For the past two weeks I've been getting this automatic reboot :whistling:

Posted Image

I haven't installed anything new recently, so it's hard for me to think that is the cause (I don't remember anything knew going on in the recent timebefore this started happening!)

If there's anyway someone could help me find and beat this problem I would really really appreciate it!

hi,

Go to START-->RUN and type devmgmt.msc and click OK. In the new window that appears, post any items in your reply that have a yellow ? or ! next to them.

cheers...xxx1

Nothing in that window had a yellow ? or ! near it. The only thing with any symbol other than normal is the 802.11b card, which I have disabled since I got the computer....

More information for you.

Usually indicates a USB driver problem. Makes sure, though, that you have the latest Windows service pack installed.

microsoft article kb331988 may give you some answers.

Do you have a USB hard drive constantly hooked up and running on the computer?

Thank you for that link to that article, I'm checking that out!

I never have anything plugged into my USB port! The only thing I can think of that's EVER plugged in ismy internet card (I have my internet through my wireless provider, so I have a little card that I plug in! Since I am never at home, constantly traveling.)

All of my hardware is what came with the computer (other than that internet card) But I will definately check into the drivers and be sure that they are updated. I do have all the Windows updates (including Service Pack 2, it came on my laptop... which is only six months old)

disable the wireless and see if you continue to get the same stop error

you can disable the driver in the device manager

start..control panel
system...hardware..
device manager
your wireless network adpter
is listed there
right click on it
and click on disable driver

if that dont solve your problem you may have to uninstall the software but try that first
if thats the problem then inform the manufacturer about their product and drivers causing computer to crash
