So I just recently had a problem where my computer wouldn't start up. So I took the battery out of the motherboard (thanks to these forums) and that got it working.

However, now, my computer will randomly restart. I get a loud sound out of the speakers and then it just restarts. It seems like it always happens when iTunes is running. It might have something to do with the internet too.

Any ideas?

Shut off the auto restart and post the error message you get when it blue screens.
Control Panel> System> Advanced> Start Up & Recovery> Settings >
untick auto restart.

Also, look in your event logs (Admin Tools) for events occuring around the time of the restarts.

Okay you read for this? :tazz:

And I quote:

A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software menufacturer for any Windows updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or siftware. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Adcanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

Techniocal Information:

**** STOP: 0x00000001 (0xF7D54000, 0x00000009, 0x00000000, 0xF7CFA15A

**** sbpci.sys - Address F7D54000 base at F7CE0000, DateStamp 3bd8c970
**** sbpci.sys - Address F7CFA15A base at F7CE0000, DateStamp 3bd8c970

What does this mean?

Have you recently added any hardware? Have you looked in the Device Manager for any errors?

From the device manager, it says I need a RAID controller driver. I'll go look around for them. Thanks. :tazz:
