  1. I've no idea what's wrong with this thing. The sound kind of stutters, then the system reboots. Not a crash to desktop, it reboots totally. Getting annoying! I can be in an app for a couple hours before it happens, or 30 minutes, or 5 minutes. Attached is a minidump file, if anyone knows how to read it...

    Your problem is probably caused by ATI display drivers (as one of your minidumps specifically points at this). Please uninstall your currently installed Catalyst drivers, then reboot your system. Remove any traced of left over files of this driver with either Driver Sweeper or Driver Cleaner Pro (both have free versions available).

    Then reboot, download latest WHQL drivers from AMD/ATI site (i.e. version 10.5) and install them. Goodluck and let us know if you need further assistance. Regards
