    Default Random Reboots

    Hey, I am having a problem with random crashes rescently.

    I've tried troubleshooting this but nothing is working.


    I mostly happens when I have Winamp playing music and my Bit Torrent client open (Azureus) and running MSN Messenger along with web browsing with Firefox, it's happened most often just when I am reading websites, I am not totally sure but I think it might be my CPU getting too much wear on it, AMD Athlon XP 1800+ (Running 1.66ghz)

    I clocked it back to the normal speed a few days ago and I am still getting this problem, could my CPU be dying on me?

    What kind of temperatures are you getting and what PSU do you have (wattage and brand)?

    Overclocked I am running at about 40 degrees idle and probably around 50 MAX, if that on load.

    ****ty PSU: Turbolink LC-A350ATX (With a green P4 sticker on it haha)


    Might I add: This has never happened while playing a game, only when I am in windows doing stuff, and only when I am using a peripheral, such as a mouse, It does NOT reboot overnight.

    So....?

    Computer hasn't rebooted in a while, I expect it to within the hour.

    It's quite possible (though I don't why it would randomly happen) that your IRQs are screwed up, which can cause instability like this (though it more commonly just makes one of the devices cease to function properly). This looks sufficient enough to help you determine if you have an IRQ conflict. It could also be that a device is causing this for some other reason. If it only happens when using your network card, that could be it, for example.

    The PSU could certainly be the cause, problems with gaming or not. A 350W is more than enough for the system, but if it's really crappy then it could still fail on you. You can also try out a different PSU.

    Of course, you can try running it without the overclock. That's a pretty common cause of instability.

    Nope, No conflicts in IRQs, I did up my CPU Core voltage a bit, and it hasn't rebooted since, hopefully that was the problem.
