Christy Burton: I just saw Tyler here.
Robbie Ferguson: Hi, Tyler.
Christy Burton: I would like to say hi to Tyler. He had some troubles with the P4 NetVista. “IBM NetVista Pentium 4 that keeps running like cutting out on me,” he says. I was running spin right on it to check the hard drive integrity and again it randomly died so clearly it’s not the hard drive. Oddly enough it also wears them and they started back up again on its own. How do I check if it’s the power supply or if it’s haunted or something else? If you think it’s the power supply where can I go to look up what I should get to replace it?
Robbie Ferguson: FrozenCPU.com has a really great power supply tester. I actually know the stuff off of the top of my head.
Christy Burton: I'm amazed. You amazed me.
Robbie Ferguson: What you want to do though Tyler is you want to know what’s causing this and most commonly this is going to be either your CPU fan is completely clogged with dust and it’s not cooling off and so it’s overheating and your computer just save your hardware from dying, your BIOS says, “Okay, it’s too hot, reboot.” And so what happens then is that the effect that you're describing. So open up the chassis and look at the fan. Make sure that that it is not saturated in dusts.
On top of that your video card. If it’s got a fan on your video card make sure that your video card is not too close to the next card in line because sometimes that will effect air flow. You're not going to be able to get enough air flow to the video card. That will cost things like blue screen death in Windows. That will cause things like random reboot and things like that because again your computer is trying to conserve your hardware it thinks the best way to do that is to shut it off.
Then the next one that I would look at is your RAM module so you can use a program called Memtest86+. It’s just going to scan those RAM modules just to make sure that they’re defective and you know ground yourself and touch those modules where the power is on and see if they’re running pretty hot too and that’s something to look at.
Christy Burton: It love fences buy a can of air.
Robbie Ferguson: Yeah, a can of air to blow out that you CPU fan but if it’s really bad you really need to have a professional look at it because we have some more command that we actually need to completely disassemble the cooling system in order to get that cleaned out where a can of air would actually push the dusts right down into the heat sink. Sometimes that wouldn’t work for you so you may need to have a professionally done if it’s really bad but it kind of vary.
If it’s not too thick you can probably get away with that as well but those are the first things I would look at if it’s still having after that we know it’s not your software so it’s definitely something is going on with the hardware I would say get it into a technician if those things don’t resolve it or at least it tells you what you need to take a look at.
Christy Burton: John Roberts and Carrie mentioned that just used your lungs and then Robert says, “Yeah, he’s going to have a couple of cans and forgot to close his eyes.”
Robbie Ferguson: Yeah, you have dusts on that fan right all over it.
