the case of the rebooting pc
i own an older homemade desktop pc. its a amd athlon 550 with 512 ram, 300 watt power source, cd-rw/dvd, 200 gigs yada yada yada....
i know its not the fastest thing, but its all i can afford right now. my laptop is what im ussing right now, the desktop is just for music and movies.
the problem is that i have a hardware issue, and i cant figure it out. i can be on the comptuer, or not be on it, but it restarts at free will. the restarting isnt even the bad part, when it reboots, windows wont load and that all the drives wont start.
i unplug the power cord for 10 secs, boot it up, and 90% of hte time it works. am i looking at a new motherboard or waht? once its booted, everything works fine, but sometimes it says that "windows recovered from a serious hardware issue"
i want to build a new one, but money is the issue right now
