    I dunno y my hp computer keeps on restarting but on the first day i bought it, it restarted automatically and then it said WINDOWS HAS RECOVERD FROM A SERIOUS ERROR and it just keeps on restarting here and there. There is no pattern. I have AMD antholon 2600+. 80g hardrive 1 cd burner and dvd rom and nvidia 64mb gforce card. My computer is by Hewlett Packard. And i have windows Home editionl. I am just going to check for any viruses of spyware or anything of that sort. I dont think i have any tho

    HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED GREATLY

    turn off the auto reboot so the bsod tells you what is happening and post what it says.
    if this is a new comp.get in touch with where you bought it being as it started on day 1
    list the complete system specs it makes it eaier to help you
    it could be a number of things
    ram
    video drivers
    p/supply
    software

    Sounds like a bad power supply to me. AMD procs. tend to be very powerhungry (but awesome) and i have had this problem with several machines. If you cant figure it out on the software side, i would try to go out and pick up a QUALITY power supply (antech).

    I think this is bs. I wouldn't even troubleshoot the problem. I would bring it back to where ever you bought it from. They should have at least some kind of warranty on it. If I bought a new computer and spent some big $$ for it and started it up for the first time and got an error I would be irate. Just my 2 cents.

    Heh, yeah seems HP is getting it. I bought mine back in 2-03 and the first month went fine no biggie. Then crash after crash, come to find out the hard drive was bad. But unless you return it within a few days the place you bought it from wont take it.
    To make a long story short i had to send my NEW comp across the country for 13 days to replace a 10 minute part.
