Im having some weird restarts recently. When I want to copy a large file ( 700 MB ) from one HDD to another my Pc restarts after a time and I cant copy it, no matter how much I try. I have 2 HDD in my PC, one is connected to the Primary IDE channel and the second on the Seconadry IDE channel, both HDD's are MASTER. I turned off automatic restart on System failure to see what is causing the problem and for me is NPFS.SYS file whats seems to be causing the problem. Please help me, much appreciate your efforts. :)

I would suspect a faulty HDD or faulty RAM.

The file is a Named Pipe File System file transfer driver (which aligns with your problem) and which would lead me to my intial guess of RAM or HDD.

The HDD maker should have a diagnostic utility on their website and a free program Memtest should check the memory http://www.memtest86.com/

Everything seems to be OK, ive tested both HDD an RAM's aswell. Dont think is a HDD or RAM problem because the PC restarts after a specific MB of trasnfer, bertween 300-400 MB of continuing trasnfer the PC restarts. IF i transfer litte files lets say 50 MB the PC only restarts if the total of MB trasnfered reaches or its closly to 300-400 MB as I meantioned above. Seams like a buffer overflow or something like that. Buffer or Cache memory is filled the PC restarts, im totally comfused.

I se ein your first post something about NPFS. Did you mean NTFS?

Could you go into the properties on the hard drive thru My Computer and post the properties window?
