I've been having trouble with my puter, which will S.R (Spontaneously Reboot). It does it randomly, hence spontaneous, and I'm wondering if there is something I could do to stop it. My comp specs are as follows:

Athlon 700
SD-11 FIC MB
320 MB SDRAM
Game Fortissmo II Sound Card
Geforce 4 4600
300 Watt PS
Creative Labs Modem Blaster v.92


I would appreciate any help, thanks.

What operating system, video and motherboard/chipset drivers are you running?

Have you tried swapping out the power supply for a more powerful one?

It's Windows XP SP1, a GeForce 4 Ti-4600 (40.72s, or 40.51s), FIC SD-11 with latest drivers.

I built the system, but it's a BIOS setting, and I can't remember which one it was to change.

The PS is not the problem, used many different configs. Same problem.

i think you need to disable pme event wake up. should be in power management.

You should begin by disabling auto-reboot in the advanced properties of start-up and recovery (access by right-clicking on "My computer"). Sometimes a good BSOD is preferrable to a snide reboot. At least you can see what's going wrong.
