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 on several different brands of machines. I suggest replacing the power supply and if that doesn't work you can look for drivers or resources but these usually freeze a machine instead of rebooting them

Top 2 reasons for unattended reboots are mismatched ram and overheating. If your techs added ram to either of these machines recently, check that first. Install new (matching) chips and see if problem disappears.

1. Check your CPU fan. If its bad system will reboot.
2. Check your UPS
3. Check memory and video.

# problem is heat, cpu fan failure goes hand in hand with that.
