Pc's rebooting on own.

By bmcelmury ·
We are having a problem a few of our pc's rebooting on there own. They are on a network that is running Win NT. The servers are not setup to reboot any networked system. Any suggestions. P.S Could it be possible that there is a windows update that is not loaded. The systems vary, one is a 266 dell w/Win95 loaded. The other is a dell 400 w/win98 loaded. Both are XPS mini towers.

Thanks for anr info.

I have had this problem with only Dell PC's. Call and have them send you out a new power supply. They know it is a problem with some systems. They would reboot on there own. Replacing the power supply did the trick every time.

board make sure you hear the click of the
retainer clips
and you might what to do the same with the
sound and vid cards if they aren't integrated into the board hope it helps

Check your ram, I had a very similar issue with a Dell running Windows 2000 which I replaced the motherboard and harddrive, but it came down to ram. Try just swapping chips with another machine for a bit.

In my experience as a electronic technician, most problems that have reboot symptom are caused by overrun powersupplies. There just isn't enough power to run all hardware interface. When this happens the "not enable" signal on your motherboard is triggered resetting all circuits. This in-turn restarts your PC.

Suggestion: Replace powersupple with one with more power out.
