PC Resetting whilst cold

  1. Folks.

    Pleasure to meet you all. I'm new to this Forum so please be gentle! :blush:

    Really odd this one. My PC is switched off overnight (and yes I know there's much debate on whether they should be left on constantly!) but when we switch it on in the morning it resets several times. :(

    Windows will load, we'll go to log in and it resets as though one of us has pressed the reset button on the case. When windows re-starts we get an error report dialogue which states we had suffered from a blue screen error. We didn't! :mad:

    Once the machine has been on for 10 minutes or so it's fine. No resets and no crashes. :approve:

    So I'm guessing that it's happening until the computer warms up. Question is, WHY?! :confused:

    Any ideas would be HUGELY appreciated. ;)

    reseat all your components. check your ram with memtest 86+ and consider replacing your PSU.

    Thank you very much for your advice. I will follow it to the letter and if the problem persists I will post another reply.

    Fingers, toes and everything else firmly crossed!
