Rebooting problems

  1. Hey, I am new to this site. I am running Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional. Sometimes when I use the X in the upper right hand corner of a window to exit out of that window, it causes my computer to reboot. It does not happen all of the time, and it does not seem to matter what window I am closing, but it happens 3 or 4 times a day recently and it is getting old!! Any ideas??

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    If you right click my computer and select properties, then the advanced tab, then under startup and recovery click settings and uncheck the box that says automatically restart, also set the write debugging information to none.

    Click ok apply ok and reboot your computer.

    Now instead of your computer automatically rebooting you should receive an error message telling you what caused the problem.

    Pay particular attention to any drivers identified in the stop message.

    Regards Howard
