Before you instantly reply I did a search on these forums and no seems to have answered the question.

What question you ask?

Well my computer reboots seemingly randomly and always with an error message to some degree like 'you computer has just recovered from a serious error'. When I follow every possible link I learn only a few things:

1) It's supposed to be a driver problem. Ok if it is but how do I narrow down the possibilites short of uninstalling everything and installing it again? Also something interesting happened that cause me to doubt XP's error messege.

I pulled a plug on my power strip and it was actually my computer (which was powered on at the time). When I reboted I got the exact same error message saying it was a driver problem but now I know it wasn't (it was a me problem or can it still be attributed to a driver?).

2) I tried to link it to a specific program but if say I leave the computer running overnight I can hear it rebooting in my sleep and obviously since it just rebooted there are no programs running. Not only that but since it's XP no users are logged on.

On another note that may or may not be related, Windows never shuts down but always reboots whenever I send the shutdown command. Hopefully the problems are related and can be solved in the same fix.

Speaking of fixes, I've been to the Windows website and downloaded every fix and update available and all the drivers seem to be compatible in that none show (!) or (?) in the device driver window from Control Pannel.

OK I beleive that's all the details, if I think of more or when it happens again I'll add more.

Finally I'm running and AMD XP 1.34ghz with 512mb Ram on Windows XP
