Hi guys,

Itís been a while!

Not sure if this is the right forum.

My computer had been restarting itself with no rhyme or reason for some time, so I installed new fans, new processor paste (it was dry), reinstalled Windows XP (SP3), Kaspersky and minimum software, and thought I had remedied the problem. But it has started to happen again. It happens on average once a day; it has occurred several times with no programs open and not working at the computer.

I ran:

Check disc -- nothing, no errors
Mt 86plus -- 32 passes overnight, no errors
HD Tune -- .2% damaged blocks on C-Drive; .1% damage on D-Drive

Please help, thx!

Download Speedfan (The download link is to the right), and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows.
The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
To make sure we are getting all the correct information it would help us if you were to attach a screenshot like the one below of your Speedfan results.

To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard.
  • It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
  • Now go to Start and then to All Programs
  • Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
  • In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
  • Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
  • Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop
  • Attach it to your next reply
