This problem has been around on my computer for quite a while, as such I've learned to live with it, but now it's really starting to get on my nerves. I tried searching the forums for any sign of people suffering from automatic restarts but to no avail.

So here's what's going on:

Whenever I run games on my computer (ones that alter the resolution [maybe it's linked?]) they run for a few minutes before a quick flash of BSOD pops up and then the computer resets on it's own. I tried cleaning up my computer with AdAware and my Symantec Anti-Virus client and they also cause this same error. From what little information I can gather, I was at one point or still am infected by a virus called "Trojan ByteVerify" which is probably responsible for all this. I had quarantined the files for a while but then decided it would be better to delete them.

After these automatic resets my computer generally runs stable for a while (other times it just keeps resetting itself), however if I try to run a game or anything else again it'll either hang or reset in a far less amount of time. At this point I find it nessecary to turn the computer off entirely before doing anything with it again. Furthermore, the computer occasionally hangs while loading Windows and requires a reset. I've tried Error Reporting and I'm brought to this page: http://oca.microsoft.com/en/response.aspx?...f9a50315&SID=10 Since I assumed that there was a problem with my video card I went ahead and updated the drives on it and made sure all my Windows drivers were up to date. Still no luck.

It you need more info, I'll do what I can.

ps: Sadly I cannot post the contents of the Blue Screen report because it's only there for a few milleseconds before the computer resets. Though the other day I got one while shutting down my computer and it read:

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

0x0000000a 0x0000001c 0x00000002 0x00000000 0x804e844f

I don't know if it's related.

Thanks you for any help you can provide.

It sounds to me like your computer may be overheating. Try opening the case and clear out any dust that may be residing in there. I would also check to make sure that the fans are running.

I was at one point or still am infected by a virus called "Trojan ByteVerify" which is probably responsible for all this.

This is how to remove the Trojan ByteVerify discrepancies:

:thumbsup: Click Start | Settings | Control Panel
Click the Java Plugin Icon
Click the Cache tab
Click the Clear button and click OK to confirm
Note: Please repeat this procedure for each "Java Plugin" button in your Control Panel.

:flowers: Control Panel > Java > General tab
Temporary Internet Files > Delete Files
Checkmark all 3 options and click OK.

I opened up the case and took a household vaccum to it, pulled out my video cardand cleaned it by hand. I took off the fans and cleaned underneath them and after putting it back together and turning it on I found that one of my fans was not working properly, it would click but never start spinning. I grabbed a pencap and gave it a little encouragement spin and it took off again. Ever since the computer has been running like a dream, thanks a lot guys!
