computer restart by itself.. minidump..

  1. my computer has been restarting by itself.. the stop sign always changes everytime it restarts.. so i figure can someone check my minidump file? cause i don't know how to read the .DMP file..

    my specification
    Asus P4P800
    2 x Memory DDR400 PC3200 512
    Power supply 400W
    Geforce FX5200 128MB
    intel P4 2.4GHz HT

    i checked the temperature of my mobo, the processor is about 22C and the mobo is about 35C. i think that's ok..
    i thought something wrong with my computer so i formatted.. so i can only give 1 minidump file.. for this minidump i only used one memory RAM only to figure out if one of the memory is broken.. cheers

    here what came up when i checked with event viewer
    Error code 1000007f, parameter1 00000008, parameter2 80042000, parameter3 00000000, parameter4 00000000.

    thanks alot before

    hi and welcome to techspot! :)

    there could be several causes for your problem.

    defective/cheap power supply, motherboard short circuit, defective/damaged/incompatible RAM.

    first lets start with you power supply. what brand is is and how many amps can it provide on each rail? (this info will be printed on the side of the PSU itself and is viewable without removing it)

    you can check the RAM for errors by running memtest86 (google for it)

    and what do you mean by "stop sign" ???

    to stop the PC from retarting itself before you get a chance to vew the error message, go into your system properties control panel, click advanced, and under startup and recovery uncheck the "automatically restart" button. this will allow you to see the full error message and associated system file.

    my power supply brand is OMNI i think its the generic type im gonna change it tonite and see how it goes..
    unfortunately i cant test my memory cause it takes hours and usually my comp is gonna restart before the test finish...

    and the rail amps are

    14A 25A 12A 0.5A 0.5A 2.5A

    even if the PSU is not the source of your problem, it would be very wise to replace it anyways. 12amps on the 12v rail is not enough for a modern system.

    when you buy you new PSU, make sure you get a quality brand like Antec, Enermax, Fortron, Sparkle, PC power and cooling... to name a few ;)) do not buy another cheapie. here's a good guide to selecting a good quality PSU ans which brands to avoid. they have suggestions for every price range

    thx for the info on power supply,
    i changed the PSU into antec 430 True power 2.0
    but the problem still arised...
    for temporary i just used 1 slot only and the problem is reduced a bit perhaps my mobo is broken...
    is it possible to change the mobo and still the same chipset?
