Check the system temperature. Post those values here and we'll go from there

hey i do not know how to know the values.....plz if u cud tell that also...
that'll be a real help :|


Field Value
Sensor Properties
Sensor Type Asus Mozart-2 (SMBus 77h)

Motherboard 25 °C (77 °F)
CPU 32 °C (90 °F)

Cooling Fans
CPU 3443 RPM

Voltage Values
CPU Core 1.76 V
+3.3 V 3.38 V
+5 V 5.27 V


Okay, try running the PC and playing the games, only this time, keep the cabnet open. See if you notice any diff. Also, keep an eye on the fans in the cabinet. Make sure they're spinning rapidly.


can this be related to any software i am using... i restored my pc to an eearlier time when it was all fine.....but my pc hasnt restarted yet.....
but then...if its a software prob..then how can the cpu not read the HDD only at the start...but if its a hardware prob...then y isnt it restarting now....its all too confusing......


It could be a software issue. However, the most common reason for reboots is heating. Especially since you said that the reboots occured only when you play games. It figured. While gaming, all of a PCs components are maxed out and generate a lot of heat. If after playing with the cabinet open, the system doesnt reboot, we know for sure its a heating issue. Let's observe the system for some more time and we'll go from there.
