    have you tried booting into "safe mode" and running a few checks too make sure xp is all there?

    A few more details would help. What error messages do you get? What are you doing when it crashes - try to link crash to specific action. What software is running?
    Also try running spyware removers Adaware and Spybot Search and Destroy. Spyware and trojans can create havoc. I just cleaned Xupiter spyware off a mate's comp -he couldn't surf the net or do mail!
    You say you scan with Norton. Is it up to date with latest virus definitions? Old unupdated virus scanners are worse than useless.

    Get better cooling.
    It may be a device conflict.
    You dont have more than 1 of each device right? (No 2 LAN cards.. No 2 Graphics cards..etc)
    hmm.. Recently drop or spill something on it?

    Did this used to not happen?

    Well it's crashing because the cpu is getting too hot.. Labtops dont have huge Fans inside them like pcs.. Look up some really good laptop cooling devices (i.e. something that you fit around the whole bottom of the labtop that can be recharged and basicly builds up very cold air.
