Hi guys, I am new here so please tell me if i do anything against the ntfs.org culture eh? :p

anyway, i need some tips from you guys. I just upgraded my pc bu replacing the mobo, cpu n ram, but now it tends to just reboot on its own, or sometimes boot up by itself. i went into bios and turned off all "boot on blah blah blah" configurations, and still testing to see if it resolves the issue... anyone got any ideas? I flashed the BIOS to the latest one already.. :(

it boots up by itself?? youmean when its turned off.. it will just boot up out of the blue?? No user interaction??
I would say you dont have thing hooked up right.
The rebooting by itself is usually because of heat related issues. FANS FANS FANS get the air circulating... but the random start ups is something different.

ture but wol is a unique hookup and config. one would know for sure if they configured that and its easy enough to disable.
seem weird to me when a system cold boots with no user interaction.

must be ghosts in the machine :D

haha... it was 4am last night when i booted the thing down and went to bed... then i suddenly heard a loud whirring sound and... well, the LEDs lit up the room :p

i turned off WOL and anything that could possibly cause a remote boot or watever, hopefully tonight everything would be fine :p but anyone has any ideas about the reboot besides heat?

i keep a temperature monitor running all the time and my CPU temp averages out at 54, system at about 32... if it helps, HD is around 35... i haf the fans n circulation going but it still happens? :S

read around some editorials that AMD thermal sensing diodes in the CPU is rather inaccurate... could that be the reason? thanks for the fast replies guys :D

if things are just plain rebooting, you might be overloading your powersupply, that size of an upgrade, it is probable. some times, the programs you may be automatically running, will reboot to do their jobs, norton did that to me. as far as an automatic cold boot that is usually something not hooked up correctly.... make sure you have "boot after power loss" (something along that line) disabled in your bios, if it is a power supply fault, it loosing and gaining power, even when off, would cause your computer to just turn on....

oh.. okay... the cold boot problem has been fixed... looked like the "boot on IRQ activity" option was the one giving the problem :p thanks toretto, but isn't a 400W PSU powerful enough? :confused:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
