How to fix my rebootable computer?

Question

Hello

For some reason, my computer crashes right away and automatically reboots itself when I open a full-screen program like a movie or a game. It started happening when i installed this game client called STEAM. I know that it didnt have a virus because my friends got it from the same website and theirs work fine. Even after I uninstalled Steam it still reboots. Can you please tell me how I can fix this?

Thx

This question was answered on December 27, 2004. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

Right click my computer and select properties then the advanced tab, and under startup and recovery click settings and uncheck the box that says automatically restart, also set the write debugging information to none.

Now instead of your computer rebooting, you should receive an error message telling you why your system has crashed Pay particular attention to any drivers identified in the stop message.

Post the error message here so that you can take a look at it.

This will show you what is affecting your PC.
