I have been having BSOD reboots.  Event log error 41 reporting:  The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

Windows 7 Pro, HP Compaq Business Desktop dc7100 - P4 550 3.4 GHz purchase 9/29/05
4-sticks new EDGE 1GB PC3200 DDR DIMM and new 400W Antec power supply installed this week.   BSOD's less frequent after this new hardware installed.   Also increased BIOS idle time fan speed thinking possible CPU heat related issues.  CPU heatsink visually clean but not removed for thorough cleaning.

it seems that you are having some high temperature problems, clean the heatsink and fan, and replace the thermal compund on your pc, i suggest the use of artic silver 5 for thermal compund,  its around $10 US Dollar.

you can use everst software to monitor the thermal diods on the pc with the free release.

If the processor was over heating then usually it shuts down. then when you turn the computer back on, it stays on for a few moments then turns right back on and if you do it again it turns off more quickly. if not go into the event viewer then system and look for the critical error (the latest one when the computer last blue screened) and then use the BugError code 2-3 digit number usually. open up your calculator select programmer, type in the bug error code then select HEX after you type in the number (should be set at DEC by default). the result is the blue screen error code you put 0x in front of it (usually) should give you a better explanation of what what is happening if you type that into goolge.

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck.  The bugcheck was: 0x0000008e (0xc0000005, 0x82a36a71, 0x976d9954, 0x00000000). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 082610-23734-01.

Google search produces all kinds of suggestions from - virus to registry corruption.  Doubt if it is a virus, I am running AVG9 from an offsite hosted service.  Registry corruption?  If so who's registry repair tool do we all like best?
