The title says it pretty much

even if i wasnt playing anything if i press the pedals the wheel starts calibrating, i tried playing with it (City Car Driving, Assetto Corsa), and its so annoying i cant even drive for a while without the G920 restarting

i tried almost every Software solution that i started to think its a Hardware problem, i can provide videos if needed

Update your post to include full system hardware specs and OS information.

PSU: make, model, wattage, age, condition?

Disk drive(s): make, model, capacity, how full?

= = = =

New G920? Where purchased?

If possible try the steering wheel on another known working computer.

Try another known working steering wheel on your computer.

Determine if the restart problem follows the G920 or stays with your computer.

What software solutions did you try?

I figured the problem its nothing near the PC its all about the pedals, idk what exactly in the pedals but it just restarts the steering wheel

G920 i got it from my cousin he had it for 3 years and it was just sitting around so i took it, Nope restarting doesnt solve the problem because its hardware, i tried Unistalling G-Hub(installing older version, just reinstalling), i tried calibrating the wheel, i tried different games with the same Steering wheel

Anyway im gonna try a different pedal and i will keep you updated, for now give me possible causes for this problem?

Three + years old - correct? Likely a history of heavy use.....

This racing wheel?

Possible causes:

My thought is that there is bad connection or worn wire somewhere in the G920 pedals.

When the G920's pedals are pressed doing so causes a short circuit and the computer crashes/restart.

Could be a combination of pedal presses and/or perhaps other steering wheel related actions.

A multi-meter and some careful, methodical testing while the G920 is not plugged into anything might discover where the short circuit may be.

I did find a schematic but I am not sure that the schematic is sufficient for such troubleshooting.

After you try different pedals be sure to post the results.

News: the problem isnt from the pedals i think it either from my PC or the Steering wheel(G920), Now im gonna test it on other PC and see if it works

So apparently here what it was, my LED switch was causing a short circuit(i think) because when i turned it off, replugged the G920(usb + power adapters) it worked fine
