    Hi
    As title
    Is there a way to find out what is causing the pc to crash, some log somewhere?

    Has always done it to a certain extent but seems to be getting worse
     
  2. Yes, right click 'my computer', this brings up the computer management console. Then in the left hand pane, look through the windows logs in event viewer.

    What sort of thing am I looking for?

    Keep coming across one which says restart manager?
     
  4. how is the crash manifesting itself? Blue screen of death?

    Yes
    Not been around to see it last few times, but yes get the blue screen
     
  6. Right then, when it blue screens, does it automatically reboot itself?

    When mine did that, I was told by a tecky that it was "stack overflow". I wondered what the effluent from the silage had to do with it....:facepalm:
