Hi all,

I have an Win XP Home edition loaded PC which now resets about 2-3 minutes after logging in. I don't see any error messages and it happens in Safe Boot mode as well. It happens after about 10 minutes or so when the PC sits at the login screen.

Thoughts? HW or SW?

Disable Automatic Restarts and see if there's an error message.
