I'm posting this to a few relevent newsgroups:\n\nI have a desktop computer w/ an Abit Kt7 raid motherboard, a P4 2.7 ghz\nprocessor, 368 megs of ram, WinXP Pro and some other stuff. The computer\nruns very fast and very stable except for 1 problem: it reboots randomly.\nIts not very often, maybe once every 2 days for no reason, but there are\ntimes where it definately happens and times where it happens more often.\nI'm still trying to collect information on it but this is what i know:\n\nWhen i run Nero 6 it reboots every time i burn a cd or dvd\nWhen i run VMWare 4.5 it reboots every time i try to boot an image\nWhen i run nero 5 it didn't reboot very often , only sometimes - for several\nmonths, and now, with no changes in hardware or software it reboots every\ntime.\nWhen i run VMWare 3 it never reboots.\n\nThe reboot is very fast, the screen goes blank and i see the bios screen.\nIs there something different with the new version of nero and VMware that\nwould cause my hardware to run differently? When i ran an old vmware image\nin vmware 4.5 it didn't reboot, but when i upgraded the image to 4.5, it\nrebooted.\n\nI'm not sure what kind of diagnostics i can do on this system to figure out\nwhat's causing it. I don't have any error logs in WindowsXP. It's happened\non several installations of XP, not just the current one, so i guess its a\nhardware problem.\n\nDoes anyone have any suggestions on what i could try to figure out what's\ngoing on? Thank you.
