My new desktop with Vista Home Premium seems to be restarting automatically now and then. Unfortunately, it doesn't happen when I'm around. I checked the events through eventvwr but it just says the system restarted unexpectedly (and gives some binary junk I can't understand).

I have disabled the possible causes for auto-restart, like auto-update. The restart times are not consistent, sometimes its late in the night, sometimes in the afternoons etc.

I'm really frustrated coz its a new system and its not behaving itself. I have of course installed a slew of software on it but none of them misbehave on my other XP laptop. And they don't run when I'm not around.

Can some one think of possible reasons and fixes? Please help.

What is the binary junk you can't understand? Can you send it to me? If it is weird letters and numbers then it is referring to a RAM address. It Could be your power supply. It could be an overheating issue.

If not supported you cant blame Vista - though you might want to blame MS for producing an OS with such little backward compatibility for both existing software and hardware.
