Hello,

I am having a desktop assembled with ASUS mother board and AMD processor. My PC is getting continous restart automatically after 5-6 hours of operation and blue screen is coming and messaging like some referenced memory is missing. This process is continous untill i completely switch -off the desktop for another 3-4 hours. My processor/mother board doesn't having a warranty. Please tell me what could be the possible reasons for this.

Thanks in advance.

Sekhar.

You have faulty hardware of some sort.  The most likely culprit, given no further information to go on, would be memory.  Do a search for Memtest86, and run that if you can figure out how - it's not difficult, but you'll need to either create a boot CD/DVD, or set up a USB key for booting.

Given the frequency of your errors, a memory fault would probably turn up quickly during testing, but you still need to run Memtest86 for hours, or even days, to rule out faulty memory.

this could result from corrupted primary memory, overheating due to dust build up, coolers (fans) showing its age and time for a change and whatnot

Agreed, sounds like a memory or over heating problem.

sounds to me like he has cool & quiet on and/or his settings in the BIOS/UEFI configured to auto.  

Personally, I would manually configure the memory timings/frequency/voltage to what is shown on the memory stick's sticker and try that first.  If that doesn't solve it, the next step would be the CPU freq and vcore.

Cheers!
