    My rendering system hasn't been working all that great since I put a new Q6600 in it


    Our old family computer broke down last weekend so we order a new one on Monday and was here and built Thursday. I took the old E6550 out of my rendering system and put in into the family computer and the new Q6600 into my rendering system and now my system isn't running too hot

    The rending system boot up just fine and when I log onto my guest account it works like it should but when I log onto my admin account it works but then reboots for no reason


    So what is the problem?

    More info needed i feel. Does it reboot at the same point? What are the temps? Can you stress test it successfully in the guest account?

    Any question that will help you I'll answer.


    15-20 seconds after logging onto the admin account it reboots. The temps shouldn't matter b/c I'll log onto the guest account leave it run then restart and try to log onto the admin account and then it reboots itself. What kind of stress test???

    I'd say more software based rather than hardware. If you can stress it in the guest account without it failing i'd look for any odd software in the admin account. Can you get into safe mode? If so run the usual virus scanners etc...

    SuperPi isn't a very good stress tester, it doesn't run long enough. Run Orthos for stress testing. Prime95 is an outdated method and only runs on a single core, Orthos is basically Prime95, but will test multiple cores.

    I don't think this is the problem here. It's sound like something running on the admin account that isn't running on the guest account is causing the problem. Especially since it happens around the same time whenever you log in to that account. A program or service that is running is having problems. Can you boot into safe mode, go into the admin account and disable everything you possible can on start up, then re-enable one at a time until you find out which one causes the reboot after you enable it.(basically what RinSewand said, but I don't think it's a virus).

    Mmmm i'm agreeing with SPQQKY, on second thoughts i doubt it would be a virus too. Worth a check as well though (Can never hurt to scan the system) Did you install or update anything before or during the upgrade?

    What are you talking about? Prime95 can natively test multiple cores while you must run several instances of Orthos to load a multicore CPU. :thumb:

    Last time I checked (been a while), Prime hadn't been updated since Aug 2004 and only ran one core. But now that I've done a search, it looks like it was updated in May of this year. I've been using OCCT and Orthos and haven't checked on Prime because it hadn't been updated in years.
    Thanks for the heads up.
