My PC keeps rebooting after about 20 mins usage.

The following is given as the reason when XP offers to send a reason:

C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini090904-03.dmp
C:\DOCUME~1\Alex\LOCALS~1\Temp\WERF.tmp.dir01\sysdata.xml

BCCode : d1 BCP1 : FD976000 BCP2 : 00000002 BCP3 : 00000000
BCP4 : F5041F2D OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 1_0 Product : 768_1

Any offers??

Hard drive problem? Run a HD diagnostic util on it, such as HD Tune click here

Not shure but please see what virtual memory you have mines 766mb it was 144mb & my computer was shutting down after 5 mins to 20 mins

Another possibility is the power supply, when overloaded it can cause the PC to reboot.

How do I change my virtual memory settings? May sound like a basic thing to do but I have no clue.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can put me right on this.
