I have upgraded to windows XP and im finding that im getting shut down or Re set every 15 mins or so with the above message on screen.
Ive not changed any settings since i installed XP but it never happened before on ME.
Set up is P3 800, 256mb, 20 GB H Disk...

seems to disconnect more when online ..
any offers ?????
cheers Dom
