Whenever im playing a game or running a cd (like a movie ) in about 5-10minutes into running it, it restarts by itself. i dont know what the problem is but when it restarts theres a blue screen saying some stuff i dont know what it means.
Go to Start > Control Panel, then open up the file called system. Then click on a tab Advanced then under Startup and Recovery click Settings, once you have done that under the area labeled as System Failure make sure the box named Automatically Restart does NOT have a checkmark in it.
i already tried this and it still dies. after that i went to power options and changed the power screen to "always on" no luck. btw this is my comp stats and stuff
80gb hard drive ultra DMA
512mb DDR optimize performance
S3 Graphics PROSAVAGE8
