Hi gerryf

OK, I already have the latest drivers installed, so no need to update...My problem with your suggestion of disabling my IDE is that it may be a few days before I encounter this problem again. As it is, the reboot problem has probably occurred 8 times in the last 2 months? So, what now?

Thanks
Jaden

I would still disable the IDE--it can easily be re-enabled later, but if it does not occur in 8 days or so, you can be reasonable certain it is a drive failing or ide controller.

You can recheck eventviewer if you like and look for more errors...those errors you mentioned are just as likley caused by your machine crashing as a NIC failure.

Hi gerryf

My only reservation about it being the IDE controller is that I replaced my motherboard about two weeks ago. Because the reboot was occuring when my machine was idle(never once when I was busy with it), it took me a while to realise. Initially I thought perhaps power supply faulty and changed it. The reason I have contacted you is because after I changed the board I thought it had solved my problem until yesterday when it rebooted again on its own for the first time since changing the board. It just seems nearly impossible that two boards would have exactly the same IDE problem?
