To start with I need explain that I'm not the brightest when it comes to anything too technical as far as PC's go!
OK... my PC will boot up normally and everything seems fine. Then after a while (not more than 10 minutes) the machine hangs briefly and then ungraciously dies and the machine begins to reboot. The whole family has come to understand that once this has happened once it won't happen again until the machine has been shut down normally.
What makes it the more confusing is that I have recently reformatted the disk and reloaded Windows XP and this happened soon there after.
What would be really useful is to know what I could do just to determine what is causing the problem but that, at this point, is beyond my capabilities!
