    My PC rebooted itself and gave me the following errors:


    Is this hardware or software related? Thank you in advance.

    You’re probably having a BSOD but not seeing it. Eks Pee’s default setting is to reboot when it blue screens. I presume you have left this default setting but you probably will need to see the BSOD message to sort this out.

    To turn off the automatic reboot (which will leave the blue screen visible), go to Start> right click on My Computer and choose Properties> Advanced> Startup and Recovery [Settings] and uncheck the “Automatically restart” box.

    I turn off the automatic restart every time I install XP or 2K3 for this very reason.
