xp re booting
well this isn't a major problem but every now and again my xp pro decides to re boot it`self as i switch on and log on i get 5 minutes into my stuff and for no reason the system reboots for no apparent reason
once it reboots it is fine , i get no errors or no report to micros%(*$ ,
or anything , does any one else have this problem , i am running norton av
i have the latest bios etc ,
and this only happens out of the blue,
any ideas ,
oh btw the bsod i had before has gone away , remember with mohaa , it was the bad ram stick ,

kempouk,does this happen when you are on the internet?
I notice from an earlier thread you are on ADSL with BT. (same as me)
The original Alcatel Speed Touch drivers on the installation cd can cause random reboots.
I upgraded my drivers to the latest XP ones,version 1.6.
Since then i have not had any reboots.
You can get them here

Alcatel were actually aware of the XP reboot problem and seem to have fixed it with the new 1.6 drivers.

I"m starting to get the same thing when I'm on the net with XP Pro , only mine is 0X0000008E IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
Doesn't do this with XP Home and all is exact (hardware & drivers & software) in the same box
