Spontanious Reboot

I have a NEC 6030H laptop that will spontanious reboot.  It happens most often with the CD-ROM plugged in the accessory bay, with nothing in it.  Could this be a Win95 memory driver, registry problem, or corrupted Win.exe?  Or, is it most likely a hardware problem, say my power supply? The programs that are running at the time vary.  And sometimes there is no program running at all, just Windows, or during a screen saver.
Help would be appreciated.

So many places to look...so little time!

Check for device conflicts under your device manager tab in system in control panel

Check for autorun settings on cd.  Turning autorun off might help

On laptops, these symptoms are often  associated with power management routines

Turn off your screen saver

of the 4, three of the proposed problem areas are related to periodic activities initiate by 95.   One other possible periodic operation that could be having problems would be in your installed networking protocols.  If suspicious of what might be running, get "Kernel Toys" from Microsoft site, extract WinTop and leave that running.  Check periodically to see what's sneaking in on you to automatically run under 95.

Finally, might be a hardware/loose connection problem.  Laptops take a lot of abuse, and a poor battery connection can cause mysterious problems.
