My computer suddenly started rebooting randomly, there are no scheduled tasks opening when it does this.
I am using an AMD 2600+
Windows XP Pro Enterprise Edition
1 Gig RAM
I replaced the power supply with a BFG 650 watts, it made no difference.
Swapped out each RAM stick one at a time, it made no difference.
Changed the BIOS to the default settings, it made no difference.
Replaced the AGP card, and it went from rebooting every 15 or 20 minutes to rebooting once about every 12 or 14 hours.
I did a complete Windows reinstall over the existing one, and installed Service Pack 2 along with all the updates.
I updated all the Drivers with the latest versions.
It makes no difference if the computer is sitting idle or I am working with it, it still reboots, so it seems that there is nothing particular that is triggering it.
According to Core Center these are the Temps and Voltages:
CPU Temp... 48
Sys Temp... 32
I disabled the Automatic Restart and got this error code when the BSOD came up the last time.
STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x8057BA86, 0xB94D9BBC, 0x00000000)
Begining dump of Physical Memory
Physical Memory Dump Complete
I Googled this error code and the Windows Help and support says the fix is to install the latest Service Pack, but I already have Service Pack 2 installed.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated and Thanks in advance for any help.
