 PC Reboots itself when I exit games. Post a Reply  
From: LukeEd on 01/20/2003
Hi I have recently bought a new hard drive and had to rebuild my 100% working, never crashing pc. I now find that when I exit certain games like Battlefield 1942 and IL2 Sturmovik my computer will reboot itself. (It never used to do this before the rebuild). When windows restarts, I get a "This computer has recoverd from a serious error message" I have all of the latest drivers and never used to have any problems with the PC at all. If you have any ideas what could be causing this, please let me know.

My specs:

Athlon XP1800
512 DDR ram
60 GIG HDD w/ old 14GIG as back up drive
GF3 TI200
win XP w/ service pack 1

Thanks in advance for any posts!

first thing you need to do is stop the computer from rebboting that way you will be able to read the details of what is causing the problem when it bluescreens.

start/control panel/system/advanced/startup and recovery/settings under "system failure" uncheck the third box "automatically restart"

the next time it crashes it will remain on the bluescreen and you will be able to read and copy what windows is telling you is causing the problem.
