This looks as if it has something to do with your network setup or driver.

remove network drivers, after a reboot the system should install them again.

The shutting down by itself could be caused by a worm like sasser. Turn off system restore (control panel, system), then follow the instructions you can find either on the M$ site concerning sasser, or visit the Homepage of your antivirus Software where you should also find instructions of how to remove sasser.

I will try the network drivers in the morning. Think it is another amd and windows love issue!

Scanned the computer, clean. First thing I tried. norton and trendmicro gave it a clean scan.

I put an air pad under the laptop and it ran fine all day. Looks to be a heat issue on the reboots. Think it was using the drive for ram drive and it heats up drive/power side of laptop so much it hurt to hold and just over heats. Seen this a bunch with Dell laptops, just not HP.

I added 512 ram and that solve the virtual drive issue.

thanks for the info.
