i tried your tips to fix the problem on my GF laptop, now the same problem appeared in my Dad PC and it didn't worked then i followed the tips mentioned in this guide:
it really fixed the problem but i m a bit confuse that why your suggested method didn't worked this time.
Leo, if after a random re-boot occurs, a Windows XP message pops us that says, “The system has recovered from a serious error”, and the Error Report Contents window shows a couple of files in a …\Locals~1\Temp… folder, does this mean that the random re-boot was probably caused by a software glitch? Is this an indication that a hardware problem probably is not the cause? This has been occurring recently about once or twice a month. Anti-malware scans are all clean and I have not installed any new hardware for a long time. Thanks…
My brother had this problem. It turned out his computer manufacturer had created a bunch of tasks in the task sheduler to reboot his computer every day at specific times. I know this may be a bit far fetched, but it might just solve the problem.
My computer(XP) restarts repeatedly when i connect my old unboot(badsector problem) HDD through SATA/IDE to USB Adaptor Cable for backup my Data. and if I remove USB Cable System Runs without Problem.
sir i found the answer to the reboot problem , turns out i had the same problem its not overheating neither its the videocard the problem its the PROCESOR yes i have an i5 too all what i did was log into the BIOS of the pc and modified my i5 so it only works with 2 cores instead of 4 i heard somewhere that computers run better videogames with only 2 cores active; i did so and to my surpirse my pc did not reboot anymore it was a miracle! try it !! it will work make your i5 to work only with 2 cores !!
I installed another OS, Ubuntu, and the problem continued.
Does that mean I'm looking at a hardware problem?
