So if i accidentally kick the CPU Cabinet near my legs, my PC stops responding. Nothing helps and i have to reboot by powering off/on.

Any idea why this happens and what could be done to avoid it?

change the location of cabby,at least not near legs
kicking must have given a shake to inside components which lead to a freeze

I hope u don't kick while in sleep :lol:

So is this a normal thing?. I was not clear i think. Even sometimes a nudge leads to a freeze. This never happens with laptops though.

Keep it on your table as less dust accumulates and so can clean your PC once in every 3 months and keep in mind that good cable management also keeps your cabinet cool along with some good 120mm fans for intake and exhaust as well.

happened with me only once but the cause can be anything .. so better avoid such things. Make sure you have mounted the motherboard firmly with enough screws and standoffs with the cabinet.

why would you even accidentally kick your beloved computer which has served whenever you needed the most :(

just kidding :D ...change the location of the cabinet and check if any of the components are not fitted properly

My guess is the RAM modules. They may not be fit tightly. And try not to kick/move your system while in use. Keep the cabinet on the table, so you would have more leg room also :D

Seriously srkmish!
You kick your PC, and you expect your PC to behave normally? If I were a PC, I would evolve myself to grow a pair of legs to kick you back.

Or just let you starve for Internet, by corrupting your router settings each time you configure it. :(

lol funniest thread ever. I kicked my pc once the same way, still worked okay, got a huge dent on the side panel.

But seriously though. just eiter don't kick it or open it up and make sure all wires are connected properly

I hope you don't do this with your Laptop. It'll be no match for your kick-boxing skills.
On A serious Note : Don't kick it too much , chances for short-circuit is very likely.

Just install Antikickware 2013, it will take care of your PC from switching off, whenever an accidental kick is registered/

Thanks . This was the best solution. Now i can kick my PC all day without worrying about freezing.In fact, me and my friends are having a kicking competition now where we beat the hell out of my PC and whoever gets to freeze it first wins :D .

I have changed the CPU position for now. If this reoccurs, maybe ill check the wires(too lazy to do this currently)
