  1. Hey all, my computer has windows XP and keeps restarting at certain points of operation. sometimes while runing for 30min sometimes just when loggin in and when I look in the error log in the event viewer the errors I get are:


    I know some problems can be overheating of power supply or software, but I get a sytem restart, which happens with no warning or error given. In the startup and recovery I unchecked the box that says to restart if there is a system faliure. It is supposed to give me the error, but it doesn't, it still restarts. any suggestions?

    A start off for you would be to check the RAM by running Memtest86.

    Memtest86 Instructions
    Download the pre-built version of Memtest86 (Link Below) and burn it onto a CD using ISO Recorder (Link Below) other ISO burning software will work as well (E.g. Nero). 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.
