I have been experiencing a problem with my computer recently where it will re-start automatically at various points. Sometimes at start-up, sometimes when switching users, and sometimes after the computer has been running for a while.

when I bought my computer it never came with a system cd. Is there a way to repair the system errors without this?

Download Recovery Console, Bootable ISO - http://www.webtree.ca/windowsxp/repair_xp.htm

After you get the .iso file, you have to burn it to CD, using an application known as an .iso-burning application, such as Active@ ISO Burner - http://www.ntfs.com/iso_burner_free.htm

The resulting CD will be bootable and can be run after changing the BIOS boot options.
