Sounds like you have an overheating CPU.

How long does it take to get to a crash and what are you doing to the point of a crash?

It crashes mostly when i am running a progamme, i.e on the net with aol or a game. However it does sometimes crash when nothing is running. For example i just started up the pc and it crashed as soon as the desktop loaded up.

Hi,

Many things to check...

1. Try booting in Safe-Mode, do crashes occurs? Hit F8 before WinXP boots to access boot menu and select "Safe-Mode"

2. Run CHKDSK, Start > Run
Type 'CHKDSK /r' (no quotes)
This will run CHKDSK during next reboot, therefore reboot.

3. Make sure CPU fan is well seated on CPU

Let me know the outcome!

Can't really be much help with a solution to this problem but I have been having the same problems myself recently.  Except I get more freezes than restarts.  Also I have drivers that delete themselves or should I say become unrecognizable to the system even thought they are physically there and programs the point blank refuse to start.  My system is also painfully slow.  I have checked for viruses with several virus checkers and cannot find any and am at my wits end and thinking about reformatting and starting again.  At the moment I operate Windows 98 but am seriously considering upgrading to XP due to the neverending problems I seem to be having recently.Sad
