Okkaaayyyy.....

Well, I figured out why my computer does strange things. Well, atleast part of it. IT FREAKING SHUTS DOWN!!! When I went to bed last night, I had a floppy in... and I wake up this morning and turn on my monitor...and....
"Invalid System Disk. Please Remove and press any key."
Dude! WTF?!?!?!?!?
I so don't get this computer at all... why would it do that? If anyone with knowledge of XP can help me out, I will love you forever(If I already don't, that is ;-) ).

Is that the message seeing during boot-up? Or more like a warning some anti-virus software would give you before Windows shuts down if it detects a floppy disk?

Actually, I guess it doesn't matter - in either case what might be happening is a scheduled restart. A way to find some clues would be to right-click on "My Computer" and select "Manage". Then find the "Event Viewer" under "System Tools" and select "System". Look at the events around the time of the restart. If it's a scheduled restart, it might say so right beforehand. If it's not scheduled, you might see an event such as "...system recovered from an unexpected shutdown" right afterward.

I'm still trying to find out if scheduled restarts are even a feature in XP Home - usually that's something only a server would need.

"The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x000000b8 (0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000). A dump was saved in: C:\WINNT\Minidump\Mini041102-01.dmp."

It's happend 4 times in the last 5 days. It needs to stop, any ideas??

Re:
Write to XP Support. That's what they're there for. :) If you're gonna pay for your OS you might as well get your money's worth. Make them work to satisfy you. :)
