Windows hangup and autorestart

By arvienmb ·
To all,

My pc is hanging up and sometimes it will auto restart. I've isolated my memory and reinstall windows but still problem exists. My suspect is my processor since my motherboard is new. Is there other ways to diagnose or to check the problem without testing my memory, processor, power supply and motherboard to other pc? Is there a software or tool to check or diagnose my hardware. Thank you.

A place to start...

First, I would do a complete RAM test using MemTest86:

It's a free download to create a bootable diskette or CD. The test will take several hours to run (sometimes four or more). Once it is done you will know if the problem lies with the RAM or not.

Next, here's a free CPU Stability tester:
and here is a more involved tester - Prime95:

Your situation could be caused by an over-heating processor. Make sure all the fans (specially the processor fan) are working properly and there is adequate ventilation in the case. One way to check is to run with the case open to see if the issue goes away or lessens.

I hope this helps.
Please let me know.
