WinXP Random Restarts

  Aldred_85 12:16 24 Jan 2003

hello all, right the problem is with XP restarting randomly as described by the title. This problem is very intermitant, although it does happen more often if i leave the comp on the log on screen for anymore than about a minute. I'll log on, wait for the HD activity light to stop open any program(even my doc sumtimes!) and without notice it will just restart. Upon reloading the logon screen unless I keep moving the mouse it will completely freeze, thus another restart is required, by which time i get so cheesed off i'll just walk off!
If its any help i can give the the numbers it gives upon loading after a restart at the system error screen:

BCCode : 1000008e BCP1 : C0000005 BCP2 : F3A5555F BCP3 : F3BA485C
BCP4 : 00000000 OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 0_0 Product : 768_1

If anyone can help me its much appreciated,
Dave Aldred

Start, Control Panel, System, Advanced tab.

Startup and recovery Settings button.

Take the tick out of "Automatically restart"

The next time you have a failure, you will get a BSOD with error message(s) which should help to pinpoint the cause.

Right then, i've turned it off and got the comp to crash to blue screen and it said:
A problem has been detected, etc etc

Well I'm none the wiser either but this will get you back to the top.

I found a couple of MS Knowledgebase articles that referred to similar (NOT identical) errors.

One reckoned that SP1 would correct the error (have you got SP1?).

The other - relating to setting up XP - suggested removing memory modules one at a time (always leaving at least 128 Mb) to isolate faulty RAM.
