OS = XP pro MB = MSI K8N neo4 The system restarts when you attempt to boot normal, safe mode (w/ net, cmd prompt), and last known good configuration. The systems boots normally when you select disable restart on system failure. So I then go to look for a minidump there is none I checked the setting it is set to generate a small mini dump = %systemroot%/minidump just like it is supposed to. I then went to the event log to see if something is logged in there. There nothing that would cause a restart the only thing logged is normal notifications no errors. I ran a bitdefenders online virus scan with no infections I will be running housecall and probably another online scan or two in order to rule that out. What else could point me in the right direction I am kinda lost?
