My problem is different: when I shut down the computer, it restarts itself. To completely turn it off, I need to catch it when it does the first beep at boot-up and hold the power button in until it turns itself off. I have been all over the settings in Win XP and the CMOS but can not find where this restart thing is specified.

As the rest of these folks my comp. restarts itself also. It has been doing it for around a month or 2. I have completly reformatted the computer complete wipe of the hard drive brand new win xp installed. So im pretty sure it's not software problems. I went and bought a brand new gig stick of ram to replace the old one so i don't think thats the problem. I have done the do not restart my system function. I have a Speed fan test and a DTemp program all of the speeds and temperatures are green checked. It has never given me a blue screen just automatically restarts. it mainly does it when i go to play WOW Conquer Online or Diablo 2. But it still does it when i go to watch a Video and sometimes when im just chatting on aim. I was thinking on trying a new power supply since it's cheap but if you think it is probally something else instead of the power supply i would love to hear it. Thanks for your help.

Hi, I've recently upgraded from 1 gig/1 stick single channel ddr2-533 to 2gig/2sticks dual channel ddr2-800 on a motherboard with dual channel ddr2-533. Now my computer restarts while running application that require heavy cpu usage (Usually hash-checking on a bittorrent client). I've noticed that my cpu temperature is high just before it restarts. After every subsequent boot-up, the automatic restart happens at shorter and short intervals even when no heavy applications are running.

I've run a standard memory diagnostic on the new sticks and it turned up nothing. I have yet to find time to run a full diagnostic and neither have I tested each stick individually (I assumed, before reading this article, that both were fine because of the diagnostic).

My question is this: Is it possible that upgrading to 2 gigs and 2 sticks is causing my cpu to overheat? My 3 ghz pentium D also seems to be naturally hot, running at just under 60 degrees when idle.

EDITOR'S NOTE: That's going to be hard to diagnose. Can you run with just ONE of the new RAM sticks?

I also had random restarts, it turned out that problem was caused by bad capacitors in power supply unit. It's replaced now and system seems to be stable.

I only seem to get restarts when I use ANY kind of media player. First I thought it was that microsoft junk, since it really abuses the system for it`s useless graphics interface.

but winamp, vlc, anything that displays videofiles seems to just reboot. not on all files, can`t really tell what file causes reboots.

Something`s definately not right in the system`s multimedia handling. either that or audio/video codecs are F*-ing up the system.

my motherboard boots itself when power is is fed to it. it boots without you pressing the power button. the processor fan also comes on by itself. please may you tell me what's up?

EDITOR'S NOTE: Maybe the power button is stuck in the ON position, or the connector on the board is shorted.
