It may help you solve this issue, by knowing WHY your PC is re-booting.

You may want to turn ON
" Disable automatic restart on system failure" in "Advanced startup options"
(Prevents Windows from automatically restarting if an error causes Windows to fail.)
Get there by pressing F8 during boot -- same place as you can set Safe Mode.

Then, when you PC CRASHES, and wants to re-boot, it will pause and hopefully display some information about why it has crashed.

Another thing to consider is:
Is it really an fault in P3D causing the crash, or is it that P3D is over stressing your PC ( overheating CPU (cooler fins dirty), marginal memory etc). ( A CPU, or video card Heatsink can get blocked over time with dust and fluff, Good ram, that has run for years, can develop failing issues)

Try running a good memory tested, and some Stress Testing software.


The fact that there are not masses of others with P3D reporting the issue you are having, would tend to imply that it's not the fault of P3D, but rather P3D is highlighting a weakness in your PC.

I had strange PC crashes last summer. It crashed randomly, it crashed sometimes even in BIOS. The system powerd back on like yours. I rebuild the whole system but the fault reappeard. It turned out that my P3D disk [velociraptor] was dying. It died beyond repair and without the IT-specialist beinig able to save anything from the disc. The HDD took too much power which caused the system to turn it self off and reboot. It is very unlikely that p3D is the cause of a system powering down unless the system isn't cooled properly. P3D or "X stress the CPU a lot. Overcklocked and not properly cooled can make a system to shut off. Check for dust in your machine, check temps. And use the advice of FMPS.

Hello all

after lots off trying the problem still presists done everything from a clean win install to stresstesting the system.

I had a similar issue a few years back that I eventually tracked down to faulty ram, most of the time I got no time to read the blue screen error message so couldn't track it down, eventually I used my other pc to download memtest86 and run it at startup and found the fault straight away, it likely isn't p3d causing the reboot it's just the straw that breaks the camels back so to speak

did the memtest and it gave no errors. only thing i can think off what is wrong is an error in windows or faulty hdd but then again the hdd is only 3 months old so i am unsure.
