While working on my site last evening, 45+ windows popped up and it happened so fast, the computer restarted itself. After restarting, I get a blue screen with white writing that says ntoskrnl.exe has something wrong with it. I first tried to repair windows, then tried to format it. No luck. The only way I could even get the computer to stay on without restarting itself was to disable the cache in the bios.
The scsi driver seems to be damaged or the drive/operating system is not understanding where it is supposed to terminate, so I think I am SOL. Anyone heard anything about a virus that could damage the computer so drastically lately? I always run the fixes and patches, but this one took my computer by storm. Any ideas about how to fix it?

Sounds bad. I would go with a motherboard problem. Try unhooking everything you can besides the video, mem, CPU, and whatever you are using for a harddrive and see what happens. I have traced rebooting problems to a bad Power Supply also. The motherboard will reset itself when it senses the voltage going low.

I will try the power supply, thanks for the lead. I have determined that it is the board or the chip, but I will try the power as well. I did a low level format of the harddrive this weekend to supposedly clean out any traces of viruses or operating system errors, now the machine will not run long enough to install win2000. If i disable the system cache, it will run long enough to tell me the same errors as before the format. Hardware issues. I have had all hardware removed from this from the get go, so the board must be damaged. I will let you know if the power helps. thanks again
