Spontaneous rebooting or intermittent lockups during normal operation. Intermittent parity check or other memory-type errors. Hard disk and fan simultaneously failing to spin (no +12v). Overheating due to fan failure. Small brownouts cause the system to reset. Electric shocks felt on the system case or connectors. Slight static discharges disrupt system operation. ..and as always: If at any time you let the Magic Smoke out of the computer, that is always a bad, bad thing... Can't find your answer ? Ask !
