    Does it only reboots when you play warcraft or also with other games ?

    its jsut a bug in xp, this mornign after booting up and loading my browser the pc rebooted. i see microsoft havent fixed the problem because i picked up on that problem when i was beta testing XP for them, and i even emailed them to let them know about the problem ,as XP didnt create an error message on screen.

    computer properties > advanced > startup and recovery > and unchek the "automatically restart" button. If you get an error, you will now get the bluwe screen of death. Post the error here

    well now, instead of just rebooting you will able to see exactly what error it is that makes you reboot....the error will appear about half way down the page on a blue screen
