Hi there, 
 

Post added in to correct place

Every now and then my computer restarts its self and then whilst it goes through the bios this error appears see attachment.
Anyone knows what it means and how It can be fixed. I have been thinking its the PSU or RAM on he computer. 

The computer has also had a 0cx000021a  and Critical Process Died blue  screen in the pass also. 

Looking at the event viewer log  there  is an DistributedCOM 10016 error  at the time it happened. 


Any ideas what it could be?

Either you have a bad bios or a hard drive intermittent fault. I would suggest backing up your data, then test the hard drive. If you're lucky, it might be a loose hard drive cable.

If the BIOS cannot see a hard drive, it tries to boot from another source, in this case, your network card.

Such is the way with intermittent faults. So what do you think it might be?

Since it is random  I was thinking it could of been the affect of a virus but I highly doubt it. Its gotta be something hardware related or with your software I would think. Im not a expert Im just a user.

I agree with Adam. Back up your hard drive a.s.a.p. This is a tell-tale sign that your HDD is on the outs but also could be a faulty cable or even a faulty connector on the motherboard. I would download a free HDD health check software (HD Tue is a good one) and go from there.
