My computer is less than a year old and ever since i have had it it has randomly restarts. but the thing is that it does it in diffrent ways. some times it locks up and i have to restart other times i get the blue screen of death and some times it just restarts by it self. im a bit of a noob so i dont know why it is doin it for sure but i would like to know so i can fix this annoying problem. I have a feeling it is the hard drive but not positive. so could any one suggest a good prog. to test my hard drive for bad parts.

thx. paul

donload the hard drive manufacturers diognostic utility from their download section and run it on the hard drive
if that comes up clear run
chkdsk f/ r
post your system specs including the power supply details from the label on the side of the power supply
post any bsod error messages in full

There are a number of reasons why your computer can lock up, randomly restart or exhibit other strange behavior. Best thing to do is make note of EVERYTHING that happens prior to and after a lock up or BSOD. Another note on BSOD's, write down everything that it says. That is useful information. Eight times out of 10 it will hit the nail on the head as to what's wrong and the other two times it narrows it down quite a bit and you have to use process of elimination.

Reason # 120,978 to hate XP Home

1. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> System
2. Go to Advanced
3. Under the Startup and Recovery section, click Settings...
4. Under System Failure un-check "Automatically restart"

Then you will get the blue screen instead of a random restart
Copy that info into your next post

Go to Start -> Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager
See if there are any yellow !!!s showing and let us know what they are

Why did you post a HJT log?
This is the wrong forum for that, but it doesn't matter as your problem is not evidenced in your log
It is more likely a driver or hardware issue.
Did you look in your Device Manager yet?

Also see if there are any system failure messages in Event Viewer
