    Okay hopefully I can explain this problem clearly. :) I installed windows 2000 professional...wow nice operating system so I thought. Within a few days my computer was rebooting on its own. Well at first I thought my roomies were messing with my computer....grrrrrrrrrrr...but alas that wasn't the case. This continued until one day while I was on aol my screen suddenly went blue and quickly rebooted. Now the error message was so fast I could barely read what it said but I did catch something about dumping memory files and watched with horror as the countdown went to 100 and rebooted. Oh boy I thought, this can't be good. Now when I get on my computer in the mornings I can always tell when it has rebooted itself...which seems to be a daily activity. Ummmm HELPPPPPP!!!

    Run DRWATSON to have it capture more details and post what it reports. It will run in background until needed so start it as soon as you can. Good hunting and good luck.
