Hi,


My computer restarts randomly every time for unknown reason. When it's going to restart, the computer freezes for about 5 seconds.

I have:

Windows XP Pro SP2
AMD Athlon 64 3800+ 2.4Ghz
ASUS A8R-MVP
1024 MB (PC3200 DDR SDRAM) OCZ
ATI Radeon X1800 XL 256MB
500Watt SilverStone PSU
SAMSUNG SP1213 (120GB, 7200 RPM, SATA)

Please help because this is really getting annoying and school is about to start soon which means word doc and then random restarts :(


Thanks in advance :)

Disable automatic restarts on error, and you *might* get a blue screen lockup with a meaningful error message that you should write down carefully and post back here.

Control Panel - System - Advanced - Startup and recovery/Settings - uncheck "Automatically restart"

But if it is a hardware issue (power supply etc) then that may not work.
