Back as it was for no reason

Question: Back as it was for no reason

Okay, I have this gateway and it was running fine until I turned it on and when i logged in on the login screen it took a some while before getting to the desktop and everything was back to it's factory settings as it was from day 1. My favorites in internet explorer are all gone, my files in my documents are gone as well but theyre all sent to the C: drive so their not really gone along with my desktop files. idk wut happen? it was working just fine. the computer technician who was fixing another computer told me it was probably hacked but i doubt it because prior to that i did not turn off the computer properly just off the switch. it seems that it doesnt load the settings i left that's why it takes a long time to startup when i log in. and everytime i turn the computer on a new "TEMP" folder adds on. and my "Owner" folder which should be the one that loads does not.

Preferred Solution: Back as it was for no reason

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Back as it was for no reason

did you try system restore out of your accessories?

(I'm not sure if this belongs in maintenance or in bugs. Please tell me if you think I should move it.)
I have a year-old ASUS F555LA-AS51 Core i5 15.6-Inch Laptop. It's been running pretty smoothly, but within the last month, it's begun to randomly go back to the homescreen with all the apps. This doesn't seem to be on a fixed schedule--there's always a gap of at least 40 minutes, but sometimes it's longer. It doesn't matter what I have running. Sometimes I only have Word open, and sometimes I'll have Netflix or a videogame running and it still happens. Luckily, the apps or windows don't close; they just minimize for a second. It doesn't take any time to get back to what I was doing, but it is a nuisance. I have tried turning it off and on again, running antimalware programs, manually debugging, and changing the screen saver settings. I'm not sure what I can try to get this to stop happening.
If you have any ideas how to stop this glitch from happening, please let me know! Thanks!

Good evening,

I own an ACER Extensa 5620
2 GB of RAM

OP Is Windows 7 Home Premium
x64 bit
the original installed OS on the system was Vista
full retail version?

I purchased this laptop from EBAY. It was cheap and I am starting to figure out why. It was working fine for a while, minus the CD Rom not working. All of a sudden a BSOD keeps on interupting me when I am working on line, or on word, when ever it feels like. I brought the laptop to a PC repair place and they installed a new version of windows 7 on my laptop. They said that should fix the problem with the screen. However this did not work. He did say to bring it back and he would look at it again, I am trying to fix the problem myself because I can not leave my laptop for more than a few days unless it is necessary. Attached is the reports that Sevenforum asked my to do. Please help with this problem.

Answer:BSOD for no Reason. Blue Screen Viewer says ntoskrln.exe is reason

I need some help on how to how to backup your personal folder( the folder in windows which has sub folders of your videos, documents, music, downloads etc) multiple times without having to a complete backup each time. I just want to backup the new files that I have been added.

I used Cobian Backup 10 for my backup. On my very first backup, I choose the "full" backup type. (I have no idea why I needed to choose the "full" backup type since I only backed up my personal folder and not the entire (C hard drive). I then chose my seagate external hard drive as the destination source.

The first folder(the one which is scribbled in black for privacy reasons) is the backed up folder in the external hard drive. Inside the folder has all the sub folders (videos, music, documents etc).


Flash forward four months later and I have now created new files (documents, downloaded music and videos etc) during that time. I now want to backup my personal folder again, but I do not want to do a complete backup of the folder, just the new files and folders since it it will be very time consuming to do a complete backup. So I used the "incremental" back up type for the nuew added files. However, when I back up my personal folder using incremental, it creates a folder, and in that folder has the newly added files.( I used the blacked out folder as the destination for the incremental back up)

Which OS version are you using of Windows. It should be a matter of going to control penal sound properties and you should see a drop down to specify the onboard audio vs the video cards HDMI HD Audio. Once you set this preference to have audio from the built in sound card you should be all set.

Use the feedback app to report this please :) btw you can reset your phone, but restoring from a backup will cause problems (apps not installing correctly). So soft reset is a go and hard reset without restoring is also okay as long as you don't restore

Now I know there is a tutorial - well I think there is - where you can send excess data to a large drive to save space on the C: drive as mine is rapidly filling (256GB SSD) and I don't want to end up with a recent situation with my old laptop where the dive became full and I couldn't do a thing with it.

I do have a lot of music on the C: drive which if I could I would store on the large drive and be able to play with WMP when I want. The same goes if I could store programs liken Macrium on the large drive and use on the occasions I want to. I am planning to fir 500gb SSD but funds are a bit stretched right now.

Answer:Getting data back form back up internal drive

Just make a MUSIC folder on the other drive and move all your music files there. Then right click on that MUSIC folder and INCLUDE it into the music library. Call the folder "Music 2" or something to differentiate it from the other music folders. And the Music folder on the SSD you just leave empty.

There is another method moving the folder via the location tab in Properties. I do not recommend that method. It can lead to problems. The above method is safer.

And leave the programs on the SSD. Those are small.

Mine on the other drive is called Whs Music

Not much details to help here. But you can try soft-reset. If that doesn't work, leave it for a while half an hour or so and then plug in the charger. Let's see if it boots. In case your phone has removable battery, remove it for while and try powering on.

I have XP and use IE8 and regularly clear all temporary files/cookies/cache.

When browsing the internet, if I want to use the back feature I have to hit the back button multiple times. Sometimes it works like it should, but other times I have to press the back button two or three times to get it actually do what it is supposed to do. This has been going on for months and it can be really annoying. This is very frustrating for me because I cannot figure it out on my own..

I have reset IE, deleted all unnecessary junk files, I even went as far as reformatting and starting from scratch and nothing seems to work.

Does anyone know what it going on here?

This is most annoying. I use FireFox on the same machine and I do not have this problem there. I use a laptop with Win2K and IE 6 and it does not have that problem either. Basically they do not retain the doubleclick frames in the history. How can I fix this on the XP machine. I compared all the internet advanced options with the laptop and they are identical.

I wish to thank you for the links to assist me in different modules and help links. I have learnt a lot in the past few weeks.

I know where not to go and I guess some people wish to tell me where to go.

I have in the meantime noted that Norton back Up was not working - I just assumed that it was backing up all my data.

I then had a session as the last back up was encrypted. The remote assistance tech - went through and troubleshooted. Looked at the location of my backup and said that they had a bug in the previous version and I would have to upgrade software and therefore loose my backup.

So I agreed to let him delete the back up as I wished to have a clean operating system.

I am sorry for the vague posts or any tired messages of frustration.

This will be one of my last posts and I will just look at tutorials.

Thanks for all the kind offers - this is the best forum I have been involved in



As you all know it is difficult to diagnose without knowing the mindset of the person.

I have thousand of hours of work that I am afraid to loose.

I recently followed a forum and lost all my data from my mobile - that hurt. Hence my reluctance.

All the best forum.

Hello,
 
I was googling how to back up an entire PC,
and I found that in Windows XP, which i have, that there's a back up utility in accesories/system tools
 
 
I read that if you do a system back up, you can only restore the entire system.
 
I was wondering if you could pick from what you want to restore ?
 
 
 
 
Thanks in advance

Answer:Back up entire PC, format PC, then pick from what i want to put back in ?

If the idea is to create an image for restoring due to hdd failure or system file corruption,
then I would think you would want to use a more reliable backup then that. Several free
programs for doing that.
 
I would think that it would be much simpler to remove any unwanted files, programs, etc. before
doing the backup/ image creation.
 
You can read more about the XP backup utility and how to use it if you choose that route.

I recently got a virus I could not clean, had to reformat and reinstall from sratch. I thought I had everything I needed when I decided to format, but of course in hind sight I realize I was not really as set as I thought. I had a portable back up drive, but somehow it looks corupt, I'm hoping I can get my data off it.
My main items I copied to my back up drive I didnt want to loose were my pictures and music. I thought I had all my software coverded , but had misplaced a few CD's with copies after all. Had to do some work to get them back.

So how do you all back up you data, I am looking for a better plan. I usually have copies of all software on CD's, and make copies of my pictures onto CD's when I start to get a lot on my hard drive.
I am thinking I will put a second HD in my computer for back up. But then if I get a virus or bug in my main drive, it can still corupt my back up drive right?

I had Acronis true image on my PC once but was not crazy about how it worked. I guess thats an option as I still have the program, but you have to install after format, I dont really want to go through all that again.

Answer:I need a new back plan, how do you all back up your hard drives??

I use Second Copy 8 and Norton Ghost 14 (similiar to Acronis TI).

The usefulness of the back shortcut click on my mouse is compromised by all this clutter. Is there a way to work around this? I never know how many times to hit the back button.

Answer:Back button doesn't go back (sort of)

I think you came across a redirect page. When you go to certain pages you are redirected to other pages. When you click the "go back" button you go back to the redirect page, which sends you to another page. And than you get stuck. In those situations just use the drop down menu (like you have on your screenshot) and go to the page before the redirect one, in that case it would be the volume out vista something one.


Whenever your "go back" button doesn't work, just use the dropdown menu to jump the redirect page.

Hi, I am in the process of changing PCs and will be going form Vista to Windows 7. I used the back-up utility in Vista to back-up my files to re-install to the new PC but I'm confused as to whether it will have backed up my programmes (photoshop, microsoft office etc)? In the help files it says it doesn't back-up programme files and when I look at what's on the external hard drive everything is zipped and I can't tell what's been backed-up. Any help greatfully received. I will be doing a separate back-up with WD hard drive with it's smartware software too to see if that is any clearer. I'm also guessing from this that it will be difficult to find specific things on the hard drive (eg. photo's or music) without re-installing the whole lot on the new PC?

Answer:Does Visa back-up utility back up programmes?

No thats why it tells you it doesn't

When I was on 7100 RC x64 Ultimate, whenever I download something to a folder and if that folder already has several files in it all starting with abc...then when I type the first a, Windows would cleverly drop down a list of file names all starting with a and I can select from the drop down list of just simply type in a new file name to save as.........now after installing 7600 x64 Pro RTM, that option is no longer there, there isn't any more drop down list like before......and I don't think this is special feature only for Ultimate...maybe I accidentally turn off this feature? but I couldn't remember anything like that....how do I get that feature back or is there anything in Windows 7 that I can reset to all defaults?

Thanks.

Answer:How do I get back drop down list...save as back?

OK, here is the pix.....under 7100 RC x64 Ultimate, the moment I typed in D, Windows 7 would immediately drop down a list of file names all starting with D from that folder, but now in 7600 X64 Pro RTM, it just sit there, just like in the pix....

Perhaps someone could do a simple test on your machine and confirm....create a blank text.txt file any where and try to save the text file to a folder that already have a few files in it (lets say that folder has file1, file2 and file3), now save your file as file4 and see the moment you type in the first "f" , any drop down menu which has file1, file2 and file3 for you to choose? or just like the pix attached?

Thanks.

I am using Windows 7 Home Premium. When I run Windows back-up I get a message advising me to check it. I find that it did not complete because it could not find 3 files (always the same ones) with the error code 0x80070002. It seems that this is preventing it from backing up anything at all, which is rather disconcerting. Please can you help?

Answer:WINDOWS back up cannot complete - so it doesn't back up at all!

Hi everyone, i'm new to the site, and just wondering if anyone can help me with my major spyware problem/virus.
The virus appeared yesterday while I was surfing the web (Youtube, Break, ect. No "dirty" sites.)
When it appeared I had a shock, which then I immedietly deleted it, after that, it came back.
when I wasn't surfing the internet. It's been happening every hour for about a day.
The directory it's in is (C:\windows\temp\pwtemp2\iepv.exe) and it hides as iepv.exe.
With further research, i found out it's actually a password viewer for internet explorer, but really just another spyware program to steal passwords. (Thank god I use firefox)
I never have downloaded one of these programs, and here I am, present you my problem.

I'm in the process of up-grading a ex-works compaq deskpro which needs a cd-rom and up-grading to win98 from win95, I have found a manual for it, and some drivers concerning sound. But have no other resource disk for it.Where are controllers kept to? I ponder this as I have no resource disk for the mother board.I'm waiting for a reply from compaq concerning how to get my hands on one, but while waiting my intentions was to copy the hard drive onto a spare one for back-up just in case.So what I really want to know is, will this copy contain all controllers that I need to run the mobo, if things go wrong. I do intend to make a start up disk for win95 as well.

I was reading about Windows Home Server and it looks very cool. It offers tons of features besides just file backups. I currently have an infrant NV+ Nas box full of 500gb drives. I was wondering if there is a reason to keep this box if I installed WHS? I mean right now I use the NAS for backups and that is it.
 

Answer:Reason to keep NAS and WHS?

WHS has the best backup system you'll see for a home system IMHO.

I use both. I have a QNAP TS-209 with 1TB, a QNAP TS-201 with 640GB, and a WHS with 2.0TB.

They all have their uses

I have an unsecured wireless network (Modem/Router NetGear DG834Gv4) in house to which 3 devices do connect: a NetGear WG111v2, a Logitech Squeezebox and a Kindle 3g (the one with the with keyboard).

The following devices won't connect to the network:

Wireless USB Adapters: NetGear WG111v3, an ASUS and a TL-WN721N: the latest Kindle and an IPhone.

All of these scan and find the network but fail to connect.

The problem is independent of OS (the response of the WUAs is the same on a WINXP and a WIN7 PC) so, it seems to me, the only likely culprit left is the modem/router.

ANY suggestions would be welcome.
 

Answer:What might the reason be?

Fail to connect.......why? What happens? Do you get an error? What error? Do you have enough IP addresses for all the devices? Did you reset the router to defaults? Disable encryption?

I have a problem that is driving me nuts. I have an older standalone Dell that I mostly use to play older games. It is a Pentium III (550 mhz) with 384 MB of ram running Win 98. My problem is the CD drive. For some reason it will open data and picture CD's absolutley fine, but does not want to open videos or the game CD's that I have installed. I am using WMP 6.4 (?) for videos and when I attmpt to open one, I get the hourglass for about 30 seconds, but no luck. Same if I try to return to a game I have been playing. If I do the three finger salute, I see that it is a running application, but it never opens. Sometimes, it takes ten attempts to open a video and once it is successful, I have no further trouble until I turn the PC off and try a new session. Somedays, I can't get the game or video to open at all. This PC came from a smoking enviroment so I thought perhaps it was just dirty. I went out an got a new CD drive (48x) to replace it hoping that would cure the problem, but no go. Can anyone give a clue as to what to look at to solve this problem?

Hi,
starting from today, I'm experiencing lags on pretty much everything..
When I came back from work, I turned on my laptop
and let it sit booting everything completely (about 5~10 minutes)

Then I tried opening google chrome, and it took about 1 minute
just to see the homepage.
during that 1 minute, nothing worked; ctrl alt delete, going on to task manager,
EVERYTHING just froze.

I felt weird, but I tried playing game with it which I never see lags.
But every few minutes, the game freezes for like 20 seconds which makes impossible to play on with the game.


I had once experienced this kind of problem
at that time, I heard it was because of some recent windows update, so I ended up restoring pc for some random available date before the update. And now after several weeks, the problem came back to me again.
I tried to ignore any windows update that shows up, but it seemed my pc updated itself somehow several times.

Is the reason really because of some windows update?
or is there any solution that you guys would suggest....

I really need your help.
Thanks in advance~

Answer:Serious lag for no reason...HELP

I can't seem to figure this out, I've tried their support forum, tried google. Tried reinstalling,

It always gives me a "Erorr: Failed to Open file". Some people say go into the registry, and change a .smp key. Well I don't even have that key.
 

Answer:Reason 3.0

are you running it via WINE in Linux by any chance?

or pirated version?

when you get this error, it usually means that Reason is trying to load the startup demo RNS song, but it can't find this file.

you what you can do is start it by double clicking on a RNS file so it loads that instead of the demo song. then go into options and change it to start with an empty rack instead of the demo. that song is dumb anyway.

tell me if that fixes it.

so im on youtube watching a video, i go to open a new tab (internet explorer) suddenly my whole computer freezes for a second and from then on it goes so slowly you can barely do anything. naturally i open task manager, my cpu is at 100%!! and IE is using 20% - 40% of that (dont know if thats normal, i assume not) however there isnt any sign of anything in processess that may be leeching the rest of that.

next i open process explorer to double check, again nothing (process explorer itself used 20% - 40% according to itself, again dont know if this is normal)

so now im thinking its time to start scanning for viruses, malware etc... and i found nothing, i used my anti virus and a couple of other software to scan.

so then i try to restart maybe that will fix it, ofcourse it didnt.

i didnt uninstall anything since i didnt install (or download) anything for about two week now.

i updated my drivers, nothing.

i went into msconfig disabling all third party and start up programs, nothing.

now if im not doing anything (not browsing etc.) cpu usage stays at around 11% however as soon as i do anything im back at 100% (it does range from 70% to 100% but most of the time its above 90%).

can anyone tell me what might be wrong with my computer please before i try to restore or format (which i really dont wanna do)?

Answer:cpu goes to 100% for some reason

Check the Resource Monitor -

I have been running my site click here on ie6 for some time, no problem. Irecently downloaded IE7 and found that for some reason it would not bring up the prompt box on click hereAfter being able to solve this i downloaded a standalone version of 1e6. Great the prompt box appears! However now on other pages the pages are downloading and a prompt box comes up saying click ok if you wish to continue downloading the content of this page.This does not happen on other sites or other computers. It does not happen on this site on other browsers.Strange!Any ideas?louandel

Answer:pop box for no reason

I have realised that when I click the prompt box to make it go it does not go straight away. I have to click 7 times. The same amount of times that as the number of flash buttons on nav bar I have. In fact when i just did it it showed the page loading one flash button at a time. so does any one know if i may have some security on being cautious about flash that I need to take away? And if so....where is it?of course i maybe totally wrong...thanx for your helplouandel

Hi,

I'm currently experiencing a fps lag in all the games I play on my laptop, and my laptop is really slow with everyday use too.

I have a U46E-BAL6

CPU: Intel 2nd Gen Core i7 i7-2620M, 2.7 GHz
RAM: 8G
GRAPHICS: Intel HD Graphics 3000

Is there a reason for this?

Answer:reason for FPS lag?

Try Getting the latest drivers, Your graphics 3000 shouldn't be lagging that far behind.
You can have Intel automatically scan for drivers using the application in this link : Intel? Driver Update Utility
And if it is slow with everyday use, do you ever clean and defrag? If not then you can find instructions in this link along with various other tips to help supercharge windows 7

Another thing is that the graphics card isn't exactly the best for gaming and such, but it should handle.

Hi,
I realized my battery was drained quite fast since I updated to 10240 build of W10 TP. I checked the task manager, and there were two tasks using 10% of CPU each one.
One is called "Windows Driver Foundation" and the other one, "Service host: local system", is like a bunch of little tasks.
When I restart the Surface it disappears but gets back after a while, and persists even if I close all the programs... anyone has an idea about how to fix it? Or is it actually normal?
Thanks everyone for reading :)

Have been a tester for W7/MS and have used now the official version of W7 for several months and yet....I cant be enthusiastic anymore...have never experienced Vista, so....still "kind of clinging" to my XP.... Please give me some benefits for keeping W7 from your experiences...

Answer:any reason why I should keep W7??

Um, It WORKS??? I've run Vista for almost a year on this computer and had several PITA issues with it.. upgraded to W7 a few weeks back and so far GREAT! No more BS screw ups.. runs WAY FASTER than Vista did... no beefs here to date! Some here will groan at this statement, but some of the new buttons / taskbar features are sort of Mac like..and ripoff or original idea or whatever who cares.. it's a cool feature and it works! But it's up to you.... hang on to the old.. or use the new one they seem to have "got right".....

I have a old T40 with windows XP. Recently my DVD start ejecting with no reason. any solution?





CowThinpad T40 + X100e(athlon Dual core L335, window 7 home premium)

Answer:DVD ejecting with no reason

It's very possibe you have a failing optical drive, I suggest you substitute a known good drive. If you don't have one I might be willing to loan you one if you cover the postage, or would be glad to let you keep it if you have something of equal value to trade. If you'd like my help, feel free to send me a PM. Also, if you want to rule out the possibility of a sofrware error, you can boot the system from a linux liveCD, if it boots up and runs fineusing linux, then your problem is likely software, but the simpliest solution would be to swap out the drive.

Hi all,

My PC with is only a few months old has just started to restart for no apparent reason.

I am not running it under any load (just web-browsing with Nortons running in the background).

What happens is I will be using the PC and then the screen will go black and the system will just shut off, no error messages or anything. Then it just boots up like I have just come, sat down, and pressed the power button.

It boots up fine into Windows like nothing has happened. There are no start up error messages, e.g. "Windows has not been shut down correctly" ect... nothing. I log into my profile and all the programs load up and its all like normal.

This is very weird. It's not operating in any particularly "hot" conditions that what it normally does (the air temp is about 30 degrees c) and there doesn't seem to be an exact cause for this issue. I have also cleaned the side dust-vents 2 weeks ago to keep them clean, and the air flowing (I do a clean up every 2 months normally). I checked the internals then also and it didn't seem to be too dusty inside.

It's quite annoying as it shut down when I was using a program or browsing the net and I had to wait for it to start back up and then open everything again.

If anyone has any ideas or solutions it would be appreciated, I have done a search on this issue, but non of the results/problems apply to me in this situation.

I just got a custom PC an A10-7870K apu, r7 370X graphics card and 8GB corsair vengeance ram and I don't know why but it keeps freezing on screen. It will nit recover from it and it is completely unresponsive at this point as well. I have already installed the correct drivers for it so it isn't that problem. I think it is overheating because I checked my apu temp after running garry's mod for 5 mins and it was at 74 degrees celsius. Not to mension that the cpu fan is constantly on high most of the time and it is abnoxiously loud. Is that the problem or is it the hard drive? Need gelp quickly!

Rig.
Rx 480, undervolted to stop throtting at high temps.
A8 A8 6600k
450w

I have an amd apu that refuses to stay at a set clock speed while gaming, even if I'm using my discrete gpu the apu will throttle. Ill get an average 300-360 fps in csgo low settings then when something intensive happens it drops to as low 40 with a huge lag spike making it unplayable.
Settings in game dont effect these lag spikes, but do effect average fps.
Using the cpuz app I see my core speed and apu mulltiplier doesn't change until I get those lag spikes and they both drop signifigantly. (The multiplier goes from 42 to either 19 or 32 usually)
Ive disabled every power saving option in the bios and control center options have been set to max performance. Amd power now is off and I don't have cool and quiet as an option. I've updated drivers an bios.
Also my cpu is locked in offset mode, idk if that would have anything to do with it. (I have messed with its settings an got no change in performance)
 

Answer:APU throttling for no reason

The AMD A8-6600K APU processor and AMD Radeon RX 480 graphic card in your gaming rig use a combined total of 250W of power.


You didn't provide the brand name and model number of that 450W power supply, so we don't know at this point if it's a quality one.
Even if it is, your gaming rig probably needs one with more wattage.

I'm not a gamer nor an over-clocker, so someone else here who is can address those issues.

Hello Lenovo Community, i am writing this, since i noticed some wierd behaviour of my ThinkPad R61 since 2 weeks ago. To be more precise, it is about my ThinkPad R61 8918 DEG which i did purchase 12 months ago.I am running Windows Vista Business (with Service Pack 2) on it.Windows Update and ThinkVantage System Update are running twice a week.So Windows, all Drivers and the Lenovo Applications are up-to-date.Okay, enough about the specifications and back to my problem. First time i recognized the error i wasn't really noticing it, since i wasn't right at the Laptopwhen it did happen. I just came back to it and saw it was turned off. Since 2 weeks this error occurs on a random basis without any reasons i could encounter:1) Laptop-LCD turns black - Laptop isn't turning off yet (i did let it play some music in the background to check that. Music continued playing)2) Music is stopping and continues playing again (like when the system would be under a heavy load)3) Music finally stops4) Laptop-LCD is staying off and the Laptop is just switching off. Until now i didn't check much for possible hardware problems.I did a complete re-install of Windows Vista and just had a complete PC-Doctor 5 for Windows check running which didn't show any problems.For the next checkup i am gonna have a real memtest - the bootcd is right beside me already.Tho i doubt it will give any other results. The Fan isn't on a strike either, but i am gonna have a Temperature/Voltag... Read more

Answer:R61 turns off for no reason

Okay... Now this is a fast reply by myself.I just wanted to run the memtest like i did state earlier when the Laptop just decided to turn off again.So i thought: let's give Notebook Hardware Control a shot - even if the Fan isn't going beserk and seems to be alright.I was shocked... CPU Temperature was around 80 degree Celcius. I did read the other posts about R61 temperature problems before posting, but since i had no problems with the Fanand no problems with turning on the Notebook again after it turned off (like others stated: unplugging psu, getting battery off, putting it back in and plugging the psu back aswell) i seriously didn't think it could be about the CPU's temperature... Well... So that seems to be the reason for my problem. I just have to decide now what to do.Sending it in or trying to clean it up by myself.  Anyway, thanks for reading.  Regards,xap2009

Hello,

About a week ago my PC had restarted on its own when I wasn't there and was stuck on a screen saying "Reboot and Select Proper Boot device or Insert Boot media in Selected Boot device and press any key ". I manually restarted the PC but nothing was shown on the screen. I turned off the PC, disassembled it and took out the BIOS battery and left it there for about 30 minutes. I then put everything back together and booted. The PC started fine but after about one hour it crashed for no reason. Since last week sometimes it crashes or restarts either within minutes from logging into windows either within an hour but never over 2 hours. At first I though it was a power supply issue, I had a Corsair VX550W for the last 4 years and so I replaced it with a brand new Corsair TX650, this has not solved anything though. But since I replaced the PSU the PC now only restarts every 1 hour when I am logged into windows. However, at this moment I have left it open into BIOS and it is working for 2 hours without any restart.
My second guess is overheating. I used AIDA64 to monitor the temperature and the readings were:
Motherboard: 40C
CPU: 40C
GPU Diode(DispIO) : 49C
GPU Diode(MemIO): 62C
GPU Diode(Shader): 60C

In order to be sure that it is not overheating I replaced the CPU's cooler today and also refreshed the thermal paste.

The bottom line is that for now my PC restarts almost every hour despite what I am doing; even when idle or working at 100%. When it rest... Read more

Answer:PC restarts for no reason

If you stop the automatic restarts you will get a error message which will help us to understand what is happening.To do this go to My Computer and right click on it, click on Properties, click on Advanced System Settings, click on Settings under Strartup and Recovery, remove the check mark in the box for Automatically Restart.You will get a blue screen like the one below, please notice the Stop code at the top of the page.
