Hi, i've been upgrading this old pc that was running win98 perfectly to winxp home... the system now keeps on randomly rebooting, sometimes when i click a button(any button for that matter) it reboots or even on its own sometimes...
now i've checked the event logs and at first it seemed like it was the acpi, because a fatal error came up in the event log stating it was an acpi prob... so at the moment i've shutdown acpi and installed winxp without it, all seemed to be ok then the rebooting began.
now there are no errors showing up in the event log, so my question being are there any other event logs that would give some information on the error causing the restart? i get no BSOD, and i've turned off auto reboot on error and still nothing
The mother board is a DFI CA63-SC and its running an intel 800mhz cpu, 512mb ram.. originally i thought it may have been the bios, so i found some updates, and the bios is now up to date with the manufacturer supplied updates. is it possible that the bios (if that may be the problem) wouldn't be able to hold winxp upright?
Thanks for any help offered..
