  1. Someone help, please...

    My winxp PRO is rebooting randomly (once a day usualy). I´ve already run Memtest and no errors ocurred. I tried to analyse the minidump files (atached - need to rename to .dmp) with windbg, but i couldn´t extract any useful information.

    Any help will be usefull. Thanks.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    One minidump is not enough to determine the culprit.

    Zip 5 or 6 of your latest minidumps together and attach them here.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Your problem is caused by CTSYN.SYS. Part of your soundblaster drivers.

    Uninstall and reinstall your soundcard drivers, also check for any updated drivers.

    Regards Howard :)
