A7V600 with AMD XP2500 restarting!

  1. Hi
    My computer is restarting randomly. well not restarting but the monitor goes black, keyboard locks up (numlock scroll lock caps lock are all stuck on their positions) and i have to restart manually. The heat of the CPU after a restart in bios is about 60 Degrees Celsius and in speedfan during normal usage between 50 and 55.
    System Specs are:
    AMD XP 2500
    Asus A6V700 Motherboard
    2x 256DDR ram

    Can anyone help with this problem? Ive had it looked at a couple times but whenever the tech looks at it, it never restarts!!! I emailed him the problems later he said it could be heat, Mobo, Ram or CPU malfunction is there any diagnostic tool i can use to perform a diagnostic?
    Thanks

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    It may well be a heat problem.

    Have you tried cleaning your heatsink, fans etc with a little compressed air?

    Also clean the fan/heatsink on your graphics card.

    A build up of dust and debris can certainly cause heat problems.

    You can also download Mother board monitor 5 (mbm5) and also CPUIDLE which will help to cool your cpu. You can get both these programmes from www.majorgeeks.com

    Regards Howard

    Ps you can also download Memtest86+ from www.memtest.org

    This will test your RAM for errors.

    Let it run for at least seven passes. :wave: :wave:
