Windows 7: Sporadic reboots - argh!

Sporadic reboots - argh!


Four times now, I've stepped away from my computer for a few minutes, and come back to find it rebooting after a windows crash! It's never happened while I'm in front of it, apparently a watched pot never boils, so I don't know the exact sequence. The Action Center's been of no help. I'm working in Windows 7 Pro 64-bit, factory installed on a 6-mo old Dell refurb laptop.

If anyone could help diagnose the problems, I'd be very grateful! - I'm uploading the prescribed set of files with this post.

merci buckets.

Thanks! I installed a more recent driver, and with some luck all will be smooth sailing.

FYI, I hit a few snags trying to update the driver. First, the Intel utility thought the driver was up-to-date, and so did Device Manager. But looking through the downloads on Intel's website for my wireless adapter came up with a more recent one, disguised as software+driver bundle. I guess it's Intel that needs to do the updating...
