    computer keeps reseting! when i have 2 or more programs running and i went to the ie and typed in a website and hit enter! and it restarted!and once it just restarted becuz i clicked on sumthin.It is very annoying!!


    i think the problem is my power fan i think its not providing enough power. DO u need a special power fan for a pentium 4 or any power fan will do?

    ANyways i have a P4 1.9 256sdram pc133

    If you have a old computer then it is possible that it may be overheating due a bad fan or a big accumulation of dust.

    Houseclean, maybe.

    Sounds like you threw a P4 in an old case with a sub-par PS.

    Turn off the 'Automatically restart' feature.

    Start>Control pannel>Switch to classic view>System>Advanced tab>Startup and Recovery>settings>remove the checkmark from [ ] Automatically restart and click ok.

    Now your computer will not restart when you have an error. You will then see the error message and the you can diagnose what's the cause of the error.

    It still does the restart after that.
    My friend josh had a burned Geforce FX 5400 128mb that started restarting everytime he played 3d games.

    Yeah, if his computer is still restarting after doing this, then it is a power problem, not an Error problem.
