    well .. i've got this problem ...
    which has been going on for abt 1 1/2 months...
    i have an AMD Athlon 1 ghz overclocked to 1.3 ghz.. with 256 MB SD RAM..
    now.. the problem is that... windows xp restarts itself in the middle of any installation process...
    when i was installin quake 3 arena.. it jus restarted by itself at abt 25 % of the installation ....even durin a PHOTOSHOP installation it restarted by itself...
    i cant install any type of software on my WINDOWS XP..
    can anyone please help me out in rectifying this problem .. ??

    ok, you say youre o/c, right? i assume that you have a proper cooling system so your pc doesnt restart with the heat. have you tried underclocking your system to a stable number (1 ghz, right?) and try installing.

    hope it works, Apu

    Also if you go to my computer\properties\advanced\startup & recovery you can untick automatically restart. From memory you will then get a box telling you what is going on or you could look at the system log but I don't know where it is stored.
