  1. Hi,
    I am in serious need of PC help. My computer keeps rebooting. I have tried everything I can think of. It runs fine in 'safe mode with networking'. I went into msconfig and disabled all programs and no change. I tried to run the XP recovory console and I get "can not find a place for a swap file." Any advise would be great. Thanks.

    I am running XP pro,
    It has 2HD's 20GB/160GB,
    1G RAM,
    AMD Sempron 1.6GHz,
    GeForce MX4000 128MB DDR AGP.

    Your PC is "Blue-Screening" and by default, Win XP restarts. Try the following and note the error message:

    Goto CONTROL PANEL - SYSTEM - select the ADVANCE tab - under "Start-up and recovery" select SETTINGS - clear the AUTOMATICALLY RESTART checkbox.

    Next time your PC wants to restart you should be prompted with a BSOD. note the error message string and whether it relates to a particular file.

    Let us know how you go :grinthumb
