I'm having lots of problems with my PC.
- When I'm in Windows XP, the PC restarts by itself for no reason, and it restarts more often when I'm playing AoE.
- When trying to install Fedora or OpenSUSE(even XP), the PC would lock up. A lot.
Here are the specs of my PC:
P4 3.0 GHz with HT
ATI Radeon 9200 SE (tried switching with my GeForce4 MX 4000, same things)
WDC 80 GB HDD <- when the PC restarts, I hear something like a hard disk failure sound (tried switching with a Seagate, still the same, although no wierd sounds with it)
The temperature is usually between 40-45(C) at no load, and between 50-60(C) after using the PC for sometime, or doing heavy work.
I've got the Ultimate BootCD, I ran memtest86+, when I went to sleep, woke up, traveled and came back and there was no problems. I ran that CPU stresstest for 2-3 hours, no errors.
I want to know, how can I find out what is causing these problems? The MoBo can be replaced for free with another one if I find out it has any problem.
Yep. No difference. That was some time ago though, so I'll maybe try again later today(or tomorrow)
I know you listed your temps but are you using a program like TAT that logs the temps while you playing the game, thats the only real way to know what the temps are during gameplay.
Id suspect overheating, or a power supply issue.
Excuse my ignorance, but what's TAT? and yes, I didn't log the temperatures while playing, but I will.. as soon as I know what is TAT
Seems you guys are so sure of the power supply, I'll change it now
BTW, what should be the 'normal' temps for a P4 3.0 GHz HT?
