1Windows XP crash - no apparent reason

I have Windows XP Pro and lately, it's been driving me up the wall. It crashes (restarts) for no reason, just random restarting. Every time it restarts, it comes up with a message saying "system has recovered from a serious error" (or words to that effect).
I don't understand why this is happening. Sometimes it happens when I am watching a video file, sometimes when I am using Internet Explorer but always random. Please help me!

There are many factors that can cause your Windows XP crash. No matter why your Windows XP crashes, there must be a special symptom. Such as the issue mentioned above, the apparent symptom is a random crash, and this may be caused by device conflict, registry corruption, system conflict, memory conflict, etc. With proper measures, this can be solved by yourself.

First of all, you need a Windows XP bootable CD or USB drive: Wondershare LiveBoot Boot CD/USB, which allows you to make a bootable CD or USB drive for your Windows XP.
