    For the past few weeks, my computer has automatically rebooted, restarting with a Serious Error message. I have installed all new drivers available and run Nortons programs, including Antivirus. I still get this problem on an intermittant basis. Help! :confused:

    The Error says "Your computer has experienced a serious error, etc. (i don't know the exact wording, but will write it down the next time it happens). I am using Windows XP Home, have 512 MB memory, with an 80GB HD. I scan regularly with Adaware and SpyBot.

    No I do not have CD Creator 5.0. I downloaded new Video Drivers a couple of days ago, in fact I downloaded all new drivers that Microsoft Update found were needed. I still have the problem.

    Do you mean you've installed the patch and it didn't help?

    If so, go to C:\Windows> Minidump. Open the folder and delete all files in it.

    Then press Winkey + Pause/Break (System Properties)> Advanced. Performance - Settings> Advanced. Virtual memory> change. Write down the Initial size and Maximum size in MB. Then select No Pagefile. Click 'Set'. OK out. Reboot.

    Repeat the process and this time type in back the values you had copied down. Click 'Set'. OK out. Reboot.

    I didn't install the patch, because it sounded like the patch was for when you get the message on regular reboot. And since I get it when the computer automatically reboots (whether I'm in Windows or whether I'm on the desktop) I wasn't sure if the patch fix was for me. Please clarify.

    Since I didn't get a reply from my last post, I installed the patch. Since that time my computer has not shut down and rebooted and the last time it was booted after the installation, the message was not there. Hopefully the problem is solved. If it happens again, I will send more info.

    Thanks for all the help!
