    Default New computer keeps restarting

    Ok, so I have a custom made computer. Stupid thing is, it keeps restarting whenever I play Scions of Fate and every now and then on Maplestory. It doesn't come up with anything like the BSOD. I can kind of hear my computer just turning off and then turning back on and I think it's irritating. I'm really starting to get annoyed by this. Is there anyway to fix this?

    My computer specks are:

    AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3200+
    2.01 GHz Performance Rated at 3.20 GHz
    Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 (Build 2600)
    NVIDIA GeForce 6100 (GeForce 6100)
    -256.0 MB
    -3D Acceleration
    -HW Rasterization
    -HW Transform & Lighting
    Direct X 9.0c
    Realtek AC'97 Audio
    113.4 GB (119 without calculating anything on it) and 113 GB
    LITE-ON DVDRW LH-20A1H
    300W powersupply

    This is the error code that I get when it comes up with that send or don't send thing:

    BCCode : 9c BCP1 : 00000004 BCP2 : 80545FF0 BCP3 : B2000000
    BCP4 : 00070F0F OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 2_0 Product : 768_1


    Can someone help me with this problem please? Is it because I don't have enough RAM? Or could it be that I spent money on a cheap power supply?

    That powersupply might not be enough to power that rig, however you'd have to calculate it up.

    That error typicaly means CPU, Mobo, or ram though... meaning one is faulty, or not right.

    For it to do that, I'd guess the CPU or ram is fucking up due to heating issues. Recheck your fans and make sure they are positioned correctly. You want air to flow through the computer. IE, front to back or side to back... the fans shouldn't all be facing inward. Oh... you know your GPU could be overheating too.

    Also what you should do is make sure you have the latest BIOS for your motherboard. Look up it's modelnumber and then check the manufacture's site for an update.

    Get the latest drivers for that nVidia card as well.

    Umm... yeah, try all that for now. If your still concerned about heat, pop the side of the case off. It creates a risk of dust shorting something out, but I've never seen that happen before... just be aware that it can happen and do so at your own risk.

    300W should be enough. The power consumption of AMDs are nowhere as close as to a Netburst Intel. Moreover, he doesn't even have a video card.
    However, check your rails for stability, especially the 12V one.

    Yeah, memtest86 is required here.

    Overheating is a possibility. He doesn't even have an overheatable GPU.

    Very unlikely.

    Usually if it were the fault of the NVIDIA drivers, the BSOD would show nv4disp.dll errors.

    Ah damn it... I forgot that 6100 is the integrated one. XD
    That shoots half my post right to hell. Heehee. ^^

    Your right about the video card, Jyuu, and the BIOS is in relation to boards that don't handle the video cards well, so those are both out (although having latest BIOS is nice). I should just go to bed, but I ran across this so throwing it out there. XD

    Another thing I ran across looking up that error code tonight is that sometimes that's a pagefile fault too. It's another one of those rare, quirks.
    Get the program Page Defrag (Mike R's program from Sysinternals, now owned by microsoft... as he is that good) and run it. This should fix any possible pagefile errors.

    After memtest, scandisk should probably be run too. If your still drawing a blank, try a virus test.

    Oh, quick question Jyuu. I think I've run memtest86 once off a Fedora disk. I don't remember it taking that long. When looking this error up though, I saw someone suggest running memtest for 24 hours straight! Is that right...? XD

    Oh bull! Just run five sets of extended tests.

    And you are more likely to CAUSE errors than DETECT them when you stress your CPU and RAM for that long.

    I found out that my computer needs 350W to power, is that likely the issue?
