Default Computer Random Reboot / Errors PLEASE HELP

I built my computer in 2001, and here are the specs fully
assembled, when problems started:

Epox EP-8KHA+ Motherboard (VIA KT266A chipset)
AMD Athlon 1800+ (1.53GHz)
2 Micron 256MB PC2100 DDR SDRAM
2 Maxtor 6L040J2 40GB 7200rpm ATA-133 drives
Enermax 350w PSU
Silicon Image ATA-133 PCI RAID adapter (Sil0680 chipset)
Creative Labs Audigy MP3+ PCI card w/ IEEE1394
Inno3D GeForce2 MX 400 4x AGP video card
3Com 10/100 PCI NIC
Toshiba SD-M1502 DVD drive
Brand name CD-RW drive (I forget the brand)
Agere Systems PCI soft modem
Full, legal version of WinXP Pro SP1

I haven't changed my computer's configuration since it
was built, and everything has been working fine

until the past few weeks. My computer started to randomly
reboot at any given time, no matter what

application I was using, even when I wasn't using the PC
and it was idle. It would immediately go to a

blue screen that would flash on the screen for a few
seconds before rebooting. Occasionally there was an

error at Windows startup as well that said the computer
recovered from a serious error and asked me to

report it to MS - I did, and every time it would tell me
a device driver caused the problem but wouldnt

tell me which. A few times, it said it was a graphics
device driver that caused it. Knowing this, I made

sure I had the most up-to-date graphics adapter drivers -
I did. I then tried older drivers, and the PC

was still rebooting. Suspecting a video hardware failure,
I removed my card and tried a different video

card - no help, the PC still rebooted and gave me errors.

I figured my Windows install was corrupt, so I
reformatted my PC and reinstalled WindowsXP - didn't

help. In fact, it even gave me a blue screen and rebooted
during Windows setup (after I had formatted

the drive).

I used the Microsoft-provided memory diagnostics check,
and the memory passed all tests without a hitch.

Next I decided to remove all components in my PC except
the essentials. I took out everyting except the

video card, CD drive, and one hard drive. I disabled the
RAID 0 and took out the RAID card so I was down

to one Maxtor 40GB hard drive hooked directly to the
motherboard IDE. I took out the sound card, network

card, and modem. I reformatted this drive and reinstalled
Windows on it, but the Pc still had the same

problems. I also cleaned the inside of the PC with a
compressed gas duster and made sure the fans were

all clean.

Now I was suspecting either a Power Supply failure or
motherboard/processor failure. My motherboard was

setup to sound an alarm or turn off the system if the CPU
was too hot or the fans weren't working.

However, this never happened. I opted to try the least
expensive fix for the situation. I replaced my

power supply with a brand new Antec 350w SmartPower.
Didn't help. However, during replacing the PSU and

cleaning out the inside of the PC, I noticed that the
transistors on the motherboard (I dont know what

they're called actually - perhaps capacitators? ...those
silver pencil-eraser-sized barrels wrapped in

sheathing), particularly the ones around the processor
had a rust-colored chemical buildup of some kind

on the top of them. I gently scraped as much of it off
them as I could.

I am at a loss for what to do next. Is it time to go
ahead and buy a new motherboard/processor, or are

there other things I didn't check that I should have.
PLEASE HELP ME!!!! Any help would be greatly

appreciated.

Thanks,

Joe Przedwiecki

Default Computer Random Reboot / Errors PLEASE HELP

Memory problems are not always detectable on a single run, sometimes a bad
spot will work and another time it will not , so run the memory test at
least a couple of times. The barrels you speak of are indeed capacitors and
should not have brown goo on top, it sounds like they have been overloaded
and are broken now (they contain a oily fluid, that's prolly what the rusty
goo is). That's all I can think of now, I'd go for a motherboard replacement
as this seems most likely to be the cause, with the busted caps and all.

Kees Spierings

Default Computer Random Reboot / Errors PLEASE HELP

Thanks, I figured that was what I was going to have to end up doing. Memory
tests still say things are okay.

I appreciate it,

Joe Przedwiecki

Memory problems are not always detectable on a single run, sometimes a bad
spot will work and another time it will not , so run the memory test at
least a couple of times. The barrels you speak of are indeed capacitors

and
should not have brown goo on top, it sounds like they have been overloaded
and are broken now (they contain a oily fluid, that's prolly what the

rusty
goo is). That's all I can think of now, I'd go for a motherboard

replacement
as this seems most likely to be the cause, with the busted caps and all.

I built my computer in 2001, and here are the specs fully
assembled, when problems started:

Epox EP-8KHA+ Motherboard (VIA KT266A chipset)
AMD Athlon 1800+ (1.53GHz)
2 Micron 256MB PC2100 DDR SDRAM
2 Maxtor 6L040J2 40GB 7200rpm ATA-133 drives
Enermax 350w PSU
Silicon Image ATA-133 PCI RAID adapter (Sil0680 chipset)
Creative Labs Audigy MP3+ PCI card w/ IEEE1394
Inno3D GeForce2 MX 400 4x AGP video card
3Com 10/100 PCI NIC
Toshiba SD-M1502 DVD drive
Brand name CD-RW drive (I forget the brand)
Agere Systems PCI soft modem
Full, legal version of WinXP Pro SP1

I haven't changed my computer's configuration since it
was built, and everything has been working fine

until the past few weeks. My computer started to randomly
reboot at any given time, no matter what

application I was using, even when I wasn't using the PC
and it was idle. It would immediately go to a

blue screen that would flash on the screen for a few
seconds before rebooting. Occasionally there was an

error at Windows startup as well that said the computer
recovered from a serious error and asked me to

report it to MS - I did, and every time it would tell me
a device driver caused the problem but wouldnt

tell me which. A few times, it said it was a graphics
device driver that caused it. Knowing this, I made

sure I had the most up-to-date graphics adapter drivers -
I did. I then tried older drivers, and the PC

was still rebooting. Suspecting a video hardware failure,
I removed my card and tried a different video

card - no help, the PC still rebooted and gave me errors.

I figured my Windows install was corrupt, so I
reformatted my PC and reinstalled WindowsXP - didn't

help. In fact, it even gave me a blue screen and rebooted
during Windows setup (after I had formatted

the drive).

I used the Microsoft-provided memory diagnostics check,
and the memory passed all tests without a hitch.

Next I decided to remove all components in my PC except
the essentials. I took out everyting except the

video card, CD drive, and one hard drive. I disabled the
RAID 0 and took out the RAID card so I was down

to one Maxtor 40GB hard drive hooked directly to the
motherboard IDE. I took out the sound card, network

card, and modem. I reformatted this drive and reinstalled
Windows on it, but the Pc still had the same

problems. I also cleaned the inside of the PC with a
compressed gas duster and made sure the fans were

all clean.

Now I was suspecting either a Power Supply failure or
motherboard/processor failure. My motherboard was

setup to sound an alarm or turn off the system if the CPU
was too hot or the fans weren't working.

However, this never happened. I opted to try the least
expensive fix for the situation. I replaced my

power supply with a brand new Antec 350w SmartPower.
Didn't help. However, during replacing the PSU and

cleaning out the inside of the PC, I noticed that the
transistors on the motherboard (I dont know what

they're called actually - perhaps capacitators? ...those
silver pencil-eraser-sized barrels wrapped in

sheathing), particularly the ones around the processor
had a rust-colored chemical buildup of some kind

on the top of them. I gently scraped as much of it off
them as I could.

I am at a loss for what to do next. Is it time to go
ahead and buy a new motherboard/processor, or are

there other things I didn't check that I should have.
PLEASE HELP ME!!!! Any help would be greatly

appreciated.

Thanks,

Joe Przedwiecki



PS

Included are a few copies of error logs/information logs
I got from the event viewer. Don't know if this

would be of any help...

Default Computer Random Reboot / Errors PLEASE HELP

Hi, Joe

This also happens to me...it automatically restarts randomly...I upgraded my
system to P4 3GHz HT 1G RAM and then this thing happens. Before (when my
system is P4 2.5G 512 RAM), i dont have any problems. With have alsmost same
error messages received, Joe...

im still figuring out if it could be a conflict between driver and
hardware... im suspecting it could be my video card or the motehrboard
itself...will uupdate you if anything went ok...

Memory problems are not always detectable on a single run, sometimes a bad
spot will work and another time it will not , so run the memory test at
least a couple of times. The barrels you speak of are indeed capacitors

and
should not have brown goo on top, it sounds like they have been overloaded
and are broken now (they contain a oily fluid, that's prolly what the

rusty
goo is). That's all I can think of now, I'd go for a motherboard

replacement
as this seems most likely to be the cause, with the busted caps and all.

I built my computer in 2001, and here are the specs fully
assembled, when problems started:

Epox EP-8KHA+ Motherboard (VIA KT266A chipset)
AMD Athlon 1800+ (1.53GHz)
2 Micron 256MB PC2100 DDR SDRAM
2 Maxtor 6L040J2 40GB 7200rpm ATA-133 drives
Enermax 350w PSU
Silicon Image ATA-133 PCI RAID adapter (Sil0680 chipset)
Creative Labs Audigy MP3+ PCI card w/ IEEE1394
Inno3D GeForce2 MX 400 4x AGP video card
3Com 10/100 PCI NIC
Toshiba SD-M1502 DVD drive
Brand name CD-RW drive (I forget the brand)
Agere Systems PCI soft modem
Full, legal version of WinXP Pro SP1

I haven't changed my computer's configuration since it
was built, and everything has been working fine

until the past few weeks. My computer started to randomly
reboot at any given time, no matter what

application I was using, even when I wasn't using the PC
and it was idle. It would immediately go to a

blue screen that would flash on the screen for a few
seconds before rebooting. Occasionally there was an

error at Windows startup as well that said the computer
recovered from a serious error and asked me to

report it to MS - I did, and every time it would tell me
a device driver caused the problem but wouldnt

tell me which. A few times, it said it was a graphics
device driver that caused it. Knowing this, I made

sure I had the most up-to-date graphics adapter drivers -
I did. I then tried older drivers, and the PC

was still rebooting. Suspecting a video hardware failure,
I removed my card and tried a different video

card - no help, the PC still rebooted and gave me errors.

I figured my Windows install was corrupt, so I
reformatted my PC and reinstalled WindowsXP - didn't

help. In fact, it even gave me a blue screen and rebooted
during Windows setup (after I had formatted

the drive).

I used the Microsoft-provided memory diagnostics check,
and the memory passed all tests without a hitch.

Next I decided to remove all components in my PC except
the essentials. I took out everyting except the

video card, CD drive, and one hard drive. I disabled the
RAID 0 and took out the RAID card so I was down

to one Maxtor 40GB hard drive hooked directly to the
motherboard IDE. I took out the sound card, network

card, and modem. I reformatted this drive and reinstalled
Windows on it, but the Pc still had the same

problems. I also cleaned the inside of the PC with a
compressed gas duster and made sure the fans were

all clean.

Now I was suspecting either a Power Supply failure or
motherboard/processor failure. My motherboard was

setup to sound an alarm or turn off the system if the CPU
was too hot or the fans weren't working.

However, this never happened. I opted to try the least
expensive fix for the situation. I replaced my

power supply with a brand new Antec 350w SmartPower.
Didn't help. However, during replacing the PSU and

cleaning out the inside of the PC, I noticed that the
transistors on the motherboard (I dont know what

they're called actually - perhaps capacitators? ...those
silver pencil-eraser-sized barrels wrapped in

sheathing), particularly the ones around the processor
had a rust-colored chemical buildup of some kind

on the top of them. I gently scraped as much of it off
them as I could.

I am at a loss for what to do next. Is it time to go
ahead and buy a new motherboard/processor, or are

there other things I didn't check that I should have.
PLEASE HELP ME!!!! Any help would be greatly

appreciated.

Thanks,

Joe Przedwiecki

Default Computer Random Reboot / Errors PLEASE HELP

oHi, I had the same problem with my machine (Sony Vaio p4, i gig RAM,
etc...).
It ended up being a memory problem. If you have whats called Dual Channel
memory banks on your pc , than you need to have parralell memory. Ex. for
512mb, you would need 1x 256mb chip installed in bank 0 (the 1st slot), and
1x 256mb chip installed in bank 2 (the 3rd slot). That was the factory
setting that I had on my computer. When I upgraded to 1 gb of RAM, I didn't
know about this dual channel memory issue. I had the 2x 256mb chips
installed (as mentioned above), and 1x 512mb chip installed in bank 1 (the
2nd slot, the one between the 2x 256mb chips that were alredy in there).
What I found out needed to be done was instead of having 1x 512mb chip
installed, I need another corresponding pair of 2x 256mb chips to be
installed in banks 1 (the 2nd slot) and in back 3 (the last slot). Sinse I
have swapped the RAM I have had no problems at all. Now, every PC is
different, what worked for me may not neccacarily work for you, but our
stories sound quite similar so maybe this info will help you out.....GOOD
LUCK!!!!!
