    Hi, this is my first post. im pretty new to pc hardware and how to diagnose it. im running windows 7 and have been plagued with constant pc restarts every 5-20 mins average. i looked around and the temperature seems to be a likely cause. i used 'CPUID HWMonitor' to save the results. Can you please have a look at the attachment and tell me if my pc temperature is ok.
    Thanks

    The temps seem OK but the voltages look a little suspicious
    Voltage 0 1.33 Volts [0x53] (CPU VCORE)
    Voltage 2 3.28 Volts [0xCD] (+3.3V)
    Voltage 3 4.87 Volts [0xB5] (+5V)
    Voltage 4 11.84 Volts [0xB9] (+12V)
    Voltage 5 -11.90 Volts [0xBA] (-12V)
    Voltage 7 4.81 Volts [0xB3] (+5V VCCH)
    Voltage 8 3.06 Volts [0xBF] (VBAT)


    MY system see screenshot please
    Use another system monitor and see what that says

    Although yours are within the tolerance figures eg 5% on 12 volt rail - a second check would help

    I agree with Macboatmaster, your voltages are certainly a bit suspect. HWMonitor is not as reliable as it used to be and speedfan is getting a bit old. What motherboard do you have, does the manufacturer have their on system monitoring utility? Also, have a look in the BIOS and see what the voltages are reported as there, this will be accurate.

    Where the screenshots taken with your system just idle at the desktop?

    thank you both for the reply. im fairly new to this so bear with me please.
    i did the speedfan while the pc was on shortly after start-up.
    Sometimes the pc will stay on for a while other times restarts constantly for 6-7 hours.
    How to i check the bios for the correct voltages please?

    Have you checked for dust either in the air vents of the laptop or if a desktop by removing the side panel - looking at speccy I now know it is a desktop, Open the case and check for dust build up


    although that behaviour you describe does not appear to readily suggest a temp issue.


    On your attachment you have this
    Advanced SystemCare Service 8
    it is the kiss of death sooner or later - to the health of your computer I strongly recommend you uninstall it
    and Driver booster - also IOBit


    IOBit I think - indeed it could be the cause of the problem

    yea it is a desktop. I use Advanced SystemCare Service 8 quite a bit.
    so as you say this might be the cause. i'll uninstall it all and hopefully it will make a difference.
    Was there any other software or anything that looks dodgy i should remove or change?

    Your computer will be far better without advanced system care OR any other such software
    I have suggested a couple of times that you open the case and see if there is a dust build up on the fans and the cpu cooling fins - with of course the computer shut down and the power cord disconnected


    Nothing else jumps out at me.

    post 4 refers and post 7

    You really do need to do this
