    PC Randomly rebooting

    Right, running Windows XP, Service Pack 3

    PC been randomly rebooting over the last few weeks. Started with once every couple of days, now its about twice a day. Doesnt seem to matter what I am doing, its even done it on the "welcome" screen

    This error has come up more than once....

    BCCode : 1000007f BCP1 : 00000008 BCP2 : 80042000 BCP3 : 00000000
    BCP4 : 00000000 OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 3_0 Product : 256_1

    Can anyone explain to me wtf the code means, cos I do not have a clue.

    Cheers

    Could possibly be the below;

    Possible Resolutions:

    • Stop 0x7F messages are typically due to defective, malfunctioning, or failed memory hardware. If you added new hardware recently, remove and replace it to determine if it is causing or contributing to the problem. Run diagnostics software supplied by the system manufacturer to determine if the component has failed.

    • Running the CPU beyond the rated specification, known as "overclocking," can cause Stop 0x7F or other error messages due to heat buildup. When diagnosing problems on overclocked systems, first restore all clock and bus speed settings to the manufacturer recommended values to determine if this resolves the issues.

    • The problem might also be due to cracks, scratched traces, or defective components on the motherboard. If all else fails, take the system motherboard to a repair facility for diagnostic testing.

    • Stop 0x7F messages can occur after installing incompatible applications, drivers, or system services. Contact the software manufacturer about possible Windows XP specific updates. Using updated software is especially important for backup programs, multimedia applications, antivirus scanners, and CD mastering tools.


    But I've not seen an error message like the one you've typed out.

    They usually look like this;

    removed the stick we put in, hopefully that will have put an end to it.

    I dont get the "blue screen of death" on this, I get a nice little popup with "windows has had a serious error" click for details... thats where I got the codes from.

    You will find your system is configured to reboot on system failure, it will show a bluescreen for a spilt second then reboot, this can be disabled so the bluescreen stays up and you can read the error.
