I tried everything

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So i tried everything to keep my pc from random rebooting.

It was :

Replacing every single component except CPU(Processor)

But it still keeps rebooting.

Just want to ask you a quick question

If there is a lil bit of thermal paste or any Dirt substance on cpu pins ?

Can it cause this?

Note: The reboot is like someone plugged pc out from wall and replugged it

What are your current system specs ?

does this happen under load or anytime?

Also can it be due to Faulty power chord or a extension?

It depends what paste you use, some are, some aren't.
Dirt/dust can be also conductive as dust round the house is mostly human skin and hair which can conduct electricity.

If you have dirt down there definitely give it a blast of air.
If you have paste down there its more difficult to clean, LGA sockets are a total nightmare to clean without damaging them.


Outside of that when it reboots what actually happens, does the PC fully power off/back on?  Or does it stay on, but just resets?

The PC just power off fully and thes restarts

 

Also can it be due to faulty power chord?

Power cord is possible that its expanding in the heat causing a short, but usually this would be a more catastrophic failure as you would be shorting out the main supply, which would hopefully trip your breaker/rcd/whatever.
Or its expanding disconnecting it from a terminal.

I find it unlikely, as in both cases it wouldn't normally just turn straight back on after.

I would more likely say power supply, but if you have already replaced it then it seems unlikely
