One thing I did not see you mention was running any kind of hardware diagnostics. I think you have ruled out software since it happens on two different operating systems. Most Lenovo systems have on-board diagnostics. Try hitting F10 during the boot sequence; this should kick off the diagnostics for you. It also sounds like you have a bad RAM stick or a bad ...

Even though this is a old thread. It's a classic case which I faced. Given the situations when it was rebooting as above, it is the reset or the power cable attached to the motherboard. Mostly the reset cable. Remove the reset cable, and you would know that it has stopped rebooting. This should be the first step in troubleshooting a random rebooting ...

You could try getting a copy of Sysinternal's Process Monitor, and then monitor Winamp as you close it, and see the various things it is doing. Maybe it is crashing while writing a file. You would see the file open event and know that. I've fixed buggy programs like this before.

Run the SFC utility after scanning your drive and memory for errors (use intuiton... how old is the computer?). e.g. chkdisk memtest86+ If you know that your box is not broken or dying; allocate more "swap". Increase the size of your "pagefile" to about ...

A similar problem, due to add-on and plugin incompatibility - crash only on closing Firefox - happened in my Windows installation. To confirm it's an extension issue, restart in Safe mode. If that solves the problem, then enable half your extensions, to see which half the troublemaker is in. Then in that half, enable only half of those left (i.e. one ...
