  1. hi, thnx for reading...
    Ive built my first PC with the following specs:
    ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe Socket 939
    TWINX1024-3200C2 / DDR-400 (XMS-3200C2) / 2-3-3-6
    AMD 3700+
    eVGA 128-P2-N368-TX Geforce 6600GT 128MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16
    Seagate 200GB Drive
    430 Watt Supply

    Ive installed Windows XP, and am having random computer restarts. Power and overheating do not seem to be issues and ive checked for loose connections. I have not tweaked timing or voltage settings in my BIOS. Ive updated my BIOS and drivers. Anyone have any insight to what could be the problem?

    Do you know what psu you have(make/model), and the aperages it puts out. You could have an malfuntioning psu(or a very low quality one that doesn't output it's rated capacity) causing the problem.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Apart from the suggestions already given. It could be a ram/hardware problem, or a driver/software problem.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions.

    If that doesn`t help. Zip 5 or 6 minidumps together, and attach them here.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    VMM. Please start a new thread, otherwise this thread may get confusing. I have looked at your minidumps, and will post my findings in your new thread.
