OOOO..THe mystery of the broken computer semi-solved

1 replies 1 views Edited Dec 3, 2006
guess what....
the computer booted fine...perfectly...just tweeked it a lil...it fixed itself *ya i know...wth..*

but i still figured it was overheating..thats why it was restarting itself..

so we downloaded prime95...a stress tester
and a cpu/ram temp/voltage meter

ran the stresser twice...guess what?
the cpu core temp was barely making it past 40 degrees...when the program halted itself at an error..
the rated temp is way the hell above 40...so its like what the hell..
we downloaded another meter....that showed volatages of pretty much everything
ran the stresser...

*magic moment*

the moment the tester halted itself...the power supply volatage went crazy.....
ran it again...same thing...




so we arnt allowed to use the computer until we figure out how to fix it
sad day..
guess ill be using this crappy windows 98 for a while..

Okay?  Good for you, dude.  Why do you need to tell us this?
