Thanks to The Shed, but re-installing the drivers was one of the first
things I did. (I should have mentioned that, sorry)
why? The Auto-restart is already disabled, although the event logger does
Under "System" it shows problems with NIC1394. Also with Service Control
Manager event 7023. As I am not getting the BSOD very often with the error,
It will have to wait until I can run SC QUERY.
Under Security it shows "Failure Audit" for Account Logon, Logon/Logoff.
Under Application is shows a warning for "Usernev" and Error "Appplication
Hang" events 1001 and 1002, but not for every time the pc has stopped. MS
knowledge base has no infor on these errors.
And YES no new software!
Hummerog, no pcanywhere installed.
Many thanks for all your help so far guys, keep those ideas comming in !
