Random system restarts...how do i fix?
    #2210969 - 12/31/03 02:06 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

I'm running windows xp on a system with ~620 megs ddr ram, a 30 gig drive with bout 1800 megs set as virtual memory (preset custom) on a 30 gig maxtor.
My computer shuts itself down for no apparent reason...no shutdown warning, just *bam* blackscreen and what is, apparently, a soft boot.
I'm investigating ram leakage/overload....any other ideas?

Right Click on My Computer
Click Properties
Select the Advanced tab
Click the Settings button under Startup and Recovery
Remove the check from the Automatically Restart checkbox

Next time it encounters a problem, it will give you an error message rather than restarting. Write down the error message, restart, and then look up the error message on google or in Microsoft's database.

That has to be one of the worst "fixes" micro$oft has done. They get sick of people talking about the blue screen of death, so they hide it. Now people think their hardward is failing instead of seeing windows blow chunks.
