My comp (spec below) is randomly restarting, it has happened 4 times now over the last 2 weeks!

What happens.

The comp slows down, then suddenly the blue screan apears and the computer shuts down. When i boot it up again it says that windows restarted becasue of a fatal error, send error report.

If i send it it returns a webpage about harddrive not responding for a period of time.

Thats as much as i know!

Any help would be fatastic!


PS, there is no pattern to it, sometime it will last absolutly hours, without crashing, then sometmes10mins, usually once i restart it does not do it aint at all!

an error message(bsod) tells one what the error is, whereas auto reboot doesn't,
therefore it's best to turn off auto reboot

turn off auto reboot:

runbox command
- press keyboard buttons: winkey + r button
- paste this in slot: sysdm.cpl @0,3
- press: enter
- find in blue: startup and recovery
( just above the line: system startup, system failure, and debugging infomation)
- click button: settings
- unclick box: automatically restart

once done
the error message can be understood here
