View Full Version : [ubuntu] random restarts and Feezes

August 18th, 2009, 12:10 AM
hey, I am having a very annoying issue. My computer is randomly restarting and freezing. It does this in fazes. Sometimes it will restart while booting or just after login, and do so repeatedly and sometimes it wont restart for hours. It does not really matter what I am doing on the machine. Sometimes it wont even get out of the bios. Sometimes the computer will just freeze and is unresponsive to everything and I have to shutdown, and power back up. This machine is a custom build and is using 8.04. I have had it for about 1.5 yrs. It is used solely for Movies and TV shows. The problem started when I took it out of storage. I had it in storage for 2 weeks( I moved, I did the moving and had it in its original box) After the move I also had a dead HD. Before coming to that conclusion I did a full reset of the bios, including pulling the Battery)

Not sure if this is a Hardware of Software issue.
My concern is I shocked the MB,

what do you think? Any ideas would be great Dont wanna have to buy a new one.
