  1. It could be anything of your computer’s components. My partner’s computer was thus affected lately. He removed and replaced everything with components that he knew were working on his other computer, from video card to memory and power supply, etc. In the end, he came to the conclusion that it had to be either the motherboard or the processor. We’ll never know though. Since he had no way of checking those two, he purchased a new hybrid motherboard (to be able to use his older components) & a new processor.

    Let’s hope your problem is not that bad. Just so you know that it could be that bad though. Good luck!

  2. if it restarts after a while or it restarts after you open up alot of stuff
    that means its over heating and you need to clean it or check for the processor fan if its working

    but if it just shuts down byitself with no reason at all, it might be the power supply

    but i think its a safe bet to think that its over heating, especially if its old.
    open it up and bring the vaccum and suck all that dust up😀

  3. FurGaia, well im not sure because its all new and most of it built in.. i will check the stuff and let you know😉 thanks

  4. bambam, no, not while i open many applications or processes.
    and it doesnt shut down, it just restarts itself.
    and im not sure about the overheating because the components are new (MB and CPU)

    thank you😀

  5. Dang, that could be any number of things. I have no real idea. Sorry! Try to document what happens next time when it restarts itself. Maybe that’ll give you a clue. That’s how I solved my driver conflicts between my Ethernet port and my wireless card.

  6. try this —-> open start menu , choose run ,write system.ini , it will appear a couple of lines look to the 5th one if there is user.exe=user.exe then your computer is safe no hacker is controlling your computer ,if it u see ******user.exe=user.exe then your system has been invaded by a hacker (b3eed el shar)….i don’t know if its true but thats what i have read in the net lately…. :yes:

  7. This could be due to many different reasons including:

    1. Software problems
    2. Damaged RAM
    3. Damaged cables
    4. Problem with a PCI card
    5. Power Supply issue
    6. Damaged boot files
    7. HDD bad sectors
    8. CPU cooling problem; either thermal paste not placed/ dried off, or heat sink not properly attached.
    9. Bulged motherboard capacitors

    First of all you have to make sure that the restarts are not software triggered, i.e. Windows doesn’t shutdown and then restarts the computer, but instead the computer restarts as if you pressed the restart button.

    If the restarts were software triggered (I don’t think they would be) then it’s a matter of a virus, software mal-configuration or some other kind of software problem that is easy to solve.

    If it is not, then it’s probably one of other problems (hardware related). Given your computer is new, I’d rule out the points 2 to 5.

    If the restarts happen during boot (apparently not?) then it’s a problem with the boot files and can be solved by doing a disk scan.

    If the restarts happen whenever you do something specific (like launching a program, opening a document or else) (bardo sheklo mesh hek?) then you have a file problem and you can get over it doing a disk scan too.

    If not any of the above, make sure your thermal paste is Ok and your heat sink is correctly positioned. I don’t think you’ll have it here because again, your computer is new😀

    The last reason in the list is my best bet: bulged capacitors! Capacitors are electric components that store charge and are used to regulate voltage across many motherboard components. They come in different sizes and shapes. The ones on computer motherboard are relatively big cylinders. Sometimes, due to overheating or power abruptions, these capacitors get damaged. They inflate and cease to regulate voltage across vital motherboard components which in turn trigger certain circuits to restart the computer.

    You need to open your computer case and look for any inflated capacitors. Check this link to know how they look like:

    Let me know what you find.

  8. Matt, hehehe thanks😀

    orangee there isnt any user in the file😀 thanks anyway🙂

    Thanks a lot Anonymous i will check everything🙂 that was great!!!

  9. I’ve the same problem. My computer restarts by itself. But it restarts when I put it at rest. Means that if media player is working for a long time (more than 6 hours) and then I closed it and left the computer it restarts by itself. While I’m writing documents, chatting on messanger, it doesn’t restart. It restarts when I leave it. I don’t know why? If you know, please tell me.

  10. Kirolos, i suspected it would be the power, i didnt replace it yet, i will soon and let you know,, and maybe something wrong with the version of WMP or windows itself, because it gives me sometimes windows error, i may have to format it. i will let you know anyway🙂
