My desktop restarts itself at random times. It can go a few days without doing it and then do it three, four times a day. Other times it'll just freeze and not do anything unless someone unplugs it. And it's really slow about starting up afterwards. My parents use that one, so I've no idea what all is on it.

Hi Rapidfrog,

Have you looked in your system's Event Logs for an indication of what type of errors you are getting?

Another thing to check is your CPU and case temperatures.

~Edit~ Download SpeedFan to check your temps.
SpeedFan is a freeware program that monitors voltages, fan speeds and temperatures in computers with hardware monitor chips. It can even access S.M.A.R.T. info for those hard disks that support this feature.

Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
