pc reboots

  conrail 10:41 24 Jan 2008

running xp home sp1, I have ccleaner; avg; spybot; adaware & a2squared, pc has suddenly started to reboot for no reason although I do hear an occasional click coming from it prior to rebooting and also at other times, I have used an air cannister to clean the inside and all cables seem to in place, the pc also sometimes freezes and sometimes I am looking at a blank screen but the pc is still running resulting in a manual reboot, I have also done a memory test, thanks to Marg7, on another thread,from click here

I hope you have your important stuff backed-up. Looks as if your hard-drive may be about to fail.
Also when this present problem is sorted, I would advise you to upgrade your XP to SP2 at least - SP3 is now in use.

thanks Technotiger, that what I thought, I am awaiting delivery of a new hd and have backed up but I thought I would post query in case there was a possibility of it being something else
