    I have amd +1700,Asus a7s 333, 256 ddr, Eagle GeForce 440...
    Computer sometimes restart, even if I don't do anything.
    I had Win 2000 Professional, and I chaged it to XP, but the problem is still here. Also I had problems to install XP (8 times I had to start installation over and over again).

    Hi and welcome.

    I'd check to see how hot the cpu is running.......does the case feel warm to the touch? Do you have any additional case fans installed?

    How hot does it have to be.
    In SiSoft Sandra it shows 36.

    I don't use SiSoft and have found some of those programs to be misleading....if you can check in the bios setup for cpu info/and or PC Health info, that would be more accurate.

    If it is running at 36, that should not be an issue. My next guess would be ram....how many sticks do you have? If more than one, pull each and try one at a time to see if the same thing happens.

    I have only one stick, but I will take another stick from another comp to try memory. If this solve the problem I'll let you know.
    Thanx

    It's an inbuilt default XP behaviour


    When you are running Windows XP, you may have noticed that every so often (rarely) that Windows reboots without you asking it to. This tends to be caused by a Blue Screen error. If you want to see what this error is, you will have to check the error log list because Windows reboots too quickly for you to read what happened. Well with this tip you can disable the Auto-Reboot so you can finally read, and see the blue screen error.

    Go to Start -> Control Panel -> System
    Go to Advanced
    Under the Startup and Recovery section, click Settings...
    Under System Failure un-check "Automatically restart"
