Random closedown of XP Pro

  Al-Cat 14:06 31 Oct 2003

A machine that has worked faultlessly for 18 months has recently been re-built with a new hard disk. Now it randomly crashes with the a blue screen and the following:-


please re-start your computer and if this continues contact your software or hardware vendor. When the computer is switched off and re-started it is all normal, foe a while!

I do not know which SW or HW is causing this condition.

Help would be appreciated please.

Resolved by changing the Hard Disk I guess it was running slowly.
