find out why my computer randomly restarts (I believe its because it overheats but don't know what) and when it turns back on all I hear is all the fans in my computer blowing but my monitor is pitch black and the light is blinking as if its not even on. I turn it off, then I leave it for 2 or 3 minutes and turn it back on and it works normally again I hear everything booting but I also have to leave my fan blowing into the case or else it would turn off again. I want to know what is overheating and if there are any sorts of hardware problems as I've read in some of the other forums. This has been going on for about 6 months and since school has been starting i do not want this to happen while i am in the middle of my schoolwork.

My video card is a Ge-Force 7900 GS, I have SP2 of windows XP, Core 2 Duo processor, Seagate 320 GB harddrive, 1 gig of DDR2 corsair memory and 2 gigs of Ballistix memory.

thank you

A:Random computer restarts and no displays afterwards

Does your GeForce video card have a fan on it? Does the fan spin? Pull the CPU heatsink off, clean off the old thermal compound using alcohol, and apply a small amount of arctic cooler freezer pro 7 once more. Also, check the thermal shut off settings for the CPU in the bios. You might want to reset the CMOS settings

I tried doing a harddisk error read through windows, but it froze 40% through the scan of the free space (part 5 of 5).

I've had this computer for almost a year and had been working fine. All of a sudden it started restarting on its own. The first few times I thought I had pulled the power cable, or touched some button. I formatted the hard drive and made a clean install, but the crashes continue. They come randomly, and since my clean install the crashes have occurred on: Sept 11(3 times), Sept 17(once), Sept 21(twice), Sept 24(once), Sept 27(once), Sept 28(once).

The CPU temperature at the crash is always around 60 degrees, the GPU temp at the crash has been between 40 degrees and 80 degrees(it crashed while gaming). I have run memtest86 for a few hours with all the sticks, and then alternating sticks, and then alternating slots. No error has occurred. My GPU has worked fine with another system.

Tried to make the computer post a BSOD on crash, but it just restarts, as if someone had unplugged it, and plugged it back again. There is also no dump file created. I have only the keyboard, and mouse connected to usb ports. I think this may be a MOBO or PSU problem but am not really sure. If anyone has any help they can give it would be greatly appreciated.

My specs are:
MOBO: ASUS P6x58d-e
GPU: Nvidia GTX 470
CPU: Core i7 950
Hard drive: WD Caviar Black 1TB
RAM: GSkill F3-12800CL9-6GBNQ

Over the past few days, my desktop computer has restarted twice randomly. Both times have been during times of low demand on the computer. The first time on 7/20/12 I was browsing the internet. The second was on 7/21/12 during a time when I left the computer idle on a browser for a phone call and came back to find my computer restarted with no information about windows updates or anything that I would expect to cause an automatic restart.

I have not run into this problem before so I checked a few things which I thought may be a problem. First I did a virus scan because I have had a few problems with infections in the past. I ran several virus programs including malwarebytes, hitmanpro 3.6.0 (trial), microsoft security essentials, and spybot. After the first restart, I found a bootkit with hitman pro (Master Boot Record (Sector 0) in C:$MBR) which was deleted successfully according to the program. I thought this was the cause of the issue.

To be safe, I restarted and reran all the virus scans and found no further infection. I restarted another time in safe mode and ran them again and still found nothing else. However, the computer restarted today for a second time despite this infection being cleared. I reran the virus scans and found nothing again.

Additionally, I loaded a hardware monitor program to check my computer temperatures and found them to be quite comfortable. My video card idle is running at 45C and my processor is running at 28C. I am ru... Read more

Ok, so i'll start the machine up (stupid phillips freeline, 3ghz with 1 gig ram and 128mg graphics) it's works fine, it's happy, let it be for a while and it loves you, start doing things, it's ok still a bit of whirring. Just when you think it's all safe...BAM!!!...*pstow* (monitor off machine has just restarted. ?! this happens roughly every 4 hours, bvut it sometimes can be a few days or minutes. I've been through almost everything i could think of, tried reinstalling the whole damn lot, didn't work, tried new ram as that can cause problems, still didn't work. stopped it restarting, came up with blue screen of death with some error which when i looked up made no sense and told me to buy a new pc!. tried upgrading the drivers, seing if the don't work well, when i get to the sound driver, i update it and it stops bloody working. this is the only thing i can think of. heat doesn't seem to be a problem, i have heat checking software which monitors it, same with power consumption and such forth. can't be a virus as i use mcaffee, with all the trimmings, ad aware, spybot and such forth. kills all on sight, but it even shuts down when searching sometimes mad: grrr!!!). has anyone got any ideas? other than buy a new motherboard or pc? this is driving me nuts

A:Computer restarts at random intervals?!

Good Morning Bigdaveshea, with machines like this with a history as you mention it can be extremely difficult to pin down the cause.
Rather than get into trying to analyse what may have happened I would suggest you try running a Linux Live CD (Puppy Linux) and observe if any problem is present in it.
This will immediately determine if it is a software or hardware issue.
It is possible that there is other hidden damage in your M/B.

Others will have different ideas.

Cheers, qldit.

Well I had trouble finding anyone else with this exact problem. I'll try explaining this the best I can.

Well when I start my computer, it sometimes goes to the last known configuration page. The one that looks like this:

No matter which option I choose, when it gets to the Windows XP loading screen, it lags when the windows xp logo fades in, and then the computer restarts.
I did find a temporary way around this. When the computer starts up I hit F8 and i'm shown this screen:

Then, if I choose my hard drive, the loading screen comes up, and everything works fine. I figured this may be a hard drive issue, so I ordered a new hard drive. (I needed one anyway)

My original HDD is a Western Digital 75GB Raptor, the new one i bought is a Western Digital 640GB, both SATA. I tried setting them both up on my computer so I could transfer over some important files, but when I booted the computer with both of them installed, the computer would lag on the windows xp loading screen no matter what I did.

So I took that out and now i'm in the same position I was before. Anyone have any advice?

A:Windows XP Lags on Loading Screen... Restarts

Install your new drive and set the jumpers as master. Set the old drive as slave and Make sure it is disconnected. I assume you have your XP install CD? Make sure the CD/ROM Is set for first boot in the bios and install XP anew in the new drive. After the install shutdown the computer and connect the old drive and boot up the computer. Now you should be able to access the old drive and transfer your data to the new drive. Once done and confirmed that the data is transferred, you can delete, or format the old drive.

I have 3 problems. I am wondering if they are all related.

1. When I click start>shut down, computer hangs up for about 5 minutes before the box, shut down, restart, etc. shows up-computer then shuts down normally.
2. When I print documents, the first will print, then it takes a long time before another will print. The printer is new and works fine. It is connected to this computer, but shared over a home network. Does the same with the other computers in the network.
3. The computer screen will occasionally go dark and just reboot.

I used this forum a few years ago for another problem an the guy that helped me was amazingly helpful.

My computer is relatively new. It's a little over a year old Dell Vostro with Windows 7. Lately it's gotten extremely slow, restarts randomly and basically doesn't act the way it should. I've done the virus scan (I have Trend Micro). Everything looks alright but the computer is still a bit of a mess. Any advice/ideas?

Thank you so much for your help. Your time and efforts are greatly appreciated.

Hi charles ruff..

I have this problem for some months, that i get random BSODs/computer restarts
First of all, a problem i have for some months: When i use mozila firefox browser, the computer crashes after a few minutes
And when i start BFBC2, it instantly reboots

But lately, it is happening more often, the computer restarts randomly when browsing in chrome, or playing in games (such as garrysmod and fallout new vegas)

And i'm not sure that it is a BSOD, because i only have two minidumps that are pretty old

I don't know if this is a software or hardware problem, because i tried installing drivers and it didn't help, and some months ago i reformatted windows and it didn't help either

The GPU Temperature is about 60*C after the computer restarts which is normal
And the CPU Temperature is about 59*C too

I'm planning on upgrading the hardware, probably the GPU
but i don't know if it is the problem, or is it the processor/psu/ram/motherboard/etc..

Included perfmon and bsod dump/system report file, but i'm not sure if the problems i have are BSODs since i don't get the actual blue screen and i only have two old minidumps
The computer just randomly restarts

You also have some problems with Windows Update

Please go to your Maintenance Center and check the Windows Update status. Make sure you are up to date, do them one by one manually if needed.
For help or reset see: Windows Update - Reset

Furthermore... you might want to free some space on D:

Dumps are old...but the Aug 3rd one points to problems with your graphics drivers.
Please renew: ati driver

Make SURE you delete old first.
When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Driver Sweeper

Driver Sweeper is a fast tool to remove driver leftovers from your system. It's very important to remove your drivers on a proper way, because driver leftovers can cause problems like stability and startup problems. You can use it if you want to update/remove drivers from your system.

How to use ?

There are two methods to use Driver Sweeper.
Both methods achieve the same results. This method is always able to clean all files.

This method will delete remaining files upon reboot (if deleting failed). You can clean your drivers this way:

- Use the official uninstaller(s) of the driver(s) you want to uninstall.
- Reboot your PC in Safe Mode.
- Run Driver Sweeper and select what to clean.
- Analyse lists all the entries possible to remove, cleaning removes the entries selected.
- More drivers can be selected for the same cleaning process.

Hi all,

Any help you can offer me on this would be greatly appreciated.

I'm using WindowsXP Home Ed, SP2. Once into Windows and doing my own thing, the computer will reset itself seemingly at random. Never after the same amount of time, just randomly. Initially it would restart, before I shut option off. Now I get the BSOD with:



0x0000000A (0xF7DFF050, 0x000000FF, 0x00000000, 0x8053E5E5)

Does anybody have any ideas? It just keeps happening. I'm surprised I got to type this much already without it happening again! Run memtest86+ with no issues, no spyware or viruses either. BIOS is up to date...

AMD Athlon 64 Processor
GIGABYTE motherboard: K8 Triton Series - GA-K8NMF-9

thanks in advance for any advice!!

EDIT: in addition, if it does not reset in this manner, XP will occasionally hang and leave me unable to do anything, even ctrl+alt+delete

A:Computer random restarts (optional BSOD)

generally attributed to bad or failing ram. run memtest 86+ booted from a CD or a floppy for at least 7 passes. Any errors are bad and require ram replacement. pay attention to the error block #s, they will tell you which stick(s) have failed.

Some of the important background for this post is in Computer gets power, shuts off, gets power, repeats, never boots from late 2011.

But in quick form, I have a decent home-built computer that last year had the Gigabyte motherboard go bad, take the processor with it, and a new Gigabyte MB and Intel I3 processor were put in after a lot of trial and error, and I was back in business.

For 12 months anyway.

Last week, I turned the computer on and the lights and fan came on for a couple seconds, then it turned off. Turned it on again, and the lights and fan came on and stayed on, but no POST, no boot, nothing.

Took it to a really great repair shop who fixed me up last year and in an hour they'd called me to say it just needed a new power supply. "We've got you running, and you're all set."

My old PSU had been a 400 watt Corsair. This one was a 350 watt, not sure of the brand, but this repair shop doesn't deal in junk, so I assume it was a decent brand. They said that I could keep the 350 watt one, which was $25, or they had 500 watt ones that would cost quite a bit more, but that 350 should be fine.

Got the computer home, connected it, powered up, all good - and then after about 2 1/2 hours, boom, screen went black, and it went through a restart cycle. Ten minutes later, same thing.

A check of the event viewer showed that there had been no errors or critical events until yesterday morning at the repair place, when presumably they powered it up with all the p... Read more

A:Computer does random restarts after putting in a 350 watt PSU

With power supplies, you want a bit of headroom, so you aren't running the PSU at 100% full time. if the calculator said 299-325 then I would stick with 400-450. Power supplies degrade over time and lose about 10% of their capacity.

Even just running for a few hours, will not stress a computer, you need to actually use it as you would in normal conditions. or run a stress testing program so it is at full load.

The cord could be the culprit, or the power strip itself. One reason for going with a more expensive power supply is that they have overvolt and undervolt protection features. these keep spikes and lags in current from damaging your other components.

I would not go with a $25 power supply at any capacity. Get a good power supply that is reliable.

This is a good article on the PSU basics. read the part about PFC (cause that's pretty geeky) and overvolt protection.
Newegg.com - Learning Center,Power Supplies

also, having too much is not a problem, if the computer draws ~325, a 400W and 500W will still only draw that much, its just that they won't be running at 100% or 90% capacity thus less wear on the PSU.

Hi, first of all thanks for the help, and I attached a full Everest report for my system. (tell me if you need a different report...)

Here is the situation:

I have this computer for +/- 3 years and this problem occured about 6 months ago. I first noticed it when I left my computer running and when I came back (1-2 hours later), it was restarting by itself. It just lets the screen open and then restarts over and over again. Sometimes it's gonna keep looping, or other times (when I shutdown and restart it myself) it's gonna loop 4-5 times and then give me the "Overclocking Failed! Please enter Setup to re-configure your system.
Press F1 to Run SETUP
Press F2 to load default values and continue"

So I press F2, then I can use the computer, but it can then randomly shutdown and redo the auto restart again. I'm not doing anything specific when it shutdowns, sometimes it can take 15 min or 3 hours before it shutsdown.

Things I tried:
-Reformat: I keep having the same problem;
-Memtest: No errors;
-I ran Avast, spybot, etc.: No virus or spyware, etc.;

- I replaced the Cmos Battery and a strange thing happened when doing so: After changing the battery and resetting date&time, The computer worked great, I could manually restart my cpu without having the error msg or loop problem, I tested it all night and it never gave me any problem. But the next moring I tried again and it gave me the same error message...and now I have the same problem (so I'm... Read more
