Hi guys.
For no obvious reason my PC reboots. It can be on for hours, either idle or busy.
It's up todate with all updates.
I don't know where to start !!

I have'nt used TSG's SysInfo as I'm not on my own PC.

goto
control panel>
system>

for XP - advanced tab>
for Vista/windows 7 - advanced system settings > - link on left hand side

startup and recovery - settings>
under the title - system failure
untick - automatically restart

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;320299

now when it crashes - it willnot restart and the blue screen should stay on the screen
post the info on the screen
it will give the errorcodes and a filename, if caused by a driver.

Thanks etaf. I'll give it a go and post back any results.
If not for me, perhaps for someone reading later.

I gave the suggestion a go but my PC is still rebooting. It may be my processor being too hot. Can this be checked.

Yup. Check out SIW here. In the sensor section there are temp measurements.
