Preferred Solution: My PC restarts during power failure despite UPS

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: My PC restarts during power failure despite UPS

My guess is your power supply in your PC uses active PFC (Power Factor Control) while your uninterruptible power supply is likely rated for a passive PFC.

Hello All Computer hardware wizards,
My Dell Notebook a Vostro 1500, 1.6Ghz 4G Ram, 250GB Hardrive and OS: Vista Home Edition, suddenly acted up yesterday.
1) At first my screen displayed random horizontal color lines (sort of blinking randomly). When that did not change after a few minutes, I 'hard' powered off the Laptop.
2) When I pushed power on, it dispalyed the LED's for Num Lock, Cap Lock and Scroll Lock. The Cap Lock LED was blinking and the Num Lock, Scroll LocK LED's remained continously on. SCREEN was completely black.....no display!
3) After about 30 seconds all 3 LED's shut off and computer went dead.

I repeated this several times. Took battery off, tried unplugging from 110V power etc. Still does the same as described in paragraph 3.

PLEASE HELP! PLEASE HELP!
 

A:Screen Failure & Startup power failure. After 30 seconds laptop powers off

That doesn't sound too healthy!

How old is the laptop? If it is under warranty I would get it checked that way.

My initial thought, although not a certainty, would be a problem with the graphics card itself from your description.

Upon an attempted restart I get the Bsod for which I have attached the files ( All the minidumps.) I run a Dell 5521 R and have updated the drivers, uninstalled and reinstalled them too. Kindly help ASAP as I require my wifi urgently tomorrow.
Note: After restart the drivers get refreshed automatically and start working for sometime. And then the same issue. Please help.VATSAL-Tue_02_09_2016_101910_61.zip

Yesterday my laptop suddenly refuse to get power from AC source. Following the instructions on the web, I first assumed AC adapter faillure.But the adapter works well.The tiny LED next to the power inlet went off, although Windows catches the AC adapter driver and seems working.The last job I did before the problem was updating the BIOS, which is instructed by HP Support program.  I bring it to the service center, but they refused to take it since it's not a Korean-sold model (I bought it from the other country).Quite annoying because they did not take any questions at all, just repeating 'we don't accept that, go away'. Can anybody give me a solution?The battery is only half-filled, and after it dries I think it would be turned into a piece of brick.I really need a help. Thankyou in advance!

A:BSODs after possible power failure - Kernel-Power Event ID:41

Your .dmp file shows a stop error of 0x124 which is a general hardware error .





Quote:
A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress


Some generic advice.

If you are overclocking STOP. Return to the default settings at least for now.
If you are running a RAID update its driver.

Ok so lately I have been getting a BSOD at very random times and it looks like a Diver Power State failure. SO all of my friends and every website I go to makes it seem like I need to get a PSU. Right now I have a Quad Core and a 8800GT and 375W PSU. So my friend told me to get a new 700W PSU.

So, if the only fix is to get a new PSU? I tried to rollback my GPU driver but it didn't help.

So any ideas?
 

A:Driver Power Failure = New Power Supply?

You're greatly risking the health of your whole computer while running with such underpowered power supply. Do yourself a favour and get a quality PSU. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341010 That's the cheapest one that is enough and of good quality that I could find with a quickish search.

A:Power cord or power jack failure

hi and welcome to TSG can you use your battery to power it untill you get what you need off.if you can get hold of another known good power supply for your make and model you can try it if that does not work then the problem is likely to be the jack point. i would not advise you to attempt the repair rather you took it for repair,laptops are a real devil to access and have many delicate parts which are easily broken even by the best

A:Power failure, system does not power up, really need some advice

Your warped and melted video graphics is pure evidence that you have to upgrade the video card, and deal with your computer cooling system at the same time.
First, disassemble your CPU from your CPU fan so you can replace the thermal paste with the thinnest possible layer that will enable the cpu to connect with the cooling fan assembly.
Then look at the amount of dust, dirt, fibres and hair. Are air ports blocked?
You might want to replace the CPU fan as wll. It is smart to replace all fans every year or so.
The cost of cooling fans is low. They might be next on your budget for replacment.
You may not be able to afford it, but I would not run the computer until you can do some simple upgrades.

A:XP start up failure continually restarts

If it is that old, not having your system backed up means that you will lose everything soon. All hard drives fail, and usually long before 8 years. That is one possibility for what has already happened.

You could try disabling that driver in the Recovery Console:

disable cpqdfw

Be sure to record the machine's response to that command so that you will be able to reverse it.

We are having a discussion at work about the following subject and would like to hear some other views on this issue.
The system setup:
Microsoft Windows XP Professional (or really any Computer Operating System)
Running applications like Word, Access, Excel, Other venders stuff, etc
The Issue:
Power is cut to system, either by unplugging the power cord or holding the power button until the system is brought down hard.
The points of discussion:
1)After the system is restarted, all the OS and all software will work fine.
2) After the system is restarted, a system reboot (warm or cold) should be performed. The reason behind this is to allow any databases, and/or open data file that were opened at the time of the power interruption to be closed normal shutdown procedure.

What do you think???

A:Power Cut vs Restarts Question

Depends on what the system was doing at the time of the power loss . . I have seen systems come right back . . I have seen them corrupted and needing a reinstall.

My computer works fine once it has started, however after a reset of the computer when it tries to boot up within about 7 seconds it turns off and attempts to turn on again. It continuously does this until I switch it off, on the tower, on the power supply or at the point. If I wait a couple of hours and attempt to turn it on again it boots up fine, it is a continuing problem.

Lately my house has been having a lot of power cuts, pretty much every day, something happens and the mains trips out, still trying to sorce it.

When i put the power back on my pc starts up automatically, even though it was off, but plugged in when the cut occured. When it restarts i have to reset my BIOS (time, date, 1st hard drive, boot sequence). I'm convinced theres nothing wrong with the CMOS battery, as it will keep all details before i started having these problems, and on the odd occasion i can get a few days without a power cut.

Having recently refreshed my computer due to some BSOD errors, it seems my problem has been replaced with random restarts instead. These appear to happen at random, whether I'm gaming or just browsing the web. The only consistency with the restarts was an error in the Event Viewer which states that the source was Kernel-Power, Event ID 41, Task Category (63).

Aside from the random restarts, I've noticed instances where my computer has noticeably lagged to the point where I am unable to load games, but a quick restart often solves this issue.

I've also run a virus scan with no results.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, I just changed my PSU for a new one. However, when I run the computer, it just beeps and restarts itself after the Win XP boot screen. I've checked all the connections and they seem perfectly ok. When I re-install my old PSU, the computer works fine. What could possibly be wrong with the new one that XP restarts itself?? The old one was a 400W while the new one is 500W by the way...thanks

Hi there, I suppose this issue could be seen as a need for a tweak (but apologise if I am posting in the wrong forum).

I have had this issue for a while with my Dell Studio XPS 1645 laptop.

It is a guess, but i'd say 5/10 times the power cord comes out of the laptop (for whatever reason - moving it etc) then the laptop will simply black screen and instantly restart and boot up again without an error message or any information as to why.

This doesn't make any sense to me because every time I do have the battery pack inserted into the laptop and over 30% battery life (this is when ill plug the charger in).

If anyone has any ideas, please do post that would be super.

Thanks a lot, Nick

A:Laptop restarts 50% of the time when the power cord comes out

The power cord issue could just be a red herring.

How long have you had this computer? The reason I ask is that it's quite possible the CMOS battery wants changing.

The batteries normally have a life of three to five years depending whether it is a rechargeable battery or not.

You mention inserting the laptop's battery pack. Is there any particular reason why you remove it in the first place?

Hi and welcome to TSF

The power failure may have corrupted the Windows installation. Try booting into "Safe mode" and back up any important data on the Windows drive.

Then perform a repair installation of Windows - read this guide to learn how to do that.

A:Random Restarts once a day [Kernel-Power Error]

Kernel-power usually means that the PC was forcefully restarted, like when someone hold the power-off button for 5 seconds and such. But forget that, it sounds like you've got yourself some kind of hardware error, as they almost never leave any logs on Event viewer. Ask whoever replaced your components to have a look, or if it was you, I'd say try running diagnostic programs to see what gives, just to make sure that the rams, GPU and HDD are okay. Also go into BIOS and have a look at the voltage on the 12v and post the values from it here. Just so you can cross them off the list of potential errors. In my case it turned out to be my PSU causing the freezes/crashes. The diagnostics I've ran are "geeksquad MRI" and some other from "Hiren's Boot", they can be both found on the internet.

We need to see the crash dumps.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

If still Crash dumps are failing to be recorded, take a camera snap of the BSOD screen and let us see it.

At least that information is needed before we suggest anything to you.

For the time being, take some precautionary actions.

Uninstall MagicDisc. The SCSI (mcdbus) installed by it is enough to cause BSODs.

Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
Click on the Start button
Type ?msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the ?Startup? tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus and the touchpad driver, SynTPEnh.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.

Help! and less powerful PSU but then we also discovered that the power cord I'd been using for my PCs going back several years was a problem Replaced the power cord and the problem was completely solved Well for five months or so anyway Here is a log of what has happened since Computer spontaneously restarts upon insertion of USB card reader in one of the front panel slots This happens twice both logged by event log Pressing the power button to wake computer from sleep quot wakes quot computer for under five seconds and it then shuts down Process repeats Start computer from back panel switch after shutting off and I see message I've never seen before counting from - fast about checking or updating BIOS and then computer restarts gets to Windows screen and says quot resuming Windows quot with no acknowledgment of the weirdness Computer resumes exactly where it was like nothing was wrong Event s not logged Due to a brief power failure in house computer shuts down and then restarts with power resumption Event is logged Computer is awoken normally first thing in the morning but after about two minutes spontaneously restarts Event is logged Call my favored computer repair place which advises to check drivers and BIOS All drivers and BIOS are up to date I think Drivers yes BIOS version is from and GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket - GA-H M-S V rev says that's the current version After six days of flawless working computer spontaneously restarted about two minutes after logging in This was after being in sleep mode for several hours so CPU or case temperature could should not have been a factor Event is logged Woke from sleep and it spontaneously restarted after two minutes Event is logged Here is how this all shakes out For about five months there were no problems and the pattern of the time was restart computer at bedtime wake from sleep and login in the morning go to work wake from sleep upon return from work restart at bedtime repeat A few times the computer would never sleep for a few days but that was the general pattern Then on inserting a USB card reader into the front panel twice in minutes restarted the computer the moment contact was made between reader and port the same USB port reads and works with thumb drives and other devices without a problem I have replaced the card reader Since then except for the power failure in our house yes I should probably get a UPS all of the computer odd behavior the first event above and spontaneous restarts everything else has followed by about two minutes my using the power button to wake the computer from sleep There have been times since then where I've used the power button and four of them including the last two have caused the computer to spontaneously restart about two minutes after it wakes from sleep Meanwhile especially on weekends the computer runs for straight hours usually in use and never spontaneously restarts Actually from late afternoon on for about hours the computer never slept was user-restarted twice and ran fine with no spontaneous restarts What is going on I really doubt it's the power supply or cord The computer runs too long and too well without a problem I really doubt it's memory for the same reason I really doubt it's malware I am very safe in my computing practices and have never introduced malware to a computer I've used and the computer is swept nightly I really doubt it's a temperature issue The computer goes and goes hours over the weekend for example then sleeps and spontaneously restarts in two minutes and is fine after t...

A:Spontaneous restarts, perhaps seemingly caused by power switch? Help!

A lot of the 1155 sockets have had issues with sleep, but it sounds like you may have other issues as well. What case do you have. What you're saying is almost every time you touch the FP connections you have a restart. That could be caused by a short on the front panel of the case. Some cases have had long running issues with that.

Hi, I bought a Acer V3-372 in january and started to use it as main in august.

It restarts by itself 2-3 day apart without and blue screen, when doing tasks like surfing the web, listening to music or when laptop is idling.

The laptop is fully updated with the latest bios, drivers and win updates.

Checked with memtest, no errors.

Couldn't find any dump-files to attached.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Vladz0r,

Unless you see a bluescreen, or find a dump file located at [windows partition]\windows\minidump\ because you weren't there when the bluescreen showed up, its not a bluescreen.
If this is the case (not having a dump file in the minidump folder) please create a new thread in the Performance and Maintenance forum

Hello everyone My problem is that my computer suddenly started to shutdown in the middle of nowhere It have happened for a month now but getting worse and worse for each day When it shut downs it will try and turn itself on but is stuck in a never-ending boot-loop until its shutdown completely and i wait an hour or sometimes minutes are enough My windows log tells me that its a Power Kernel error This is what i have already researched and done so far Overnight Memtest RAM is showing no errors Voltage from BIOS seems alright V V and V for the V V and V marks It primarily happens when the PC is working hard so D software like Autodesk programs and PC games So i (63) BSOD, without Restarts error. Kernel Computer Power 41 downloaded OCCT to test the PSU and GPU since i read that it is most likely one of those that is the problem Both the PSU and the GPU D test made the computer shutdown within minutes of the test The temperatures didn't seem out of the ordinary though So now i am stuck in the process of finding out if its the GPU or PSU Bought Computer Restarts without BSOD, Power Kernel 41 (63) error. a new GPU in August and that was working fine for that month or so until the error started occurring late September I hope someone can bring me some light maybe tell me if i can narrow the problem down further Thank you in advance - Chris

Hello everyone,

I've recently built a new system using the X99 platform and have been experiencing a problem. Every once and a while, my PC will just randomly restart with no BSOD screen. I have ran Prime95 on Blend mode for 8 hours with no errors and haven't been able to replicate the restarts.

Any tips are welcome! Thanks!

hi gurus,
i own an old computer, p4 2.4ghz on an intel gbf865 with nvidia fx5200, it is running win 7 ultimate.
although the os runs pretty smooth with aero effects and all. and plays 720p movies with out stuttering the only problem it has is that it restarts automatically .
i have had this problem for a while now.
earlier BSOD pointed audio driver error so i removed it and am using USB audiocard. it works fine
the event viewer shows error 41 kernal power error, bugcheckcode 0 and other codes as 0x0
i wanted to ask could this be because of SMPS/psu although it says 400watts but its locally built and so could be erronous.

Hello vishrocks and welcome to Seven Forums. You might find this Microsoft KB article helpful:






Quote:
The system randomly restarts and no Stop error BugcheckCode is listed, or the computer is completely unresponsive (hard hang)
To check whether this scenario is occurring, press the CAPS LOCK key on the keyboard. When you do this, if the CAPS LOCK light on the keyboard does not change when you press the CAPS LOCK key, the computer may be completely unresponsive (hard hang).


This scenario usually indicates a problem with the hardware. Another possibility is that a driver may cause this problem. To help isolate the problem, check the following items:Overclocking: Disable overclocking and see whether the issue happens when the system is run at the correct speed.
Check the memory: Verify the memory by using a memory checker. Verify that each memory chip is the same speed and that it is configured correctly in the system.
Power Supply: Make sure that the power supply has enough wattage to appropriately handle the installed devices. If you added memory, installed a newer processor, installed additional drives, or added external devices, such devices may require more energy than the current power supply can provide consistently.
Overheating: Check whether the system is overheating by examining the internal temperature of the hardware.
Defaults: Use system defaults, and run the system.
If you see that the computer generates a Stop error that contains a BugcheckCode value that is not reported in an event ID 41, modify the restart behavior for the computer. To do this, follow these steps:Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
Click Advanced system settings.
Click the Advanced tab.
In the Startup and Recovery section, click Settings.
Click to clear the Automatically restart check box.

My machine is getting older still works like a champ but some wonky things are happening power working is battery pc tho failures even packup during restarts Last week during a storm the computer restarted I have always used battery backups with avr and it really shocked me It never gave me an error just restarted itself So I checked it and my battery back up seemed to pc restarts even tho battery packup is working during power failures not be doing its job I unplugged everything and plugged in a lamp and then unplugged the back up and the light flashed I could not remember when I bought it but I was sure it was over years So I bought another one well the same thing is happening and this time I installed the monitoring pc restarts even tho battery packup is working during power failures software and did a self test and the computer still restarted itself and the battery back up says it is working fine I changed the outlet the back up was using too the test with the light on the new one seems to show the back up is working too I did have a new power supply installed before I replaced the back up cause it seemed the fans were not working in it that was determined at the place I had it installed it was not working but I didn t have time for a diagnosis And now I even have a weirder problem too half my icons that used to show up in the task bar are not there now the things I always closed I am happy about but now I don t have icon for my usb things nothing to click to safely remove hardware The things that have changed in the last bit of time is that I had a problem with my avg security suite it seemed that when I started to do anything using a bunch a bandwidth I would lose my dialup connection and I asked the support if all the filters and stuff running could be causing that Just asked they suggested upgrading to that might solve any of those kinds of problems cause it was supposed to be less resource intensive Dumb me did it Now I am talking with their tech people about why this version s firewall will not configure One change but that major change was after the power supply change and the battery back up change To install the software for the battery back up I added a powered usb hub and I think that is when my icon for the usb disappeared but not sure seems that the some of the icons had been intermittently being gone since I installed the new avg stuff But the weirdest thing is other than that stuff my machine is working well It is a velocity micro gamers edge model p gigs ram pro still as snappy as it was when I got it back in sept of The main reason I noticed the fans in the old power supply not working was because I have temp gauges for the ambient processor and video card installed and I know they are not really right but it gave me an idea of what was going on and the temps had increased like degrees c Checked and they were not moving I just really worry about the restarting thing I never get an error or anything just restarts I know in the last few weeks it has done that more than in the whole time I have owned it I know all this stuff is really weird and probably not connected but gees this has been the best computer I have ever had and believe it or not nothing has ever been done aside from the power supply and a harddrive failure right after I got it no reformatting or anything Maybe that is what is needed but since I don t do that myself my experience is no matter who I get to work on my machines they are never ever the same I would rather just buy a new one I guess mainly does anyone have any idea of these things sealing the doom for my machine Like I should be ready for the worse nbsp

good day,

I have not been able to play SWTOR MMO. During gameplay my PC will shutdown then restart to the safe mode menu. It happens randomly 2 to 8 minutes into gameplay. Currently this happens with this game only. I do not know much about computers but I noticed the event viewer says kernel-power event 41. The PC is brand new month old. I a little frustated because I do not know what to do so any help or advice would be appreciated

A:kernel-power event 41 random restarts playing SWTOR

Kernel-power event ID 41 is quite a common error most of us experience at times.
Check the Event Source. { That may help us to pinpoint the issue a bit better.}

If it happens only when using that game take careful notice of exactly what you are doing at that time.
If you are overclocking STOP. {at least to test}
Return to the default settings.

A:Frequent random restarts, Critical Kernel-Power, Event ID 41

Update: My computer just restarted again a few minutes ago! Was playing Guild Wars 2, when all of a sudden, the computer turned off, the fan led's were still on in the back, and the computer was making a lot of beeping, then it rebooted with the keyboard not working. By forcing a power cycle, it's up and running again. I'm pretty scared right now as I only have this computer.

I'm guessing the video card needs to be replaced, due to Problem 2, as many people with this exact same card, same brand (HIS) have mentioned similar issues happening, with the screen randomly going black, etc., and having no choice but to power cycle to 'fix' it, prior to dying a few months later.

Reference 1: Rather disapointing HIS warranty/Support. | Hardware Heaven Forums

Reference 2: HIS IceQ Boost Clock H795QC3G2M Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - Newegg.com

Key note: I also decided to check the back of the video card, and didn't notice much air moving! This should be anything but the case, as the air should be pumping out the back due to the duel slot cooler design. The card 'appears' to be staying relatively cool, below 70 degrees C, but the cooler doesn't seem to be working properly. When I increase the fan speed significantly, from 1750 rpm's to about 3000 rpm's, it gets really loud, sounds a little off center/wobbly, and doesn't seem to be pushing much air out the back at all still, though you can actually start to feel it. I was literally able to put my finger on the outside metal grill comfortably, meaning the hot air is going out the wrong way. My old duel slot Radeon 4850 pushed air out the back of the case great, but this monster, which forced me to rearrange all my hard drives to make room, is just sad.

Anyone want to reply to this? I'm about ready to purchase a new video card, but go with a MUCH more reputable brand...probably ASUS, since I already have an ASUS motherboard and monitor, and have gone through their warranty process before. XFX is another possibility, though I know I'd need to register for the warranty within 30 days or so after purchase or it's void.

That said, Problem 1 is still a concern.

A:Power Failure

There are many, many possibilities.

Unless the PC "POSTs" (reaches the Power On Self Test stage, when it "beeps") there can be no display on a monitor. From what you say, ity is not booting and reaching POST.

It can be Power Supply Unit, Motherboard, CPU ... many possibilities. Make sure everything is securely plugged in inside the main computer case.

Hi all,

When I switch my computer on nothing happens!! No lights... nothing. This is probably so obvious but am I right in thinking that the power supply has given up. Could the switch be faulty? Is there an easy way to find the problem?

I have had problems recently, after fitting some more RAM into the machine the fan came loose. This was putting it into safe-mode when booting up etc. Fixed that and everything seemed to be running okay for a couple of days and then went to switch on one morning and nothing!

Also the new RAM I put in was pc133 and the board it's gone onto is a 100mhz. Could this have done some damage?
 

A:Power Failure???

The ram would not have anything to do with it. Sounds like you have a wire off.

Lets start from the beginning.

First check a lamp in the outlet and make sure you have current.

Second if you have current, on the back of the computer on the power supply do you have a on/off switch, some do which some people forget about and accidentially they get turned off when the machine is moved.

Next if all of the above are ok I would pull the cover and check the wires on the mother board, especially from the power supply to the mother board and make sure you have a good connection.

If this do not help, it is a good possibly the mother board might have gone bad.

Just hang in there, I am sure someone else will come up with something. There are so many things that can be overlooked by one person it is best to see what all have to say.

A:Power failure

This could be as simple as your power switch/button gone bad (hopefully). If you are handy with electronics you can check that. I'm sure you checked the rocker sw. at rear of PSU. (no offense intended) but I've done that one a few times. You need a friend nearby with known working parts to put in your machine to eliminate things one by one. I guess you need to ask yourself how much $ you want to put into this machine, or a new one. Find that friend (with parts) first, Good Luck.

I had a power failure last night while using my two computers. Fortunately, my good one is still working as good as new. Unfortunately, my old one did not share the same fate. Now, whenever it starts up, it says that "Windows did not start successfully." It gives me five options from there:

1) Safe Mode
2) Safe Mode with Networking
3) Safe Mode with Command Prompt
4) Last Known Good Configuration
5) Start Windows Normally

All of these options freeze up the computer for at least 5 minutes (that's how long I waited before shutting it down). Unfortunately, I do not have a Windows XP startup or sytem recovery disc. Is it possible to make one? What else can I do? Although I have my files backed up, they are a few days old. I would at least like to get those files, if possible, before I wipe the hard drive, if necessary.

A:Power failure?!?!

Overheating

Description

When your CPU overheats, it will usually cause your computer to reboot. Video card overheating causes artifacts to appear on your screen, and usually wont cause reboots.

Diagnostic

Enter BIOS upon powering on your computer. Most BIOs have a hardware monitor. Use this to check your temperatures and fan speeds.

There is also hardware monitoring software that can check your temperatures from Windows. Your hardware monitoring software should have come with your motherboard. If you have no monitoring software, you can go to www.cpuid.com and get PC Wizard. PC Wizard is an easy to use program that will let you know what kind of temperatures you have, and what your fan speeds are at.

Causes

CPU overheating is usually caused by a failing CPU fan or improperly applied thermal paste. Fortunately, these 2 causes are easy to fix. If the CPU fan is dead, buy a new one and install it. If the thermal paste is improperly applied, remove the old paste off and apply new paste.

Another method is to take a house fan and open the case blowing the fan on high into the case.
if this helps we know its heat.

Power Supply (PSU) Problems

Description

It is important to have a functioning, proper size of PSU for your computer. Having an underpowered or failing PSU is often the cause for random reboots. To get an estimate of how powerful a PSU, use this PSU calculator and add about 50W to the minimum power the calculator gives you.

Diagnostic

The easiest and best way to diagnose a faulty PSU is to swap it with another one that you know is in good working order. Because everyone doesn't always have an extra PSU around, this might not be practical. Other than swapping, the diagnosis of a faulty PSU might be because no other problems seem to be causing the random reboots.

Flowchart for ATX Power Supply Repair
Causes

PSUs just die after a while. Just like most electrical components, they age and die. Often, a PSU will make a loud noise, or let out some smoke. Sometimes, though, the PSU will die silently. Sometimes the PSU will die due to overheating because its fan died.
RAM

Description

Faulty RAM and RAM slots can cause random errors/reboots.

Diagnostic

The best way to determine if RAM is your problem is to run your computer with one stick at a time, and see if the problem occurs for either stick. This obviously doesn't apply if you only have one stick to begin with Also, try the RAM in different slots. The actual slots might be causing RAM-failing like problems. The next step is to run memtest86 to determine if you have faulty RAM.

Cause

Sometimes RAM is just faulty. Either it makes it past quality control at the manufacturer or it gets damaged during shipping. Because most Memory manufacturers have lifetime warranties on their products, either return the RAM to the retailer that you purchased it from or return the defective product to the manufacturer

I have a Shapphire HD 6870 that i just bought it ran perfectly for days until today when i tried to play black ops my game froze and went black. I tried to start up my computer but it never started up and i can hear my gpu fan turning on and off. I plugged in my old 4670 and same problem. My friend had kind of a similar problem that happened to him with hes sli 260's and the problem was hes motherboard. Could it be my ASUS M4A79XTD EVO motherboard thats causing the problem? Or my lowly RAIDMAX 530w that is crossfire and sli enabled. If you need anymore information about my specs or anything else just say.

UPDATE - I submitted a support ticket to SAPPHIRE so i can see what they say also.

A:Power Failure?

530W is too low for that card, to run anything high end I recommend 650W minimum also, if you want to run Xfire you will need 750W at least. Is there another machine you can test the card in? It sounds as though the card has caused a power surge and may have damaged it.

Hi,
I have a PC with GiGABYTE GA-945GM-S2 Motherboard.
From time to to the computer suffers from power failure and i have to turn it on again. When it happened last time, i went into the CMOS and Enabled the "System Fan Fail Warning". Whe the computer restarted, i got an alarm noise so i disabled this feature. I figure that i have some problems with the System fan, though, i would like to ask, if this can cause the computer to turn off. Is this design intent ? Namley, if the motehrborad suspect some hardware failure, it shuts down, to avoid disaster ? I went to GIGABYTE web site but I wasnt able to find any clue for this issue.
Need you advice.
Regards,
Tany
 

A:Power failure

Most likely is overheating.
Is your room temp high? If so you may need some extra heating.
Go to www.majorgeeks.com and download and run everest - this will give you some temps of your CPU and board; also the current from the PSU.
Let us know what you find?

Recently we had a upcoming storm so I unplugged the computer from the wall outlet. The next day when I plugged
it in, there was a loud sound as if an electrical breaker tripped. Now I have nothing and the power led light is off. My question is, if the power shut down, did it not go into the Mthd ? And if not, should I try replacing the power
module ? Need some advise before proceeding. OS XP SP3
Thanks,

Billjh
 

A:Power failure

The first question is and I hope you do not find it too basic, is the AC outlet good.
Have you tried other equipment in the same supply socket

The second question is - was the computer connected by way of an anti surge bar and have you checked it has not tripped

Thirdly, may we presume the fuse in the plug of the connecting lead to the computer is good

First time build (September 2012). Machine has been performing flawlessly then end of September 2013 starting randomly shutting down and restarting. No particular activity will trigger this event (no BSOD). I've run memtest, chkdsk, malwarebytes, gpu-z, cpu-z, Nothing seems out of the ordinary. Temperature ranges are consistently around 26C. I've left it on for the last 48 hours with the covers off and a fan blowing directly at the inside of the case and it has shutdown 8 times. This happens even when it is idling. Truly bizarre, definitely frustrating. Need some help here isolating this "gremlin" and regaining control of my machine. I;ve attached a minitoolbox report maybe that willl help you get a better picture.

Hi guys I have been having trouble with random restarts - they seem to happen more when I am playing video games even ones that are very easy to run and don't place much stress on the GPU CPU however it also happens when I am watching stuff just browsing the web when the PC is idling and so on It never shows me a bluescreen and it never leaves minidumps or any error logs that I am aware of the only thing it shows is Kernel Power Task Category error in the quot Event Viewer quot program My specs are - i k ASUS Gene VII z Motherboard gb Corsair RAM x gb Nvidia Seasonic Platinum w power supply gb Samsung SSD I have a bit of time to really focus on this lately and try to finally fix the issue so last night I was running memtest while I was asleep and found that my memory had lots thousands of errors on the Test Hammer Test part of memtest Today I individually tested each gb stick by itself in both the first slot AND restarts 63 41 Random Kernel Power Event without Task BSOD, Viewer the Random restarts without BSOD, Event Viewer Kernel Power 41 Task 63 second slot of the motherboard just running test on memtest and every single test had errors This RAM worked perfectly fine in my old computer for years so I find it incredibly unlikely that all sticks have decided to go bad at the same time so I was thinking it must be the motherboard But even then that means that memory slots are faulty at the same time this once again seems very unlikely does it not I was then reading about Test of memtest and a few people advised that it would be very unlikely for my test memory errors to even be responsible for my random restarts - apparently test picks up stuff that RAM would almost never come Random restarts without BSOD, Event Viewer Kernel Power 41 Task 63 across in day to day normal use So there's the story if Random restarts without BSOD, Event Viewer Kernel Power 41 Task 63 any of you can give me some advice which leads to me finding a solution I will be forever in your debt because at this point I am just at a complete loss at what to do - Is it likely to be my memory Or is it my motherboard Or does my memory failing test have no relevance whatsoever to the random restarts I have been having and am I wasting my time is it likely to be another issue like my GPU I have swapped out my PSU with a spare one One is gold one is platinum both very highly rated and the issue still occurred Thanks for any guidance you can offer

Are you monitoring the temps?
Are the RAM getting the correct timings? Check in BIOS. It is possible your RAMs are incompatible with the new board but I am not experienced with these stuff.

A couple weeks ago my computer all-of-the-sudden stopped turning on. When I press the power button, the lights turn on and the fans start spinning for less than a second, then everything turns off. If I press the power button again, nothing happens. I can get the computer to turn on for a split second again if I either unplug the computer, wait, and then plug it back in. The first thing that came to mind is that the PSU has died. Does this sound legitimate?

If the PSU has died, does anybody know of an inexpensive replacement that would work with my mobo and power needs? Thanks!
 

A:Power Supply Failure?

Typical of a power supply failure.

And the HP m7650n does not have enough power in the supply for that GeForce 7600 GT.

Borrow a power supply to test in yours, or get yourself a power supply tester such as the Apevia Power supply tester for about $10 - $12

Or just buy a new and quality power supply... locally or on line.

You have to be very careful to get one of the exact same size dimensions and with the same sockets... If you don't have a source, www.directron.com has a huge number from which to choose.
Good luck.

Hello all,

I am running windows xp on multiple systems for a small business.

When I boot up my machine, it will load just fine all the way until I enter user/pass to log into the domain. Then, the machine does a soft reset and starts the process all over again.

Anyone experienced this? My guess was a power supply issue. I have a different power supply, and will try that now.

Thoughts?

Thanks
 

A:Solved: Possible Power Failure?

Have you tried booting in "last known good configuration"? checked the ram? run chkdsk through the recovery console (chkdsk /r)? starting the comp with the minimum hardware required?

Did you just download sp2 and if so, are your bios and drivers up to date?

My ex-wife s computer an antique from years ago has recently been making strange loud noises Failure Abrupt Power that I suspected to be the hard drive Not wanting to lose her data she asked me to bring over an old HD I have to back-up files Abrupt Power Failure on While I had the case open I also took the time to use some canned air as it hadn t been dusted in what looked like its entire lifespan As well I took out a modem card and tried installing an old soundcard I had laying around When I d got everything in place and plugged it back in nothing happened when I turned it on No beeping no false start zilch So I reversed all of my moves and set it back up exactly as I d found it and tried again Nothing doing I find it a bit strange that the power supply would give out I suppose it is possible that it was under-performing thereby causing the strange noises by not giving enough power to components to run properly and perhaps my tinkering is what finally caused it to die altogether but that seems unlikely I am wondering if perhaps there may be something in the hardware that I overlooked I am certain everything was plugged back in correctly but it just seems like too much of a coincidence It s not that big of a deal as a new power supply is cheap or she may even take this as a sign to upgrade to a new er system but I d still like to know what may have caused it I don t have the specifics of her system other than it has a Pentium II Any hints or tips would be greatly appreciated Thank you nbsp
