This saturday i upgraded my pc and mb from athlon to phenom 9550 (gigabyte - GA-MA770-ds3)..

From the first time i booted the machine got rebooted immediately after the os selection menu...

I thought it would be some s/w issue.. and was just googling about this issue in my laptop... and it looked like overheating could be a problem...

So i removed the case turned on the a/c and allowed it to cool... only after that iam able to boot it, if i turn off the a/c the pc just restarts in some 10 mins.. and after that no way it can get to the OS logo screen itself (just rebooting automatically )

So this is the problem ... t pc is just rebooting immediately and right now iam debugging it as overheating could be the issue (with my findin i feel its very likely)..


can some one please HELP me out of this issue...

If you go into the bios when you first turn on the machine, somewhere in there it will show the temp of the cpu, could you check that and report back. Also when you replaced the cpu did you use the same Heatsink or did you use the one supplied(if supplied) with the new cpu.

Is this a fresh or repaired OS install or just a plain motherboard+CPU swap?

the more changes you make, the less likely it is that windows will be able to adapt. the reason is that during install, it loads only the drivers necessary to run your current setup. it needs different drivers (from the cd) to run certain things. you can try a repair, but it's usually going to format everything anyway.

the best way to import your old stuff is to either:
a) save a copy and then copy it over using a floppy, flash drive, CD, dvd, or other removable hardware after you've reformatted the hd.
b) if you are installing a new hd, attach the old hd temporarily and copy the data files over (don't copy over windows. there will be a .dll conflict if you have two different versions in the same path.)
c) use the import files and settings wizard (or whatever it's called.) i usually do a), but windows can automatically import your old data to your new computer.
