    Angry Visual C++ restarts my computer!

    Hi, I have a damn big problem!

    I had Visual C++ Standard 6 and Win2k!It was working fine for a half year, then it started to restart my computer after compiling/linking a program.It happened absolutely randomly!That means sometimes it worked okay, but sometimes it restarted my computer, and I couldn't even imagine what was the reason, or what to do...
    I decided to reinstall my computer, and I put Win98 on it.
    Then it didn't do any bad for 1-2 weeks, but after this it started to restart again!!Under a different OS!!I asked my friends what should I do, and I was told, that maybe there's a memory error, and I should run a full memory test!I did it and no errors were shown.My computer had a very old 64 MB SDRAM chip(and a new 256 MB SDRAM chip, which I bought), and I took out the old RAM from the computer.But nothing changed sadly, it continues to restart.And only VC++ does it...
    So what do you think?

    Thanks in advance!

    I think win2k has an auto-restart on bsod mode activated by default, you might try going into system properties and disabling that. That would at least let you know what was happening.

    Correct, XP is the same way, if its not the auto-reboot it may be the memory dumb procedure.

    Umm guys, there's a problem: I have Win98 now(I mentioned before).
    And VC++ does the same thing under Win2k and Win98 too!
    It may be a hardware problem...

    Hrm. Okay... That ain't it.

    So, you say your computer just blips off, no notice, no error, no BSOD?

    Q: Is it a hard hang (everything stops, no buttons work, screen may or may not go black, computer stays in an inoperable state until you restart it manually) or an internal restart (screen blinks, then you are seeing your boot up screen, without you having reset it or turned it back on)

    Q: What other processes do you run on your computer? (Both concurrently with VC++ crashes and other programs that work fine)

    Q: What are your basic hardware specs, and do you use the cooling mechanism that came with your computer or have you installed something decent? Do you overclock?

    hmm lemme jus throw a few things out:

    bad power box, faulty ram, too many devices in comp, too many devices plugged on same circuit as pc, loose pc connections etc.

    Added any new hardware lately or since this began, anything at all?
