Computer reboots randomly, approximately every few hours, and then boots normally with nothing other than an System Recovery Windows error prompt stating I can submit the error (or disregard it)
Upon submitting the error report, I received the following:
"Error caused by a device driver
Thank you for sending an error report to Microsoft.

Information about this error
You received this message because a device driver installed on your computer caused the Windows operating system to stop unexpectedly. This type of error is referred to as a "stop error." A stop error requires you to restart your computer.
We have analyzed your error report and at this time are unable to determine the exact cause of the error. However, Microsoft will continue to analyze this error report to try to determine the specific cause of the error. If we are able to find the cause and correct it, and you encounter the same problem, you will receive an updated response that includes instructions for resolving the problem. "
Also ---> In my Device Manager, the following has an exclaimation point: SATALink Drive Accelerator. When I click on Properties for this driver, it states "This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed. (Code 24) Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device." (although troubleshooting doesn't work)
PLUS ---> I see "ROOT\LEGACY_SIFILTER\0000" listed in the Details tab.
Finally, I do not receive any BLUE SCREEN errors
I am unable to locate any information on the SATALink error or the rebooting problem, any help would be greatly appreciated!!
