Dell C600 reboots randomly in Docking Station

Hi All

I have a Dell Latitude C600 laptop with Windows 2000 installed on it.  Just recently the laptop has started rebooting at random intervals while it is seated in a docking station.  Suspecting a problem with the docking station drivers I repaired the Windows 2000 installation, which seemed to fix the issue for approximately two weeks.  Now it is reoccuring and I would like to find a more permanent solution rather than having to repair Windows all the time.

Can anyone offer help with this matter?

They also make fans and docking stations that have fans in them so that overheating does not happend will in a docking station or sitting on a desk for long periods of time.  I think that this is something that you may want to look into if you use the docking station offtend.

It might also be a heat problem - is the bottom of the laptop very warm?  You need to give laptops plenty of space around it for ventilation.
