    My laptop is restarting without warning.

    I began looking into this problem last November Where can I get info showing what caused my PC to restart please?

    I did nothing because of other pressures. But it's started happening again. I'm fairly sure it's not overheating - my laptop is on a Belkin fan-assisted base. Nor is it one browser or website. A few days ago I saw in MSComm a thread from someone having the same problem - he posted an analysis of the mini-dump which pointed towards his AMD processor. The analysis was an instant (and free) report provided by OSR's Instant Online Crash Analysis. I was burning the midnight oil on a big job and Murphy's Law operated - my PC shut down at 1:09 am GMT. After it restarted I ran the Instant Online Crash Analysis. This is shown in my next post - does it tell you what happened and what I should do about it please?

    It's 1.45 am so I've had a 20 hours day - too long at my age (40++++++). Hoping the Analysis is informative.

    What OSR provide is way over my head - their website is

    Hi, basic question- does it shut down suddenly- instantly- or does it appear to shut down gracefully?
