OMFG HELP!

Postby cheese » Mon Aug 29, 2005 5:02 pm

This is soooo freaking annoying. My stupid computer keeps on restarting by itself. I am pretty sure it has something to do with the video card because that is screwing up too.

I have a ATI Radeon 9600xt

3400 64 bit processer
512 ram



Someone please help. I have also ran Spybot, Norton Anti Virus, and Ad-Aware. With no help

Perhaps the nasty Zoto worm that was circulating around a week or so ago?

Well I was building my pc and I didn't put the heatsink on properly. My mobo has an automatic shut off, which killed the power after being on for maybe a minute or so. Once it hits a certain temperature it will kill the power, so you don't fry the cpu. Were you moving the tower at all? Possibly enough to wiggle something loose. :dunno:

Wasn't there a virus that came out about a year or so ago that would constantly shut your machine down?

No, this is something that hit a lot of people about a year ago. I specifically remember -BoS-Inhaber helping a fellow clan member remove this beast from their machine.

Besides, I think the Zoto worm targets Windows 2000 and Dairy-Product has XP.

:P

While the worm affects primarily Windows 2000, it also can affect some early versions of <span style='font-size:22pt;line-height:100%'><span style='color:red'>Microsoft XP</span></span>, said Johannes Ullrich, chief technology officer of the Sans Institute, a network security firm based in Jacksonville, Florida.

Gaurentee its something with the cpu inside. I need to use a 4 foot clamp to hold down my cpu and I even overheat sometimes, just get a 4 foot clamp and squeeze till you can't no more. Worked for me even though it looks ghetto as shit
