ok, just 5 minutes ago i was using my pc, litening to music, and browsing the forum, my mouse started to stutter bad, and then the computer just reset. What i am thinking is my psu is overloading? I only have some cheapo nextgen 300W psu and i have 3 fans on my case, a 9600XT and mobo with front usb and such, not that it would make a difference? anyway, the mouse is wireless aswell. What do you think went wrong, do you think it was just a windows error, or hardware related?? cheers.

I dont know alot about these kind of things, but if you have downloaded anything lately is could be a Key-Logger which is when someone hacks into your computer and controls it. Heh I really doubt this though. Any beeps or anything come from the computer?

I would run your Anti-virus and Spyware programs first, the hopefully that don't happen again.

ok, well it happened again, and i am pretty sure its not virus/hacker related. I was burning a cd and listening to music, it does it when its under load. I am sure its not heat, because my cpu is 35 celcius. Could it be the psu overloading then shutting off. If so i need to know before any real damage starts to occur.

Are you still using that harddrive from your other thread? Older ones probably use a bit more power than more recent ones do, and if you have a lot of other things attached it is highly likely it is overloaded. I have a cheapo "350" watt psu(it's actually only about 300) that came with the case for $40 and if i have more than 3 or more HD( i normally have 1 SATA drive and 2 mobile racks that aren't used often), my dvd & floppy drives, and normal cards(9600pro, firewire, tv tuner, ) it crashes the way you described, usually about 30 seconds after windows loads.

I'm amazed my computer is still on then with my 200watt PSU:eek: Run all sorts of scans to see if you can narrow the problem down to one or 2 things.

Well, looks like your on the right track. Most of the hardware runs off the 12v rail, so get one with plenty of watts on that 12v rail. (300 watts?). Finally figured out what that 12v rail was... :D
