Sounds like you have a virus. Do you have anti virus installed?
#2
Have you installed any new hardware?

Try booting up in 'Safe Mode'. When the first screen comes up it should say press F2 or F8 etc

Try restoring your computer to an earlier day.

I think you should be checking your eventlogs, they should give you an idea why your system is erroring out. To get to your eventlogs, right click 'My Computer', click 'Manage' and then choose 'Eventviewer'. There are three logs, Application, security and System. System is where you should start, there will be many entries but you want to be looking for warning entries at the time the system shut down. If there's nothing there of interest then have a look in the Application log similarly for warnings at the time of the shut down.

It could be a problem with your graphics card, do you by any chance have a ATI Radeon Graphics card? If the problem is what I think it is, you shoul be able to boot to safe mode (F8) when booting, then try un-installing the graphics driver then give it a re-boot and install an older driver for the graphics card

Well a little detail wouldn't hurt...

There should be one which was the last entry before the computer was shut down which should give some relevent details as to the cause of the shutdown.

Error 09/02/08 system error cetegory 102 event 1003

this can be caused by bad ram or a device driver error.

Mine did this and the techs at works said it had to be reformatted cos basically it was uggered!

I click on start (bottom left of screen, then run, then a box appears with msconfig highlighted, click on ok, then a system configuration box pops up, click on system restore, then restore my computer to an earlier time, click on next, then choose the date you want to restart from (before the problem happened), then click next and wait. The system will close down then start up again.
I had loads of problems with my computer after logging onto myspace (which has now been banned off my computer!), and I would restore it, and it would sort the problem out. After I have done this often the message would come up like yours that the system had recovered from a serious error and everything would be okay.
I'm sorry I can't explain it any better, I am absolutely useless on computers and don't really understand how they work. I just know if I have any problems that if I restore it, it works fine afterwards.

As Johnmcl7 has pointed out. the event viewer will give you a good idea of what the problem is.

1003 can be RAM error of a driver problem. right click on the error in the event viewer and it should give you/us more details.

It could always just be a cooling problem. Check that the fans on your CPU and Graphics card (if there is one) are turning.

If you can boot the machine and go into setup (usually by pressing F2 or Del when prompted) and check th temp of the system components. There may be a shutoff temp that it is reaching.

If the fans are clogged with dust get the vac on them (gently) or buy an air duster and clear out all the rubbish.

This problem occurs because after a Minidump file is written, the paging file continues to have a flag set that indicates that a Minidump file must be written and obtain the latest service pack for Windows XP. .Basically when your system crashes it creates a minidump file. You can stop the serious error pop up report ... its quite techy but i will post it here if you feel confident to do it...
From the Start menu, click My Computer.
In the My Computer window, double-click Local Drive (C:).
In the Local Disk C: window, double-click the Windows or WINNT folder, depending on how Windows XP was installed. If Windows XP was installed from a CD, the folder is called Windows. If it is a factory installation of Windows XP, it is called WINNT.
In the Windows or WINNT window, select the Minidump folder.
Click to select each file found in the Minidump folder, and then on the File menu, click Delete.
In the Confirm Folder Delete dialog box, click Yes.
Close the Minidump window.
Reset the Pagefile.sys file.

Open Control Panel.

From the Windows XP default Start menu, click Control Panel.
From the classic Start menu, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.

In Control Panel, open System.

If the computer is in Category View, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click the System icon.
If the computer is in Classic View, double-click System
In the System Properties dialog box, click the Advanced tab. In the Performance area, click Settings.
In the Performance Options dialog box, click the Advanced tab. In the Virtual Memory area, click Change.
In the Virtual Memory dialog box, write down the Initial size (MB) and the Maximum size (MB). After you are finished, click to select No paging file, click Set, and then click OK.
In the System Control Panel Applet dialog box, click OK.
In the Performance Options dialog box, click OK.
In the System Properties dialog box, click OK.
Shut down Windows and restart the computer.
When the computer restarts, open Control Panel.
From the Windows XP default Start menu, click Control Panel.
From the classic Start menu, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.

In Control Panel, open System.

If the computer is in Category View, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click the System icon.
If the computer is in Classic View, double-click System.

In the System Properties dialog box, click the Advanced tab. In the Performance area, click Settings.
In the Performance Options dialog box, click the Advanced tab. In the Virtual Memory area, click Change.
In the Virtual Memory dialog box, type the Initial size (MB) and the Maximum size (MB) that was written down in step e. After you are finished, click Set, and then click OK.
In the System Control Panel Applet dialog box, click OK.
In the Performance Options dialog box, click OK.
In the System Properties dialog box, click OK.
Shut down Windows and restart the computer........

Hope this helps. If your unsure maybe get someone to help you as its quite a lot to do .

Sadly, this sort of thing often happens at some point. My laptop had this problem, suggested solution was more memory, fitted it - worked for a while, then hard drive packed up forever. Would have lost everthing had I not backed ueverything up using Acronis and USB hard drive. Unfortunately, last back-up was months before the final crash, but at least I only lost a few months worth of photo's. Anyone want to but an old Medion laptop (was just out of warranty, natch!)?

Moral: ALWAYS regularly back up your files on an external drive (or DVD, if enough room), know how to restore the files (a good idea to practice!) and if you don't know how to do either, find out. before your system dies. It ain't that difficult.
