    Default 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!!

    What's your power supply? Some unbranded 250W Chinese one?

    I actually think that it is an unbreanded chinese power supply. Damn, I didn't think that it would make these kind of problems. Double damn, cause that's the one part I'm not sure of how to change out. Oh well.

    Any good places where I could get a guide? I have lost my motherboard manual, so this may be a problem. Thank you for the help.

    it probably isn't your power supply. you said that you turned it off and waited right?? well it most likely is because of the computer's ability to cool down your computer. your computer's fan might be filled up with dust so it causes your computer to overheat. the best thing you can do is go to a computer store or something and buy compact air. and blow out all the dust compiled on your computer's fan

    I screwed up. I ment for my motherboard to power down. Whenever the power is cut from my mobo, it makes a sound. It was a mess up on my part, but my computer is super dusty. I am going to edit my post.

    if it not your power supply, it might have been bad memory, bad hard drive.
    make sure you back up your data before it just crash.

    Check your PSU if you have a heavy system. If not, check if your hardware are inserted or mounted properly. And finally, try out each one of them, by swapping out those that can be swapped out. Could be damaged RAM or a motherboard. Also check with your RAM latency settings.
