    PC Restarting without any reason? Checkout HDD SATA cable

    It’s very annoying when your computer starts restarting without any indication of problem. I had faced the problem few days back and it really pissed me of. Before going into details I am telling you my PC full configuration- - Intel Core i5 2300 - Gigabyte P67-UD3R-B3 - Transcend 4GB DDR3 RAM - Sapphire Radeon 6850 1GB DDR5 GPU - Samsung 500GB SATA2 HDD for Windows - WD 3TB Green HDD for data - Gigabyte 360W PSU At first my main concern is my power source. I have an IPS connected with my PC for all time backup during any power failure. At first when I saw my computer restarting without any reason I thought that my old IPS if failing to power my PC because of overload. Then I decided to test my PC with a 1200VA UPS and direct power supply. But in both occasion my PC showed the same problem again and again. That makes me completely a fool because I am over sure that I have no problems with my PC components.
    Then my 2 months old Gigabyte 360W power supply became my main concern. I replace it with another power supply. But the problem kept me annoyed. So I decided to tear apart all my components. I even remove my motherboard from the casing. I want to be sure that everything next is on tune.
    After placing motherboard, CPU and graphics card in place I am working on my hard disk SATA connectors. Surprisingly I found that both the SATA connectors of HDD end are not tight at all. I tried to do everything I can but nothing works. It’s not completely loose but loose enough to dislodge on vibration. So I decided to change both the cables with brand new SATA3 cable made by Gigabyte. I found that both of these cables are tight enough not to lose even on force.
    That’s the end of the story of my hardware game. I was still not sure I solved my restart problem. But after using for 3 days I faced no restart problem so far. So I am quite confident that loose SATA cable was the cause of my restart. So keep it in mind friend.
