TRY THESE

1--The first thing to do is to stop reboot on error. To do this do the following;
Right-click My Computer and click on Properties.

Click the Advanced tab.

Click the 'Settings' Button in the 'Startup and Recovery' section.

Under the 'System failure' section uncheck 'Automatically restart' and check 'Write an event to the system log' box.

The next time the system fails have a look in the Event log for any problems to pinpoint the cause.

N.B. If you see a box that mentions that the system will close down and reboot because of a system or RPC error, or similar wording, you probably have the blaster infection, check with any AV site for instructions on removal and to protect from future infections.

2--Make sure all your drivers are up to date. Especially your chipset and video drivers.

Another cause for random reboots is that the computers processor is getting too hot. To check this, enter the computers bios during boot (usually by pressing Delete, F1 or F10 when the computer just starts) and there will be an option about the computers temperature (often under "PC Health").

This should show you the current temperature of the computer and the emergency shutdown temperature. The emergency shutdown temperature is a safeguard for when your computer gets too hot it will shut itself down to prevent damage.

You can either raise the shutdown temperature or switch it off completely, however be warned that you may damage your computer (or the clients) if the computer gets too hot. If the temperature was causing the reboots then you should consider getting better cooling for the computer such as more powerful CPU fans and more case fans.


__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

When a reboot occurs from within Windows XP, your computer will totally restart without telling you what caused it. This is the default behavior when Windows XP encounters a system failure.

To see what the error was you can change the default behavior by right clicking on "My Computer" and choosing "Properties". Goto the "Advanced" Tab and under "Startup and Recovery" press the "Settings" button.

Under the "System Failure" box there will be a checkbox saying "Automatically Restart". Untick this box and click Ok.

Next time the system has a failure it will show the Windows error blue screen (also known as BSOD, Blue Screen of Death) and it will have an error code, grab a piece of paper and write this code down.

It may look something like this: Stop 0x0000000A or IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
