Myself and a few of my friends are all having the same problem right now with our laptops. We all have windows XP and we have deduced that the problem is triggered by internet access. Basically what happens is that the computer has a system error but it flashes too quickly for anything to be read, then the computer restarts. It loads windows and flashes the BSoD right as the XP loading bar finishes. This restarting continously cycles unless a person intervenes and either turns it off and starts windows in safe mode. What we were able to figure out though is that this problem is avoidable if the wireless internet button is turned off. If we try and connect to the internet at this time it starts the cycle again. I have no idea what i can do considering i cant update my virus scanner but maybe i can find the file and delete and i would greatly appreciate some help in doing so. We have all done virus scans with various software and have detected nothing. Also, my brother has told me he heard of some virus that was messing with the news stations that sounded similar to this but i couldnt find anything on it. Oh by the way, I am using a friends computer that is not infected.
Thanks and i hope this problem can be easily solved. :tazz:

I am not very good with this kind of thing but I can make it easier for some one to help you, Read This and do what is says in safe mode, now instead of restarting, it will give you a STOP* error, post it here it will be used to work out what is wrong with your computer. There is a list of the common errors and how to fix them Here
