    Default Weird computer problem

    I just bought a brand new MSI 865PE NEO-2 Platinum edition and a intel p4 3ghz 800mhzfsb 1mb of cache

    The thing is... once in a while my pc just keeps rebooting for no reason, and when i play games it sometimes takes like 5 minutes and it reboots. I tried removing the cover of my comp and put an extra fan and my CPU is at 50 degrees celcius when i play games, with the extra fan...

    The weird thing is, I get some kind of blue screen of the death when it happens... could this be an overheating problem? anyone know

    If you are getting a BSOD, then you should have some sort of error written on it. Write that down and let us know what it says and we can help a bit more. While 50C is hotter than I like my systems to run, it should not be high enough to cause forced reboots unless you have some sort of temperature shutdown device (or system BIOS) set to that level.

    the thing is, i really can't know what the message says because first i can't predict when the crash will happen and second, when it does reboot, the BOTD only appens for like 0.1 seconds and i can't pause it so i can't really know the message

    the only think I THINK i read was please contact your vendor but i ain't sure

    and when im not playing games, with the case open the cpu is 35 degrees and case at 34

    Strange, i used to have the same problem, a blue screen would appear like 1 nanosecond and then the computer reboots, generally it happened while i was playing games, i never really discovered what triggered the problem, but i can assure you it's not realted with temperature and/or processor since i have now a new motherboard that uses the same processor and it runs 10 degress hotter than before and that problem hasn't happened again.

    When you changed the mainboard did you do a fresh install of Windows or did you just use the old installation?

    I have almost the same board and have had system restarts in the past playing games but I usually figure them out sooner or later. Things I suggest to try individually to see if it helps.
    .
    (1). Update the bios and drivers to your mainboard and hardware. Make sure all bios settings are set correctly for your hardware. Don't overclock until you find the problem!
    (2). Try turning your sound accelleration off in directx using the dxdiag tool. This one solved my most recent system restarts while playing certain games.
    (3). Is you PSU (Power Supply unit) up to snuff? (Stable or not?)
    (4). Test your system Ram.
    (5). Reformat harddrive.

    Strange i got a similar error. It has never done this while handling simple tasks such as media player, word, web surfing, and chatting, but when i start to play games the graphics are great but then it rooboots in about 5 minutes. When this happens I start to smell a strange aroma. It smells like metal or something. I think i may need a new psu? Any suggestions?
