    Dell Optiplex 980 with Win XP Restarts!!

    Hi All,

    I have this brand new Dell optiplex 980 And as the company policy this computer works on Windows XP SP2, It started to restart randomly, and i Found out the problem is in the RAM so I replaced the RAM, and the machine was working just fine till it starts to restart back again, but now it happen like 1 time a day, i found nothing in the Event viewer, and also I left the Automatically restart when system failure unchecked, but it still restarts.

    Yes I am sure, But what I do see in the Event Viewer in the Applications Tab, that the Symantic cant Install its updates, Failed to update, could this be a cause for this similar issue ?
