    Unable to access that page.

    How about explaining here what your issues are for the members instead of having to bounce around other forums.

    Right, no problem, here they are: Im getting auto reboots from xp sp 3 from idle state and don't know why. Here is a post on it I made at OA forum.


    The only additional steps I doing right now is preparing to reinstall windows xp 2 then xp sp3 from scratch. If anybody has done a repair on dell 4700 in a partitioned C drive using dell utilities or tried let me know.

    I'm not sure what is going on with your system and the cause of the failure but now you will have a chance to see and make a note of the bsod. As a favour locate your dump file by doing a search (the last one should do,) upload it somewhere and I'll diagnose the cause of the Windows crash.

    I have reinstalled couple of Dell and I really hate those Dell things. I always install clean orginal Windows and download drivers/programs before that.

    Hi MikeNAS:

    That is what I am going to do.

    Where do I get the drivers etc that I need? It's been so long since I did this stuff I forget basics sometimes.

    Drivers for dell from dell? hp printers from hp or is everything on a year 2004 win xp 2 original os? That can't be right, dated for sure.
