    Windows XP rebooting

    Im running Windows XP, and it just restarts out of nowhere, no blue screen, just restarts.

    If I take off the option for it to reboot automatically, it still reboots.

    Sometimes I cant even boot into Windows, and get a blue screen.

    Suggestions?

    Thanks

    No new hardware added recently.

    I have to hds, one with linux and one with windows, so I can easily test if its the power supply.

    New twist.

    After it restarted, it said I am missing

    \Windows\Syste32\Config\System file.

    How can I get that, I have the XP recovery cd

    That happens to me when I put my memory freq above ~168MHz. Also, it kept rebooting because my processor was too hot. I just took the heatsink off and on again and it works like a charm again. Maybe you could try that.

    If you got a custom rig, I suggest you chech your temp's like others said.

    Also if running P4, make sure your power supply is above 250W, or you might get some problems, not that any computer actually uses all that power but it is there for stability in your system!

    I don't think he's overclocking here people... I think this is a random system fault. There is a more detailed thread over at FD, and I think he stopped updating this one.
