My XP PC has done 3 or 4 spontaneous restarts in the last week. It has never done this before. Any idea what might be causing this? Could it be the heat & humidity we are experiencing here in the SE UK?

Many thanks.

it could well be - try opening the case and check that all fans are running. Also check for dust/hair etc and clean the inside.

have you looked at the heat sync on the processor. I had same prob last week and it turned out after I cleaned the fans it still happened. Turned out the gel under the heatsink had dried out. Just added some new gel and hey presto!!! all worked fine
