I was hoping I might be able to get some advice with a problem I've been having recently.
Lately, my computer has been restarting on its own - maybe once or twice a day so far. After disabling auto-restart, I received the following blue screen error:
STOP: 0X40000080 (0X8ACC2130, 0X8A3B75D0, 0XBA4D7B80, 0X00000001)
So far the problem has been occurring while surfing the web (using both Firefox and Chrome), though that fact my be inconsequential since that is what I spend the most time doing on my computer. I am using Windows XP on a system built from scratch (it was built by a professional, not myself). The computer is almost a year old.
I have run virus scans with AVG Free and SDFix, checked operating temperatures with SpeedFan, run a memory diagnostic with Memtest86, and tried updating my video card drivers (I haven't installed any new hardware since the computer was built, so not sure if I would need to check any other drivers or anything). None of these efforts have pointed to what the problem could be.
Any thoughts on what I should try next? Please let me know if I should provide any more information. Thanks for the help!
