Windows 10: Windows 10 keeps restarting every 5 min.

  1.    12 Jan 2017 #1

    Windows 10 keeps restarting every 5 min.


    Currently using a 2007 Alienware went from windows vista to windows 10 32bit and change the processor core 2 duo 2.33ghz to core 2 extreme 3.0 ghz
    • motherboard xfx nforce 680i sli
    • graphics card geforce 480 gtx
    • 6gb ram
    • installed a 1tb hard drive


    I'm not sure how to fix this and geek squad is charging 250 just to get my pc fixed! Base on what I read on the forum I need to update my bios and that my computer does not meet the spec of windows 10 which is not true I ran a spec test before I installed my windows 10.

    I was thinking to uninstall my windows 10 and install a 64 bit instead of the 32 bit im currently using.

    Im not sure anymore whats causing my desktop to keep restarting every 5 minutes I cant even access my bios.

    My problem is not blue screen of death but my windows 10 continually restarting without consent.

    Then you need to post this in the General Support | Windows 10 Forums

    As the notice at the top of the forum and your thread says:

    Please do not post anything other than Windows 10 Blue Screen Of Death problems in this section.

    Let me see if I can get it moved.
