Hi, having got over 7 not shutting down it is now shutting down every five mins or so. Did it the other day and now doing it again. No warning, just stops and then re boots. When it has rebooted it says it's just recovered from an unexpected shut down, did I want 7 to investigate and when I press yes it does nothing. Help please.
Desktop, new PSU a few weeks ago with more fans all working OK, did the vac thing while installing the PSU. It's been OK for 48 hours now so hopefully whatever it was is cured. Ta for getting back and thanks for the advice.
Bug check code 0x00000124 it's the same on three reports. Caused by driver (1) dump_ataport.sys (2) ntoskrnl.exe (3) ntoskrnl.exe
Caused by address ntoskrnl.exe+4ade0c same for the three again.
Another thing that has happened is that I tried updating the graphics driver on both machines, one is Nvidia and is working ok (but still rebooting) and the other is a ATI radeon and now it starts OK in safe mode but on a normal start up the screen is full of crazy patterns although there is a blob that can just be seen that is obviously the curser. I'm wondering that it means that in safe mode it uses the on board graphics rather than the graphics card???????
