Nothing glaring defined. Just old drivers and a SFC

Old drivers needing update
Code:
RTCore64.sys    5/25/2005 1:39:12    0x42941d90    fffff880`07bd9000    fffff880`07bdf000        0x00006000                        
ALSysIO64.sys    4/19/2009 14:41:04    0x49eb7e50    fffff880`07bce000    fffff880`07bd6000        0x00008000                        
AtiPcie.sys    5/5/2009 10:00:22    0x4a005486    fffff880`01994000    fffff880`0199c000        0x00008000
How To Find Drivers:
Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

Thanks for that, all I can see in the event log is that sidebar.exe faulted just before the reboot.

sometimes gadgets in sidebar can develop a memory leak. The increased memory and cpu cycles can crash a system with ease.


Good Luck
