Hello,

Ok, I'm finally starting to go insane. My computer has been randomly rebooting for a while now (I hope it doesn't go out as I type this!!). It happens at unusual times, it seems to happen most while using 32bit browsers. I can run 64bit IE fine. This is very weird. I replaced my RAM several times, rebooted windows, changed the PSU, installed a new hard drive and more. I still can't figure this out. I had a problem in the event viewer with hwinterface.sys, but I corrected it by adding the correct user permissions and have not seen it yet. This ( along with pclepci.sys) were two drivers that failed to run at the moment of the reboot BEFORE I reinstalled XP x64. Now, I don't get a single error in the event viewer but it will still reboot. All my of my drivers for my hardware are installed with their respective 64-bit drivers too. Please help me! Can it be a motherboard problem? Or CPU? I'm really narrowing it down to either one of those two. They're not even a year old though. I did a cmos reload and updated the bios.

I did disable the Automatic Restart in the Settings btw.
