My computer restarted for no reason at all
Well here is a weird problem. I was playing Sacred, with Winamp playing in the background, and then, out of the blue, BAM! My computer restarted. There wasn't really anything that I did to trigger it, but it did it anyway.
After it did, while it was booting up, after the Window's loading screen went away, it turned off. Everytime I tried to boot up, after the whole windows loading screen went off and it would have asked me to login, it did the same.
After a couple times, I flipped the power supply's switch off in the back, waited for the power to go off, flipped the switch again, turned the computer on again, and the problem stopped.
I was wondering what the hell is going on to have something like that happen. I also have a weird problem happening that makes no sense, but may have a connection to that. If I click my mouse while my computer is off, then my computer starts. It doesn't work if I don't turn off my computer correctly, and it doesn't matter what type of mouse I use.
I have Windows 2000 Proffesional Edition, Athlon 3000+, 512 DDR PC3200, GeForce 5200, Onboard Sound, KT400 Black Edition (Not exactly sure about this one, I have to check), and that is about it.
Any help on this one would be much appreciated. I haven't ever heard of anyone ever having problems like this, so it seems that everyone's work is cut out for them. Thank You!!
