Posted: 01-19-2009, 02:58 PM
This has happend, seems over the last month.
No new hardware, no new software.
No viruses or grayware.
Happened to be watching the screen
and it just reset, couldn't read the screen
before it reset.
Have run chkdsk, scanned for viruses,
suugestions?
thanks bruce

Please provide specific details. Are you saying that the PC starts to boot,
you get a blue screen, the PC reboots and the cycle starts over again? Is
there any error message and, if so, what is it verbatim? Have you tried
booting in safe mode? If it will boot in safe mode: How to perform
advanced clean-boot troubleshooting in Windows XP

Right click on My Computer
Select Properties
Select Advanced tab
Under Shutdown and Recovery select Settings
Under System failure, uncheck Automaticly restart

Now you should be able to get the error code

hi
No it is intermittent. Sometimes it will go a few weeks. The other day, I
just happen to see the blue screen pop up, then it restarts, and is ok.
At least for awhile, one of those that says Windows has shutdown to protect
it, can't remember the exact one.
I wasn't doing anything in particualar, because I was in the other room.
Is not their someplace I can check to see the listing where it might show
why it shut down. I never can seem to find it when I want too.

Right click "My Computer" go to "properties" view the "advanced" tab. Under
System failure box, uncheck "automatic restart, then click "ok" Computer will
now halt on the blue screen so you can write down the stop errors. Use Google
to find solutions.
