Hi, occasionally getting this error:

Happens when I'm playing a Playlist of music in Windows Media Player v10.

It happens at various times and tracks and causes the PC to reboot.

Any ideas anyone?

Well it seems its a device driver error of some sort,and as you were using WMP i would guess a sound driver error,or a corrupt codec.

I had this problem and had problems tracking it down. In the end I downloaded the program again and this sorted the problem.

Thanks - reinstalled and so far so good, although I'll give it a while yet, as it often takes ages to switch off.

Cheers
