are you running up to date antivirus and antispyware,,,and a firewall? all necessities pretty much, and could be a virus. go to a antivirus site and run their free scanner if you don't have antivirus yet...and better get some if you don't

oooo worm me scared. ummm my advise is to go into ur bios to check ur tems first before the windows thing comes up. or make sure nothing came loose or corroded. sometimes it corrodes and you dont even know it. have u tried switching some parts out or a reformat?

Could be many things, bad ram, harddrive. What changes, even minor, did you do to your computer.? Anything at all?

"1. Bad Video Card....video would seem to be ok but then you'd get random reboots. Blue screen would give a wierd error on the Dump Screen.
Upgrade Video Drivers and see if that helps
If you got a spare video card try swapping them out and see what happens.

2. Overheating...generally this freezes up most systems..but sometimes it will cause random reboots. Check your Tempatures to be sure there are enough fans circulating air in/out of the case.

3. RAM could also be the issue. Download and burn MemTest to a CD
http://www.memtest86.com/
This will determine if it maybe a RAM problem.

what about a firewall and antispyware? you can get zone alarm firewall and microsoft antispyware free and run those....see if that helps any. firewall won't help if your computer's already infected, but will help prevent it in the future......and maybe try running your antivirus program scan with the computer in safe mode.

To me, it looks like a severe worm, bad RAM. Use Memtest86.

I have a 350MHZ PII comp and a 64MB stick and a 32MB Stick was failing. I could barely get past Windows, couldn't extract or run properly.

Can you post your system specs? Could be a power issue. Usually bad memory would throw up a Blue Screen of Death with an error message. Also, what are you doing on the computer when it restarts?

Make sure all cables to motherboard, from power supply and cards are seated properly (including the memory). Re check that you have seated the heatsink on the CPU properly and that the correct settings for the CPU are set in the BIOS with regards the Front Side Bus and Multiplier.

Does the restart happen when you are doing a certain thing all the time? Like a pattern or just random restarts? Have you installed anything (software) as of late right before this started to happen?

Test your ram, and make sure your computer isn't overclocked or "optimized" in the bios.
