Oh yeah, sorry ^^;; -384 RAM 600Mhz P3 -WinXP Pro SP1 -Just reboots after like an hour. I'm trying to let it rest now instead of having it on continuously. -Zonealarm -AVG antivirus -It happens randomly. I've noticed it cuts out when I have WinMX or Kazaa running. Even just winmx by itself, it restarts. -I took out some usb devices like my scanner and webcam. I only have my cable modem and my ext hard drive connected. i'll see how that turns out. I'll be looking for another hd, just in case. I'm trying to be careful about adding removing hardware after i just took out my usb2 4 port pci card and my computer started, saw the windows xp loading screen, then blank. i put the card back in and it's fine. if anyone can tell me the correct way to remove hardware so that xp doesn't have a fit, i'll be grateful. thanks.

Is the PC in a re-boot loop? Does it happen while you are doing something? What applications do you have open when it happens? What anti-virus software are you using? Etc. etc etc. Give more info please... Spider --------------------------------- Do you Yahoo!? Free online calendar with sync to Outlook(TM).
