XP Pro Keep Rebooting
Posted on 2003-11-20
I have one pc connected to a network in my office. My problem is; it keeps on rebooting .. the RFC notification of shutting down and gets resets again.
It reboots after an hour or 2.. and gives me 60 seconds to save all files. I have thought it is a blaster worm.... i look on the processes to find the file that contains blast or anything like that... i can not find it.
I run the fixBlaster sofware.... and found no worm blaster on my PC.. asked me to install the patch for vulnerability which I did 32 bit patch for XP Pro from Microsoft site.. then later installed a Anti-virus... set up a firewall.... and then everything went fine... after 2-3 hours being fine... there it goes again.. same error and prompt me to save unsave files and gave me 60 seconds to do this.. and then it reboots again.
This happens at least 4 times a day... 8 working hours/day.
I later suspect that it might be because of the batter??... This computer has a history of severe noise.. i just don't understand where that noise is coming from, the processor or the fan... i have not attempted opening it.
PLease.....ANY IDEA on this issue????
