So far I had my iTunes database corrupted because my computer restarted when it was processing a file, and then I had to go manually find 2000 songs again and reorder it :whistling:

I want to do burn a DVD pretty soon and I dont want the computer restarting when it happens. Computer restarts when I'm surfing the web or well generally anything. It's quite annoying, and after it restarts it says, microsoft windows has recovered from a serious error.

OS: Windows XP Home SP2
