Hi fellas,
having trouble with my PC.
It randomly re-boots & is getting on my nerves.
There is no pattern to this at all, nothing for a week or two then
it re-boots twice in ten minutes!!
I've mem-tested my Ram & temp checked my graphics card, no problems.
Have ran system with alternate sticks of Ram in alternating slots, no problems.
I have just downloaded WinDbg, version 6.11.1.404 but haven't a clue
how to use it!!
Have also run a programme called WhoCrashed but I don't understand the analysis, maybe you guys would be kind enough to have a quick glegg at the following ;
Crash dump directory: I:\WINDOWS\Minidump

Hello Slime58

Well, I`m not a fella, but here goes anyway

Try updating your ATI drivers.
They could be the cause of it all.

Sorry Dunedin,
no offence meant & thanks for your prompt response.
Updated to the latest drivers a week or so ago but I'm
still experiencing these random re-boots.
Only very rarely do I get the BSOD. My PC normally just re-boots.
It's done it twice this evening, about two minutes apart, but I only get
a crash dump analysis following a BSOD.
Incidentally, the BSOD only happens at night when I have left my
machine on & I'm asleep! Spooky!!!
Any more thoughts,
yours hopefully,

Slime58.

P.S. You're looking nice this evening ..........................

No offence taken, I was just having a laugh Happens to me all the time.

Well the culprit is
ATI Radeon WindowsNT Miniport Driver

Try reinstalling it and if that does not help, go find a different driver for it.

Are you sure you checked all the temps properly?
