I swear if it's not one thing it's another with this system! I'm still trying to finish finding all the drivers to update my system, but now I'm getting an error that Says it's a Dr Watson Re-boot error. It states it can not finish post mortem due to... something something. UGH.

I know it's not much information to go on, I'll write it down next time it comes up, but I'm totally baffled by this. Has anyone else heard of it before & know what it is? I don't have a clue how to stop it coming up.

The POST is Power On Self Test which is the first thing that happens when you start you computer, it looks at all of the important components of your computer to make sure that every thing is in order before continuing to start the OS. The next time this happens please copy down what it says or make a screen shot and post it back here. You can also go into the control panel and Event viewer to see what errors are showing up at these times.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

FWIW...I've never seen an error reported by Dr. Watson that seemed significant.

I rely more on error reporting in Event Viewer and consider it very unusual when I get a Dr. Watson error notification.
