    Does anyone have any sugestions.

    Default Re: Restarting

    Can you boot into Safe Mode? Hold the F8 key after the memory test to get the startup menu. Boot into Safe Mode. Then right-click My Computer and choose Properties. Go to the Advanced tab, Startup and Recovery section, Settings button, System Failure section. Uncheck "Automatically restart." Now when the system fails you will see a blue screen with some information on it. That may give you a clue as to what is going on. Or you can post that information here.

    Default Re: Restarting

    By default, XP is set to restart on errors. Go to Control Panel, open
    System, go to the Advanced tab, click Settings under Startup and Recovery,
    remove the check from "Automatically Restart" under System Failure.

    This will cause the system to blue screen on errors instead of restart and
    it might give a clue as to the source of the issue. Also, check the Event
    log, go to Control Panel, open Administrative Tools, open Event Viewer, look
    for errors that correspond to when the restarts take place, double click,
    the information in the error message may give a clue as to the cause.

    Finally, while at the XP desktop, place the XP CD in the drive, when the
    setup screen appears, choose "Check System Compatibility," this may point to
    problem devices or software on your system.

    Default Restarting

    When I try to restart my computer, i will save and shut-
    dawn windows but then it just "hangs" on a blank, black
    screen. I will not do anything after this and I have to
    unplug and plug my computer back in.
