I agree that random reboots usually relate to a power supply issue, total output has nothing to do with it.

The Op asked for advice then doubts the good advice he recieves is true? Random reboots and power supply issues usually go hand in hand so the advice is sound.

In this case trying a different power supply is the first thing I would try, although the system working outside of the box but not inside the box might point to another problem, shorted board or loose connections, maybe try a different sata cable.

The system working outside of the box, but not in it, is what hardens my belief that it's purely an electrical problem, not a software problem. It's quite possible that it's an inadequate power supply but more likely to be an intermittent short.. but beyond my ability to diagnose sight unseen

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit 6.1.7600 build 7600
 
 

About the power pack, i did mention that we tested it. What i forgot to mention was that we tested it with a different power pack too, and the problem persisted.

It was only when we took it out the case that the problem stopped. Even when putting it into a different case to the old one, the problem then returned. Im not sure what the error message above means.

The reason that i doubted it was because i forgot to mention that we had previously tested the essentials etc with a different power supply. That was one of the first things that came to mind, was that the power supply might have had a bad connection somewhere, or that it was shorting somewhere causing the pc to randomly reboot.

As i said before, i am totally unsure if there is a hardware or software issue. But i am sure the error message i posted about 3 posts back will be useful?

Here are more details to the problem:

When my pc goes into sleep mode (when you have to move either the mouse or tap a key on the keyboard to get it running again), it reboots almost every single time i try "wake it up" so to speak.

Also, when i open applications, or just do random things, it reboots. Then goes into bios as if it were starting up... Then reboots a few times before getting to the windows logon screen.

Another bit of info is that i am using both SATA and IDE drives in my pc.

Yet more info:

Just before it reboots, i hear one of the drives making a sound as if it is starting or booting up then.. crash.

Sorry for typing half an essay... but the more info i give here, the better.

What kind of cooling system you using? Passive or Active? The reason I ask is I had a similar issue and it turned out to be excess heat.

Just a thought.

Check the flow of air in your system. the fans may not be circulating the air properly and causing the cpu to overheat. i suggest get some cpu monitoring software and check that its still running cool
