ok well here is my problem. ok first of all i got a 200watt psu, ok and i got the following drives running on the system..
CD-RW
CD-Rom
20gb harddrive
Floppy drive
ok when i had those hooked up everything was fine no problems

then i added another 4.3gb harddrive, system ran fine for about 20 minutes then just restarted.
i also have 3 fans in the system currently, the cpu fan, psu fan, and another fan.. basicly i am wondering did it restart cuz there wasnt enough power to run all that on 200watts? is that why?

the 4.3gb is out now so i am going to see if it still restarts.. please post your thoughts

Right click my computer\properties\advanced\startup & recovery\settings. In there untick automatic restart. Instead of rebooting you will get an error message which you can post here.

ok, i unplugged one of the fans, and i just put another psu on top of my system and hooked the fan to that, i got the 4.3gig still in too, its been about 25 mins and no problems so far, i copied stuff back and forth to the drive and all seems well so far. hopefully it will last.

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
