Windows XP, by default, is set to restart when a `stop error' occurs. In earlier Windows versions, it would display a blue screen displaying the error which has caused the problem. In XP, this screen will appear and immediately restart the computer.
To switch off this `auto restart' option, please do the following: Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties. On the Advanced tab, click Settings under Startup and Recovery. Click to clear the Automatically restart check box under System failure, and then click OK.
Now this would not actually solve your problem, but you will at least get the blue screen which will give you some hint on what is causing the problem.
Most probably it could be an ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) related problem. You will have to update your BIOS to the latest. Microsoft has provided a solution to solve this problem. Please refer to the URL:

GMAIL- Great Trick .

Do you know your Gmail. More features and giving much space to stop the spam at the Door Step.
If you have the gmail Id as user.name@gmail.com is just similar to all these following..
and test yourself sending test mailss.....
usern.ame@gmail.com , userna.me@gmail.com, and u.sername@gmail.com, and usernam.e@gmail.com and also..
replace gmail with Googlemail still you can receive.. the mails so you are getting 2 mails as you get signup.

You probably know how to create multiple email aliases in Gmail by adding the plus symbol and dots to your Gmail username but there’s something more interesting.
When you create a Gmail account, you actually get two email addresses - one is the regular @gmail.com while the second email address has @googlemail.com in the domain.
That means if your email address in Gmail is something like billgates@gmail.com, all email messages that are sent to billgates@googlemail.com will also be delivered to your own Gmail account. That’s two for the price of one.
Like the Gmail plus trick, you can take advantage of these two domains so that less spam reaches your Gmail Inbox.
Give the @googlemail.com address to your friend and office contacts (put that in the visiting card) while keep the @gmail.com address for relation (put it on your blog). Then set a Gmail filter such that all email messages with @googlemail.com in the header go a special folder so you will never miss important email from close friends.
So you can easily differentiate the mails..

Retrieve important files

The user folder in "Documents and Settings" is set with full permission for the corresponding user. One user will not be able to access another's folder in "Documents and Settings". If the operating system crashes and is reinstalled in a different drive, then the user logged in from the new installed OS will not be able to access the previous Documents and Settings user folder. The old Documents and Setting user folder has to be given permission for the required user.
The administrator has to take ownership of the user folder and its contents. After this, the necessary permission for the folder has to be set. After logging in as an administrative user, to take ownership of the user folder, please right-click the user folder in C:\Documents and Settings and click Properties; Click the Security tab; Click Advanced and click Owner tab. In the name list, the logged in username and the Administrator group will be displayed. Select any one and select Replace owner on sub containers and objects. Click Ok and then click Yes for the message. Click Ok to close the Properties window.
This will take ownership of the folder and its contents and set the full control permission for the folder. After this, you can copy the files and folders in the Documents and Settings\User folder. For more details, please look up: http:// support.microsoft.com/kb/308421 There can be some folders where even if you change the permissions to the folder, it is not possible to access the contents or not possible to change the permissions. The folder might be inheriting permission from its parent folders.
To remove the inheritance from the parent folder, please right-click the folder and click properties. Click the security tab. Click advanced. In the permissions tab, the check box "inherit from parent the permission entries that apply to child objects. Include these with entries explicitly defined here" will be selected by default. Remove the check box. During removal, the check box will prompt you to select one of the options: To copy the permission entries those were previously applied from the parent. To remove the permission entries those were previously applied from the parent and keep only those permissions explicitly defined here.

SQL server installation

If the SQL server does not install successfully, you can determine what has gone wrong by checking two files, `Sqlstp.log' file and `Error log'. The Sqlstp.log is located in the Windows directory. It provides detailed information on the setup and also the errors encountered during setup. Reading this file will give you a good idea of where the setup fails. You can also check the SQL Server error log, named `Errorlog' with no file extension, located by default in the Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\Mssql\Log directory. This contains errors that the SQL Server encounters during startup. When the Setup application fails, it rolls back all changes to the file system, which includes removing any copied files and changes that were made to the registry.
One other component you could look up is the Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) setup, which is launched as part of the SQL Server 2000 setup. SQL Server 2000 setup installs MDAC 2.6. The MDAC setup creates a separate log file named Dasetup.log; you can review this log file and make sure that there are no problems with the MDAC setup. For more information, please refer to the following URL: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/232060/ and http://support.microsoft.com/kb/257716
If your system hangs while you are installing the SQL server, please check whether you have installed all the required components. While installing the SQL server, please minimise the Setup window and other windows to see whether there are any messages relating to File Copy or File Sharing. For uninstalling the SQL Server, please check whether the `uninst.isu' file is present in some other folder. `uninst.isu' is created during Setup and is found in the MSSQL directory. If you have successfully installed the SQL server, this file will be created in the MSSQL directory.
Use the Uninstall option in the setup program. To do this : Click SQL Server 2000 Components, and then click Install Database Server. Click to select Local Computer, and then click to select Upgrade, Remove, or
Add Components to an existing instance of SQL Server. Click to select Default or select what you want to uninstall in the `Instance Name' drop down box, and then click to select `Uninstall your existing installation'.
After the uninstall program is complete, you will need to clean up the files/folders used during the process.If you cannot use this method to remove SQL Server 2000, you can manually uninstall the SQL server.
