Computer re-boots on it's own ?

  RDG 18:52 24 Mar 2003

My computer has started to re-boot on it's own during the evening on most days now for no apparent reason.

Event viewer says "Computer has rebooted from a bug check" but no further advice on this is available from Microsoft.

Anyone got any ideas please ?

Thanks - RDG.

Does the log have a link in it? Click it if it does...There maybe a possible fix.

The Link goes to Microsoft which tells me there is no info available for this problem. It is very odd as I have actually been in the room when it happens and the machine just goes into a reboot. No power blips etc so at a lost to know what is happening.

Thanks for this although I see no logical thread in all the replies other than XP. No major changes have taken place on my machine and this problem only started a month or so ago. At first it was once a week then couple of times and now almost daily and always in the evening. Machine may have been on all day or only switched on at 1800.
I think I will monitor the mains voltage and see how stable this is as I live out in the country.
Any other suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thanks RDG.
