Computer keeps crashing

Post by Kevzen on 25th October 2009, 5:30 pm

I have a problem with my desktop. Every so often, it will just shut itself off, without warning. This is becomeing a major irritation to me, as it will shut off when I'm in the middle of downloading things, or writing a paper, things like that. It's running Windows XP, and I'm sorry but I can't give any more information. If more is needed, please tell me how to find out what specific things are needed to help.

Hello,

This usually happens when you computer has malware or it's overheating. Does you computer have good ventilation?

The ventilation could be better I suppose, I'll move it to a place where it will get more, and see if that helps, thanks.

I'm having a similar problem. I disabled the automatic reboot so I could write down the error messages, 5 or 6 in the past two days. I thought it might be Mozilla, but it was still rebooting when I was without internet during *one* of the snowstorms. I have Logitech wireless keyboard & mouse, thought that might be it, so I uninstalled, none of the "goodies" now, just mouse & keyboard, still the same problem. It has good ventilation, recently cleaned, also I ran some program that it said read the temperature, which it said was ok, but who knows?
