hello, well, i am currently working on my bosses computer. I work at a mall. Basically he uses it for scheduling and checking his email. The computer worked fine up until a couple of days ago. The computer was OFF and a storm blew by. The power to the mall went out for about 20 seconds, and when it came back on, half of the mall had a brownout. During this brownout he repeatedly attempted to turn on the computer, however it kept restarting about 5 mins after booting. the computer still reboots randomly when i try to log in. I booted into safe mode and the computer didnt reboot itself. This confused me into thinking it was a software issue. I even tryed booting from the last know good configuration, and nothing. i tryed running the system restore to restore it to a day prior to the system failure and that didnt work. then i checked the event log and no problems occured until the day of the storm and the next boot of the computer. I recieved and event id of 1003 and an error code of 9c. so... i researched some of these messages online and saw that error code 9c is a hardware issue, dealing with either of these things: ram, mobo, cpu, psu. i replaced the ram with a known good stick, and it still reboots. im goin nuts here! can you help me?
