I have a 14 month old emachine T5026 with an intel pentium 4 chip. A month ago it started rebooting so that I wasn't able to do anything with it. Took it in to my favorite repair shop. At first they thought it was a bad hard drive, then decided it was the memory. After a week in the shop and almost $300, I got the machine home and it rebooted twice in a short period of time. Took it back to repair and they let it run overnight with no problems.
I've had it running for a couple of weeks now and the system is useable, but it reboots 4-5 times per 24 hour period whether it is in use or not. (I don't turn it off.)
I've been checking the Dr Watson file and it first gave the following error even though I wasn't running IE:
Application exception occurred:
App: C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe (pid=1924)
When: 3/23/2006 @ 20:22:29.812
Exception number: c0000005 (access violation)
After I installed ColdFusion, all the error message have been about swoc.exe or swagent.exe.
App: C:\CFusionMX\db\slserver52\bin\swsoc.exe (pid=532)
When: 3/25/2006 @ 14:12:41.187
App: C:\CFusionMX\db\slserver52\bin\swagent.exe (pid=504)
When: 3/25/2006 @ 14:12:41.765
When I look at services, it says both these services are stopped. I still get those same error messages after I uninstall ColdFusion.
Makes no sense to me. My repair person says these intermittent errors are difficult to resolve.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
