PC BSODs and auto restarts randomly

  1. Hi guys, I've built this PC nearly 5 months ago, and have been having this problem. It's driving me crazy!

    Every now and then, the computer just randomly restarts. No BSODs, nothing. Just turns off, then back on again.

    And just recently, I have been getting a lot of BSODs. It also happens randomly, sometimes when the PC starts up, or maybe after a few hours into a game. The error code varies, which confuses me.

    Here are a few of those minidumps. The rar I couldn't fit all the dumps onto 1 zip file, so I had to upload one separately.

    This is with a new, fresh install of Windows XP 32 bit. This random restarts and BSODs have also happened with Vista 64 bit.

    My PC has just crashed after my last posting. I tried everything to get it to crash, but nothing did it!

    I was watching an episode of The Simpsons on my computer when the crashed happened.

    The BSOD was too fast for me to get all the info down, but I managed to get one important detail:

    It was an IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error, with an error code of 0x000000A.

    I got this off the event viewer:

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: Application Hang
    Event Category: (101)
    Event ID: 1002

    What does this mean? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    PS - Also, I have just noticed the time was out. The crash happened at 5.30am. Even though there was a BSOD, there was no error log in the System Event viewer.

    Hello SilverBlade86, mini dump #01 is caused by your directX Driver dxg.sys, mini dump #02 is ntoskrnl.exe, no idea to what that might be, sorry, and #03 and #04 were caused by your Nvata.sys, Nvidia IDE driver, you'll want to update that!

    so, hope you get to gaming again, BTW what game were you playing?

    PS, you might want to check this site out for the ntoskrnl.exe problem:


    i have had that same problem with NFSC and GTA SA, but i fixed it!

    Ahh, thank you very much. That certainly helps quite a bit, I will research and update the drivers and see what happens.

    I usually play DoTA, a custom Warcraft 3 map. I also play Team Fortress 2 and Day of Defeat.
