a better long-term solution is to turn off the automatic reboot so you can actually see the error when it happens. Chances are it will tell you enough about itself to let you troubleshoot further.

IF windows constantly reboots, or flashes a blue screen and then shuts down, Try hitting the F8 key while the computer is booting up. What you want is the black screen where it says:

Windows Advanced Options Menu

Onec there pick "safe mode" and do the following steps below

To change the recovery settings to disable automatic rebooting:

1. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.

2. Click the Advanced tab.

3. Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings to open the Startup and Recovery dialog box.

4. Clear the Automatically restart check box, and click OK the necessary number of times.

5. Restart your computer for the settings to take effect.

Now when you go to shut down and a fatal error occurs, you'll at least see it and it won't cause an automatic reboot. You still have to sort out what's causing the problem.

Copy the information from the blue screen and look it up on the Aumha website to tell you where the problem is occuring.

You can post the information on this thread so we can help you with the problem.
