    My computer restarts unexpectedly after about 20 minutes on it. During restart a box comes up and it says "this computer had an IP adress conflict with another computer on the network".

    Then I get an error report that says it encountered a serious error that it could not recover from, thus it had to restart. What should I do? Thanks so much in advance!!

    Somebody may be on your ip to surf pron or so. Just tell your administrator about it.

    That you very much for you reply. I'm my own administrator... it's a LAN at my house, not at work.

    This error is stating that your IP is the same as another IP.

    Go to each computer and find out the IP address.

    Run / Winipcfg
    Or
    Run / CMD / ipconfig

    Depending on your OS.
    Your looking for the IP addresses, they should all be different, but you will find that yours and one other have the same.
    (Ex 192.168.0.100 or 192.168.1.101, or 192.168.0.XXX, XXX = 2-254)

    Enter network properties / TCP/IP and adjust the last octet to any thing different (2-254), but make sure it does not match any other system.
