    Not sure if it's the same in ME or not (and doing it from memory in addition!) but you can check for a conflict by going to Start>Run and typing msinfo32. Choose Hardware and then IRQs. Edit, Copy and then paste them here.

    Could also be memory related. How many sticks do you have in?
    Also possibly overheating.
    Can you give us some more specs?

    You probably have some sort of hardware monitor in the bios setup that will give you the cpu and system temp, if that seems OK, I would agree that memory is a likely suspect. Can you connect the reboots with any particular program or combination of programs? I would also check the motherboard manufacturer and video card manufacturer for any known conflicts. A less likely cause could be a bad or insufficient power supply.
