For instance..today i was attemping to burn an Audio CD..all was well until it started writing to the CD then it just rebooted on its own. A message appered saying that a serious error has occored and a log has been created.

I restarts when i use the net, play a CD, just about anything i do it restarts.

To bluto = His PC is resetting you idiot, not running slowly. disabling all security is not a good idea.
I didn't say slowly,you did.
I meant too much else was going on that cripples game play.
You don't need a Firewall running or Scheduled Tasks.How the hell am i supposed to know what he/she is doing.?
Tommy ? Is this a 1 user or a Network ?
Please get all the basic operation working first.
Lets deal with 1 problem at a time,like burning.

I'd wsay resetting is pretty crippling to a computers performance.
Anyway, I'm still running with my theory that the computer restarts because of a thermal issue. this is why it will restart during games because of the extra load and why it restarted duringCD burning (again quite CPU intensive) disabling services will help, but I'd never advise anyone to disable any firewall they had running.

Yeh I agree with Root, I had this issue a month or so ago.

I suggest you download Motherboard Monitor 5 or check temperatures in the bios, CPU should be running at about 20-45oC idle.

erm have you recently update your graphic drivers?? i have exactly the same problem as you do if i update them from my origional ones that came on cd with my gfx card. it sounds like this problem and thousands of other people suffer aswell, have a look at this link:

http://www.hardwareanalysis.com/content/topic/1075/?o=0

see if any of this sounds familiar - none of the fixes have worked for me by the way.
for u sake id hope it isnt this aswell lol
