    Hi Gradeabra,

    Based on no other information on your computer and your problem, I would say that reset is very likely due to overheat. May be a maintenance cleaning up would help.

    Good luck and post back.

    What i mean is that the PC screen suddenly turns black, so i got to reset it and start over again.

    What do you mean? Does this has to do with my Temps folder?

    Nothing he means temperatures.

    Don't use speedfan, use hwmonitor form www.cpuid.org
    CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

    It'll show all the sensor readings.

    I'm not sure a heat issue causes a reboot though, usually the ones I had just shut off.

    I don't think it has anything to do with heats, because i had only switch it on for 15mins at that time.
