  1. Hi -

    My sister has a desktop that is restarting spontaneously soon after she turns it on. It goes from seemingly to run normally, to just restarting.

    Looking at the error console, there is this mini-dump... sorry, not sure what to use to decode where the error might be:

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: System Error

    0xD1 errors are caused by bad device drivers, Faulty or Mismatched RAM or a damaged pagefile. Could you post the Minidump as a attachment in your next post so i could see what driver maybe causing the problem.

    You could start by ruling RAM out.
    Download the pre-built version of Memtest86 (Link Below) and burn it onto a CD using ISO Recorder (Link Below) after this boot off the CD and start the test going and let it run for 3-5 hours (Minimum of 7 Passes) or Overnight which is best.
