Default My computer reboots itself for unknown reasons? Help please someone

First, clock speed when computer is on is a function of a
computer timing crystal. A completely different clock

error problem.

First provide basic information. A previously posted
procedure will provide basic facts that are still missing:

While using winxp the computer dumps out of XP and goes to a black
screen [like the old dos days] and displays the "above message
appears" and the A:drive light is green and on like it is expecting a
disk in the drive.

PROBLEM: My computer reboots itself for unknown reasons.

here is a list of my comp
CPU AMD|2500+/333 Athlon XP Barton
Connect 3d|Radeon 9600 128M DVI/TV video card
DDRAM 256MG|DDR400 CL25 PC3200 Kingston X2 = 512 Megs o ram
HD 80GB|WD 7200RPM 8mb cache

Also, my clock runs about 4 minutes fast all the time, I have to re
sychronize it all the time with windows servers.
any help would be appreciated with this problem.

I am sorry for crossposting but I wanted to reach a wider group of
people with knowledge.
