    Default PC reboots sometimes (in BIOS)

    Hello everyone
    <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
    I’m not a native english speaker, so forgive my bad english.
    <o:p></o:p>
    I have the following, small problem. Once in a while, my computer reboots. This happens when I start the computer up, and right after I see ‘Memory testing OK’ the screen goes black and the PC reboots (ventilators start to spin 100 % etc). There are never problems after the reboot, it goes to Windows as it should.
    <o:p></o:p>
    This happens only once in a while (about 1 time a week) and never happens when I manually reboot in Windows or wake the pc from standby.
    <o:p></o:p>
    My friend who has the exact same configuration( we bought our PC’s together and I and another friend assebled them) never had this problem dicribed above. However, there are two differences:
    * I have a MAXTOR external harddrive and he does not. I have not tried disconnecting this HD since I can hear it ‘spin up’ when the PC starts, even when it has the ‘reboot’-problem … .
    * Also, I have a newer version of the motherboard’s BIOS … .
    <o:p></o:p>
    The good news is that the PC works like a dream ... . I have tested with memtest86 for 10 hours, stressed my video card for a few hours, run Prime95 and intelburntest for a few hours, scanned the HD’s, … . Every test is OK, temperatures are just fine etc. I also did a CMOS and loaded optimized and optimal defaults in the BIOS.
    All my components have guarantee. The biggest problem is that I cannot reproduce the problem, if I took the PC to a PC shop chances are that the problem will not occur when they take a look at it … . I also would not like it to send a component for guarantee, because I have had a bad experience with this and apart from this problem the PC works just fine.
    My questions:
    * what could be the problem and
    * the most important question, should I worry about it?
    Many thanks for your answers!

    Hello,

    I've had this exact problem you describe, almost same configuration except I've got an EX58-DS4.... i7 920 too.

    I'm almost 100% sure its something with the USB devices you have plugged in to your computer, to me it happens once every 2 weeks or so, but I've noticed that when it happens its because I either moved a usb device or unplugged it, I also have an external USB hitachi drive which I think it's the culprit, however I can't unplug it since its used constantly for backup.

    I don't think there's anything to worry about, as long as the system runs fine.

    Have a look at this thread I made about this issue a while back:

    Cheers

    Thanks ! I'll sure look into that thread. I think I'll also just stop worrying about it, evrything else runs fine so I think it won't be such a big deal.
