Solved Sudden reboot Tags: Computers Windows XP Last response: August 18, 2011 5:03 AM in Windows XP Share rgnr June 29, 2011 8:42:32 PM Ho there, folks. Today's issue is related to occasional computer reboots. OS is Windows XP SP3, no viruses or trojans, PSU and cooling is fine (30C). No component, that consumes much power, installed. What else can cause the problem?
