Dell Inspiron E1705 running MCE 2005 w/SP3, AVG, Anti-Vir, Wdws Defender.

Every day at 9:43am MT, my laptop restarts. No error message, no Blue Screen.

Checked Event log:

'The NICCONFIGSVC service entered the stopped state.'

I have had the Auto restart box unchecked, as recommended, after searching about 'restarts'


Reasons?

TIA,

Hi Monkey 108, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

Look in the Event Viewer at the times that this occurring and see what errors are showing up.

Start> right click on My Computer> Manage> Event Viewer.

On the right side of the page you will see the options Applications, Security, and Systems, double click on Systems. There are eight columns on this page, the three that you will want are Type, Date, Time, and Event.

The errors will appear in the Type column, they are red dots with a white X inside of them.

Warnings will appear as a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark inside.

When you see an error, double click on it and see what the description is.

Please post the error code/s found in the Event column and the descriptions back in this topic.

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

Nice to be here. Thanks for your help.

Restart happened again @ 9:43am. Checked Event Viewer, but there is no error listed for that time.

Just information:

'The NICCONFIGSVC service entered the stopped state.'

as the first event. Then other 'stopped' events

Error message 2 min. later during startup:

'The mrtRate service failed to start due to the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified.'

That's all I can find right now.

On the right side of the page you will see the options Applications, Security, and Systems, double click on Systems. Did you choose System as instructed?

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