While running windows, recently my pc has rebooted randomly whilst in the middle of doing various things. I first noticed it when I was playing a game and it rebooted, it did not happen for several weeks then it began again the other day whilst watching a movie, then again today whilst burning a dvd.
My system is fairly old and is as follows:
Athlon XP 2400+
512 Mb RAM
128 Mb GeForce 4 Ti 4800 SE
Standard 16x DVD-ROM
NEC 3500A DVD/RW
Windows XP SP2
I checked the event manager and found the reboot event as :
"The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck: The bugcheck was: 0x1000000a (0x00000108, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x8064b173) A dump was saved in C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini062195-01.dmp"
I had my suspiscions that the computer was overheating, but was unsure as to whether a "bugcheck" would imply overheating.
Ta muchly for any help!
