Morning Paul Consider any programs you have installed shortly before this started. I have had the same thing happen the system would reboot for no reason at completely random times after some investigation and removing/closing anything and everything that might be causing it it occurred to me that shortly prior to all of the reboots starting I had installed E-Trust program suite to test (deskshield/firewall/antivirus) so I uninstalled the deskshield and waited a few days.... reboots continued, I uninstalled the firewall portion and waited a few days, then a few weeks and no random reboots so in my case it was cased by a particular (or part of) program. So give some thought to any new programs you have installed just shortly before the reboots, another avenue (already mentioned I believe) is the hardware, again if anything was installed just before the problem might have something to do with it also it could be hardware that is starting to fail.... Hopefully that gives you some ideas to start with Christy *********** REPLY SEPARATOR *********** On 6/28/02 at 08:54 PM Paul M.
