Operating System Version:Windows XP Home
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:PIII 500 mhz,(PC), 256 ram
Error Messages:

My system has spontaneously rebooted 4 times this morning.  Each time I was doing something different so I don't think it is application related.  I have a relatively new 300 w power supply with a dual speed fan so I think the temp. is ok. In what may be a realted issue, my hard drive will often appear to be running when I am not even using the computer ( and sometimes when I am).  During this, if I try to do anything, all actions are delayed, as if all the ram is being used.  Also, when it does run like this, it is a rhythmic type of run. (power up, power down, power up, power down, etc. every second or so. ) It will do this for 10-15 minutes and then it is back to normal.  I've used task manager to see what is happening and it shows the cpu usage going up and down.  Does any of this make sense?

Sorry I missed this thread!

If you sort the task manager's processes by CPU, which one is causing the cpu usage during these spikes?
