My Windows 2000 computer keeps rebooting unexpectedly. Very annoying. Flashes to a blue screen for about a second then reboots itself.

This is what I get in the event viewer after it does it:
The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x00000050 (0xdaf7a4d4, 0x00000001, 0xa002b025, 0x00000000). Microsoft Windows 2000 [v15.2195]. A dump was saved in: C:\WINNT\Minidump\Mini020203-05.dmp.

Check that mini-dump. To read it, you need MS Windows debug tools. This will tell you what the problem is and an error code. You may need to run it through Knowledge base to get an exact breakdown of where it lies.

Problem fixed.
LHGPooBaa (my BF and member of THG) told me to restore backup. It worked. Haven't had that prob since.
Thanks for your advice though.
