my PC is bent on driving me nuts it seems. Or rather, my Windows is.
I have re-installed Windows after some problem caused it to be fried and have re-added those things I need (drivers etc., same ones that worked fine for months on the old one). But now something weird happens: After few minutes of working, usually with some CPU load, the PC just resets and starts anew. No error message, nothing. I could replicate the problem both in normal and in safe mode using a simple PERL script that causes an infinite loop and thus uses 100% CPU time.
Which naturally let me think my CPU was defective and overheating. But when I booted up RIPLinux and performed the same experiment there, the PC ran for over an hour at 100% CPU without any problem, which leads me to believe that it has to be a problem with Windows...
...but what is it?
