Major XP Problem (Help!)

As of recently when I boot up my computer it gets passed the BIOS load up, and then moves onto loading Windows XP Home Edition. After XP loads up and loads all of the startup programs, it restarts itself. No warning, nothing.

I figured maybe it was an IRQ conflict problem, moved some cards around in the PCI slot and nothing happend. I removed my half-dead DVD-Rom drive that has been giving me trouble lately, nothing.

Any ideas as to why? This is really really aggrivating.

Generic 10/100 lan card
Windows XP Home Edition

  2. If you have a computer that can connect to the internet, go to the Microsoft knowledge base. They have a fix for this.

    With that page, it isn't told that you should uncheck the "Automatically Restart" option. But, do that. Keep "Write an event to the system log" checked. Then read the How-To for viewing the event logs.

My site is on a server at RackShack (Texas), and according to the announcement <A HREF="" target="_new">here</A>, it'll be some time after the new data center is up before he does anything with them. I don't mind the downtime, because it'll be worth the awesome performance he's describing to us.
