For starters I would set it to not reboot: control panel>system>advanced>startup and recovery. Uncheck 'reboot' and check 'write an event to system log'. I would check event viewer to see if there are any messages as to why it rebooted. Now when it reboots it will blue screen and ther should be a message on the screen. Post the message.

Uncheck auto restart. right click 'my computer', click manage, expand event viewer. Look for error messages in 'system'. I would look in application also.

The error in Event Viewer that I WAS[not anymore] getting, was::
"The PfModNT service failed to start due to the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified. "
So I looked that up on Google and found a person with the same problem and did step by step of what the person told them to do.

They first told them to run "regedit" and delete PfModNT but I ran it and there was no PfModNT. So I let the computer restart on its own then went back to Event Viewer and there was no error.

Argh.

I need help desperatly.

Hi,

I would start to look at hardware, try running memtest86 you can get it here for free.

List your temps and voltages in bios

List your system specs or model name and number
