The title is what I get when my computer restarts after an unexpected shutdown. It started happening about 3-6 weeks ago. Pretty much my mouse and keyboard are disabled my comp freezes and the shutdown button is disabled as well when it goes into this state. I have debunked it from being the lan card i use, my hard drive, CD-rom driver and when i go to send the error report it says it might be caused by a device not properly connected causing immediate shutdown.(When it doesn't freeze) it just shuts down and goes to the nav screen(blue screen) with F9 boot order F10 Setup etc...

I changed and reformated my brothers hard drive and everything.
Windows XP on service pack 3 i haven't even downloaded anything and the problem persists. Before i reformatted this hard drive i was getting this message that my battery might be dying or something(I didnt get this on the other hard drive i was on before) similar to that like resetting it or something? And pretty much when i got back from school today after leacing my computer on i moved my mouse to remove the black screensaver and i had the error again. I'll repost the exact error name and details if it happens again

I need Professional assistance! :(

My System


If you got a message that your battery needs replacing then you should replace the CMOS battery (a "watch" like battery on the motherboard the size of an dime, available at any place that sells electronics or Watches). Also
Go to Start/Run and type chkdsk C: /R and press enter. Now type a Y and reboot the computer. the Check Disk utility will run at next boot up and try and fix any file errors. Also download the ISO image for Drive Fitness Test in my signature and burn the image to a CD using IMGBurn also in my signature. And boot off of the newly created CD and run the short and extended tests on the HDD.

Psychically it may not be your hard drive. But the file system may have errors and or bad sectors. Perform the CHKDSK as mentioned it wouldn't hurt.
