Computer restarting randomly Tags: New Build Computer Graphics Cards Motherboards Systems Last response: January 21, 2010 3:21 PM in Systems Share peterboi January 17, 2010 4:24:17 PM I have upgraded my old computer by purchasing a new motherboard, PSU, and graphics card. I even upgraded to Windows 7. But for the smallest thing i do, the screen goes to a solid color screen (Black and brown so far) or a blue screen with white stripes for 5 seconds then my computer restarts it self. This began to happen today. I've had this build for 3 days now. The first 2 days was working fine. Could this be hardware failure? I have tried to reinstall drives. My Specs are: Motherboard: ASUS M4A77D CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ (2.9 GHz) Graphics Card: Radeon HD 5770 (XFX) RAM: 3 Gigs (2x 1gigs, 2x 512mb) Hard drive: 320 Gigs PSU: Antec Basiq 550 watts OS: Windows 7 More about : computer restarting randomly BohleyK January 17, 2010 4:27:40 PM Its probably your RAM since you have two completely different sets in your motherboard m 0 l peterboi January 17, 2010 4:30:14 PM It the same ram that was in my old system. It didn't restart it. And it worked fine yesterday and the day before. m 0 l Related resources Computer Randomly Restarting - Forum Computer Randomly restarting with no errors or bsod - Forum Computer restarting randomly! - Forum Computer randomly restarting - Forum My computer keeps restarting itself randomly, why is this? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Well so far theres no problems m 0 l peterboi January 21, 2010 3:21:38 PM The problem is back. Been about a week since it was stabled. Seems to stable itself out when not using Aero themes. Crashes alot when using Opera. Just scrolling will cause flashing screen and then it goes to a full coloured screen usually black or blue with bright blue stripes. Crashed a few times when closing a window. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SolvedComputer Restarting Randomly?
