2.8Gigs Pent, recently upgraded to 1.5GB RAM.
SATA 140GB hard drive.
After using Avast! for awhile, my computer just started to have these random reboots.. OUT OF NO WHERE, especially when I'm trying to transfer files occasionally. Seems of the chances of rebooting decrease as I unplug my internet connection.
I've recently REINSTALLED windows XP Home without using HP recovery. Yet I still see the HP Logo when I start the computer... is this because i didn't format the drive enough? Or is it like stuck on the BIOs??
I did the format during the Windows XP install, to both partitions (the recovery, and regular C:\) Yet i've experienced a few reboots again even after the install.
My question is, should I go do a format on the hard drive again? Or what else could be doing this to my computer that would lead to reboots? Is this a virus or a hardware issue?
Also I can't seem to upgrade my USB ports to 2.0 as they used to, it seems they stuck on 1.1USB, even though they are capable (and came as 2.0).
thanks guys, fast response would be really appreciated!!
