Computer Hang After Click Restart


I just got finished reassembling my computer after doing an overhaul and it is doing some weird stuff. I thought it might be the fact that i have 8gb of memory installed and i am still running 32bit vista ultimate (i am about to install windows 7 64bit ultimate)

The computer would hang after i clicked restart. The computer would go to the shutdown screen and then it would go blank, but the computer would not reboot. The odd thing is that it would shutdown just fine, but it would not restart. I just installed an update that it wanted to do at shutdown and it seems to be restarting now. However, now it is giving me a cpu freq. Of 1. 33ghz and fsb of 1333. I have not changed any cpu settings in the bios and intel speed step is disabled. It should be at 2. 66ghz for a q9450, which is what it was when it would not restart on its own. Any ideas?

Overhaul of asus rampage formula motherboard x48
1) installed intel x-25m 160gb g2 drive (secondary drive right now & empty)
2) installed 4gb of ram (brings total to 8gb installed)
3) installed heatsink backplate for ocz vendetta 2
4) unmounted and remounted processor
5) installed new psu corsair hx750 professional series

Mouse Single Click Does Double Click

I used different mice (one with rubber ball and another optical) and both give me the same problems. The rubber ball mouse was connected via ps2 and the optical is usb. When i click-drag, two different situations happen. It's either i'm not able to drag at all (as if the mouse button was let go before i drag, but i'm sure my finger's pressed down on the left mouse button), or i get an incomplete click-drag (aka, the mouse acts like i released the left mouse button while dragging. )

Sometimes, the partial click-drag happens, and without letting go of the left mouse button, another area is click-dragged (along the mouse pointer path). It doesn't matter what application i'm using - word, photoshop, programming language editors, even trying to highlight text on ie's address bar is a gamble. I checked all my hardware configurations in control panel | system and windows doesn't show any irq conflicts or corrupt drivers. It says "this device is working properly" for my mouse and all usb ports. There are times that when i single click, the mouse "quantum-jumps" to a different location on the screen. Then i can drag the mouse from there. This doesn't happen very frequently but it's frequent enough to slow me down in the things i need to do. The interrupted drag happens probably around 90% of the time i try to perform the task. Then there's that "evil single click" that acts as a double click. If i were in ie, clicking the back button once will take me two pages back. This evil single click is probably the cause of why i'm unable to click-drag effectively.

Xp Computer Keeps On Restart

I have windows xp installed on my home pc. With intel 945 motherboard, p 4 1. 5 ghz. When i start my computer, it restarts automatically which is very unexpected. After 2-3 times of automatic restarts the computer works fine. The frequency of the restarts is also variable. Sometimes 1-2 times and sometimes 4-5 times. I cannot figure out if this is the conflict in the drivers/ ports etc or is this a windows problem. ?

I have replaced my motherboard some time back. But since then it worked fine. But now it started giving this problem.

Computer Will Shut Down And Restart Itself

Lately my computer will shut down and restart itself. It will do this at anytime so it doesn't appear to be related to any one task i'm doing. Every time it happens the screen will go black and the computer restarts and once i'm back on the desktop i always get the same error message:

Windows cannot find 'http://oca.microsoft.com/reredir.aspx?Sid=10&bucket=oxa_cmaudio%2b11777&sta te=1&id=4acd04b3-30b1-4321-87cd-adda4910be9b&lcid=1033&os=5. 1. 2600. 2. 00010300. 2. 0. ' make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the start button, and then click search. I haven't a clue what any of this means, except the name "cmaudio" has me thinking my soundcard (c-media cmi8738/c3dx pci card) may be the culprit. The error message also says to make sure i typed the name correctly, but i wasn't typing anything when these errors occured. I have a windows xp home system, p4p800 mobo, intel p4 2. 4ghz cpu, 2 g of kingston pc3200 ram. I run chkdsk and defrag often. I also keep my virus program up to date and scan frequently, along with my two spam programs, spybot and ad-aware. I have everest ultimte edition running in the background so i can always keep an eye on my pc temps and the highest any of my devices ever run is thirty-two degrees. I'm posting here to get some feedback on what could be causing this. I'm thinking i should get a new sound card because of the "cmaudio" in the error message. That card is ancient anyway. I'm going to check the ram and possibly the hds for bad sectors, but i'm pretty sure it's neither of those (both the ram and the hds are brand new).

Computer Started To Restart Itself

First, i had a amd epox 8rda+ mobo. The problem started with the red voltage values at the startup of the computer: sometimes voltage values(i don't remember which yet) are colored in red computer wouldn't start. When there were no red's everything were working fine. And some days it happened that when i powered the computer there was only a black screen . I tested all the hardware an finally found it was the mobo. I took it to a repair shop and they told me the problem is the capacitors near the cpu: they swelled and needed to be replaced. But after the replacement the repairman told me the chip of mobo was damaged and can only work with 1100 hz freq. , But my cpu is 1700xp, so it didn't work with me. With that i bought a new mobo foxconn 600a01 and plugged my hdd without having formatted into the mobo. I used the computer a while(about 1-2 days), and then the computer started to restart itself anytime(while playing games, surfing, or just doing nothing). After the restart it was saying "the system has recovered from a serious error" and giving this error details:

Bccode: 1000007e
Bcp1: c0000005
Bcp2: f7d62e1d
Bcp3: f49f0a44
Bcp4: f49f0740
Os. Ver: 5_1_2600
S_p: 2_0
Product: 256_1

I turned the automatic restart off but it didn't work. After a while screen started to go off when windowsxp started and then restart itself. And now: the screen turnes into black while loading xplogo on the blcak screen, sometimes 1-2 min after the logon. I was able to copy 2 error codes fragmentarily in the event viewer:

1. ) Sspd dis. Service entered the running state
2. ) Error code 100000ea
Par?1 : 815b8638
Par?2 : 81a57970
Par?3 : f9e65cb4
Par?4 : 00001

Sorry i forgot what was writn in par?X field and so put a question mark there. I should add one of the self_restarts i heard beeps but i dont remember how their codes were. I fear that mobo went down again but please dont tell me this. By the way here are my hardware:

* Amd1700xp
* 160gb hdd
* 2 optic driver
* Geforce mx440 display adapter
* 2 sticks of ram:1) 256mbddr400 2)256mbddr333
* 300watt frisby power supply

Computer Shuts Off At Random, Then Restart

My computer suddenly started shutting off, then, after a second or two, restarting - as if i turned it off and on. There are no error messages in the log files. In the bios, i set it not to restart, but it does. The only thing that shows up in bios error logs is keyboard not connected - but i have a saitek that i connected months ago. (Long enough for the darn key caps to start wearing off. ) The keyboard shows up in the device manager. The problem became evident when i tried to upgrade webroot spyware - and the update just took off and hogged 97% of my system resources, forcing me to shut it down and remove it. I've cleaned everything in the tower. Removed and replaced the conductivity jell on the heat sink for the chip. Removed the side of the tower and added a desk fan to blow into it. Bios reports temps running around 158 to 160 degrees. All fans are functional. Have run spybot s&d to check for problems. Have cleaned the registry with 3 different registry cleaners. Used advanced windows care v2 to repair problems. I use aol landline, not dsl or cable, as an isp.system shuts down and restarts at short intervals when i first turn it on in the morning. The intervals later grow longer, ranging between 30 minutes and 8 hours. Sometimes, even that interval shortens. Please don't tell me it's my motherboard! Btw, system is 4 years old. Built specifically with a huge power supply at a reputable computer store. It's not off the shelf.configuration: windows xp internet explorer 7. 0

Hang On Post Caused By Drive

I have a foxconn 945gz7mc ks2h board and two sata drives attached (1x320gb samsung, 1x 1tb seagate). I've thrown freenas on there and all was going well; until i setup my 1tb drive. I formatted it to the ufs filesystem from within freenas. I managed to move files over and play with it for a little bit. Ever since then; no matter what i do the system will not get past post if that drive is connected. I've tried taking the drive out, put it in another machine; it works fine - i even restored it back to an ntfs drive and it still hung at post on the other board. I'm at a loss - does anyone have any ideas?

Mouse Cursor Click Triggering

For no obvious reason my laptop has developed a fault where if you move it slightly it triggers the mouse click and starts triggering actions (depending on where the cursor is pointing). Anybody experienced this before?

For example if you are sitting with it on your lap surfing the web then adjust your sitting position you end up navigating to different web pages - any thoughts?

It is a fujitsu siemens amillo laptop.

On Click Mouse Highlight / Select Everything On A Page

I seriously have no idea what's been going on. My mouse seems to have become possessed today as it's doing some funky things. I have the mx duo keyboard and mouse combo and have owned them for less than a year. Problems that i are having with it are primarily with its responses. Sometimes when i click on certain links the poitner turns into a "wrong or no sign" (basically a circle with a line through it). Other times when i click only once on a page or on desktop and try to scroll down it begins to highlight everything. It's as though the mouse is lagging. I don't think it's any of my applications. The only thing i have recently changed about my setup is my monitor, but everything else has been fine up until now. Does anyone know if gel padded mouse pads can wear enough to the point that the mouse doesn't read correctly? Anyone have any suggestions?

Keep Hearing Click Sound From Hard Drive

First of all i have a problem with my new pc lets see i have a seagate 7000. 9 250gb st3250824as

When i go to play a game it after a while goes blue screen and restarts especially in civ 4 but it also does this in supereme commander and age of empires 3 i think its all games really. 3. Its failed the seatools for windows short and long self drive tests but passes generic tests (it used to pass all the tests). I use windows vista and it runs fine only when i go to play a game it goes blue screen and crashes lets see it also stops on fire fox sometimes and other progras but it always lets me use my os fine. Ive defraged the hard drive and also i have done chkdsk scanned for a virus and reset the ram repositioned the hard drive and checked all the connections new sata cables hmmn also tried using ubuntu live disk that worked fine i didnt format it tho as it was already formated at first use.

Mouse Can Move But Doesn't Recognize Any Click

I have a gigabyte 7v-axp motherboard using a ps/2 mouse. Yesterday some water was spilt on my keyboard and mouse (not by me), anyway keyboard and mouse did not work anymore.got a new keyboard and mouse. Keyboard works fine but mouse does not. The mouse will move but will not recognize any kind of click. The left mouse button occasionally responds and the right never does. When the left mouse button does work it does not work properly. I have tried using the mouse in a usb port and still does not work. Updated the driver from microsoft but i have ruled out it being a driver problem since i dual boot with linux and the mouse does not work in linux. So now im leaning on being a motherboard problem, but it is odd that the mouse can move fine without a problem and does light up when windows starts, etc. The only thing i could thing of is the bus that the clicks go through on the motherboard maybe shorted out?

Usb Flash Drive Error When Double Click To Open

I have a kingston usb flash drive and formatted it to ntfs on vista. Now my question is related to xp. Every time i plug it into a xp machine it will run the auto-play but whenever i go into my computer and try to double click it, it gives me an error saying windows cannot find g:m.exe. But if i right click and select open it will open up. I am wondering why it would be giving me an error with the double click method and not with the other one. I don't even know why it would be looking for an executable file on a usb flash drive. If anyone can give some insight please let me know.

Restart Problem

I have been having a serious problem with my computer lately. When i am playing games for a while the computer will just suddenly restart. It has happened even with a fresh format and install on windows 2000 and windows xp pro. I set windows 2000 to show me the error code with the bsod and it came up with this. Driver_irql_not_less_or_equal
Stop 0x000000d1
(0xf0000000, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x85460e4f)

Now i don't know if this is the problem it's been having because it has only done it once and im waiting for it to happen again to verify it. But how would i go about fixing this?

Also my -12v reading is at something like -167. Something. Is this correct? My +12v is fine and running at exactly +12v. I don't know if this is related or not.

System Failure ( Restart )

Cannot Install Os, Strange Looping Restart

Upon install and startup it just turned itself off. Never a good sign -_- after a bit i worked out the chip was overheating due me putting too much thermal grease on. Though the temps went down the problem still remained, i still thought temps were a bit high (50c idle) and lo! And behold i was an idiot and had plugged the cpu fan into the wrong plug and it wasn't spinning fast enough >_<
With that fixed it did get further before it started restarting again. The symptoms are, i turn it on. Bios works fine everything is seen. It then starts to load the os (either vista 64 or xp pro) and at some stage it just restarts itself. Sometimes this happens right at the start, sometimes i get into the gui. But its never made it through. I took it into the pc repair shop today as i was at my wits end, they replaced the ram and gfxcard and took out the other misc pci cards and tried. Tried a different chip, thought it might be the bios, flashed it, tried again, and so on and so on with varying combos of my stuff and/or their stuff. And always it restarts itself. Tomorrow i'm going in to check up and see if they found anything, but has anyone ever come across a problem like this one?

They are pretty sure its not the ram, happens with their test ram. They are pretty sure its not the gfxcard it happens with their test card. The most likely candidates i was told were the chip and the mobo but it seemed to happen with their chip as well (but this may need further testing. )

The bios flash did help the mobo recognise the chip "better" but didnt solve the problem. Everything displays fine in the bios, temps are now normal, and everything is seen. When i left they were trying a new hdd in it.
