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.

If the power saver options are enabled in the bios.. try disabling them. Also, put a UPS on one PC but not the other. See if the problems leaves the PC that has the UPS. That's a good indication that you may be getting power brownouts.

As far as I know, these main culprits are heat (overclocking or faulty fans/ventilation)

1. Defective power supply

2. Bad power input (from the electrical socket or power company)

3. Defective memory (or memory installation) (related to a short between the Ram and the mainboard)

4. Defective mainboard (internal short)

5. Bad case installation (something is a hair away from shorting)

6. Having DMA on when your Motherboard or Bios doesn't fully support it.

7. Your PC is plugged into a AC plug that may be marginal or have a cycling appliance on it like a heater or air conditioner
Reboots are usually caused by electrical shorts.
