****Pc keeps Restarting!****

  bigdamouk 17:20 28 Jan 2003

My PC has suddenly taken it upon its self to restart on a frequent basis, there has been nothing new added to the pc apart from Broadband a week ago but thats workin fine......it first started when i tried uploading my website via ftp.
It doesnt give me any warning just restarts.
I have an Athlon 1.3, 384Mb sdram, 40 gig hdd, geforce 3ti200. Nothing like this has happened before so i am stumped as to the cause?

Sometimes random restarts can be due to the PSU on its way out.

What's your PSU? Maybe with all those power hungry components in your PC, you will need at least a 350W PSU, maybe even a 400W if you are planning to upgrade soon.

im pretty sure its only a 300w psu......but this has only started in the past 36 hours......ive had these components from new?

I am getting the same problem.
I disabled the Automatic restart and a blue screen stop error starting:
0x00000024 ( then a load of numbers.

I have a digital picture of the screeen.

Where on the micosoft website can one look up the error message or can one e mail the picture to MS for help?

I've been told that heat can make a PC restart... Have any cards been added for the broad band which could be overheating the computer, and are they fitted securely?
