    Hi computer reboots after standing by and or hibernating

    I have win vista home premium 32 bit, xp pro 32 bit and linux mint 8 64 bit and they all behave same way.

    I see desktop for few secs and computer reboots.

    I changed my ram, suggested by foxconn made no difference.

    My mobo is foxconn blackops 4 GB ram total in 2 slots pentium dual core 2 gig cpu

    Can you get to safe mode, run some diagnostics. Can you get to the bios, check your settings, View system temps et al?

    Since this is happening with three different OSes, it points to a hardware problem. Perhaps a faulty power supply or a failing disk drive.

    Hi Paul,

    If your video card or some other hardware has difficulty coming out of stand by, then it may be generating an error causing a reboot so quickly you cannot detect an error message. Go to System Properties in Win7 or XP and select the Advanced tab | click the Startup and Recovery settings button | uncheck automatic reboot on error. It will only take a moment to do so, and then see how the OS responds after coming out of Stand By.

    I would also check the Event Viewer Windows Logs: the Software log, but even more so the Hardware log to see if an error registered points to a hardware device when coming out of Stand By.
