My XP Home PC has been spontaneously rebooting from a bugcheck error. I know these errors are notoriously difficult to pinpoint but the toughts of doing a complete reinstall is enough to make me tear my hair out. I have done a lot of configurating with this PC over the past few months, ie Home networking,MS Flight Sim configurations,not to mention the fact that my studies are tracked on specialist installed software. A new reinstall would literally take weeks to get right and I simply don't have that kind of time.

Can anyone please help me to islolate what may be causing this poroblem. I have opened the case, hoover the dust, cleaned and reseated the memory with no success.

Spec
XP Home SP2 ( fully updated)
160GB SATA HDD
40 GB HDD ( for Backups)
2 GB RAM ( 2x1GB Modules)
nVidia Geforce 6600 Graphics 256MB
Creative 7.1 Live soundcard


Thanks for any suggestions

I noticed in 'advanced settings' that my PC is set to reboot on an error. I have unticked this in the hope that it will get a chance to produce an error message instead of shutting down.
