I've have the same problem. I ask the same question at MS website and didn't receive any help. Does anyone have a solution? I've install a new hard drive, scan for virus, down loaded the latest updates and upgraded memory. I'm using a soney,
510 memory
P3 process
120g hard drive

I had the same problem and brought it in and found my fan was dirty and was rebooting because it was overheating. I had it cleaned and I have not had any problems since.
