The computer completes the memory test, says it passes, then restarts itself.  What's wrong and how do I fix it.

Thanks.

You might want to post this in the Urban Commando section.
Asking for computer help in GD is an invitation to get a lot of stupid answers.



More info needed about your problem.  Please be very specific.

What is your Operating System?

Type of computer, processor and amount of RAM installed

Did you change anything out of the ordinary recently?

Have you done anything to address this specific problem?

If you have XP, Vista or Windows 7 Beta, did you try a System Restore?

Are you saying that at the end of the memory check in Power Up Self Test (POST) the system reboots?

I'd go into the BIOS and load setup defaults and see if it gets past POST.  There could be any number of settings in the BIOS that may be incorrect.

Too much friction.  Get some memory grease.

no no, not ENOUGH friction file down the memory pins. (This will also make your memory full auto)

Either fresh sticks of RAM or a new motherboard.
