    right click 'my computer' -> 'properties' -> 'advanced' -> 'startup and recovery settings' -> uncheck 'automatically restart'
    Write down the error you get.
    Also tell us what a 'regular task' is.

    A regular task for me is talking on aim or msn, also surfing the internet with opera or manging some files.

    "Manging" files can freeze a PC easily.

    Is this a regular occurance or just every once in a while?

    Error message: Title: Windows - Display Driver Stopped Responding
    Replace the display driver: http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp

    I already had the latest drivers. But i updated again with these:
    ForceWare Release 80
    Version: 84.21
    Release Date: March 17, 2006
    WHQL Certified*

    What if that doesn't solve the problem?
