The first thing to do is to stop the automatic restarts, when they have been disabled you will get a error message rather than a restart. Please post back here with exactly what the error message is.

Start> right click on My Computer> Properties> Advanced.

Under Startup and Recovery click on Settings, under System Failure remove the check in the box for Automatically Restart.

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

hi. this could be a range of problems, firstly as the second post said, diable auto shut down and reboots. when next starting up, it will display a Blue screen of death, this will be when the pc usually reboots due to a system failure. copy the whole of the top few lines such as the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

then near the bottom where it says a few stop codes eg, "Stop 0x00005465767" or something like that. copy them and post on this forum aswell as searching for the stop codes on the net. when you have a error in the system logger, double click it and view more options of it, it will display a log of what happened. look for the 'advaced info' of it or what it says, not the Bytes part because none of us will understand it. get the info and post on here asap. we wil lthen be able to identify the problem and come up with a solution.

Have you installed any new hardware recently? Or perhaps bumped you computer and some how nudged a currently installed pci device? In my experience the blue screen on XP is hardware related and it has happend for me after installing unsupported hardware or one time when I was plugging in my monitor cable and trying to wiggle it in, I guess my card was loose and it caused a BSOD.

Hey guys... once the restart has been stopped the stop error will appear and we will have something concrete to work with. Why don't we hold off with the speculation until then. :thumbsup:
