Hi Guys,
I am running Windows ME and just recently when I am on the internet, the computer just starts to reboot, runs scandisk and then back to a normal desktop.
What can be the problem?
Please help!
Thanks,

Hey Guys,
Hope you can help with my problem.
While I am online, while playing games on Pogo, my computer reboots randomly.
I have checked fan and temerature and all is fine there.
Any other suggestions?
Thanks,
nanacj

Check your video adapter drivers, first from the manufacturers site for most recent version, if the one on the site is the same as you have, uninstall the drivers and re-install from the Video Card CD

Hi nanacj,

Just a shot in the dark but have you run any virus or anti spy/ad ware scans? Your puter may be infected with some sort of malware.

I know there is a virus that infected XP with this sort of behavier, it is worth a shot just the same.

To get started why not check this thread out http://www.geekstogo...?showtopic=2852
and follow the instructions, post your log in the malware forum and let the Geekstogo Experts take a look. Might save you some headache.

Hope that helps,

Joe V aka Puterman
