Frequent Sudden Reboots

  1. Hi,

    I've just done a fresh install of win XP and it's fully updated with SP2. Very early on it started randomly rebooting. I have tried a 'clean boot', hijackthis log analyser, full virus scan and checked PSU voltages (12V was as low as 11.4V at one point but it's a 500W supply and I haven't installed any new hardware for a while). Microsoft OCA reports a stop error and occasionally says its due to the video, but I've tried running with the card disabled and its no better. I'll attach some minidumps.

    Many thanks for any advice,

    Marc

    Four of the dumps are caused by viaraid.sys - SATA driver. Try updating the driver.

    BugCheck 10000050, {f77b7000, 0, f77b6fff, 0}
    Probably caused by : viaraid.sys ( viaraid+ae88 )
