My OneCare Backup Reboots my PC RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to resolve a backup issue I am experiencing.  I have scheduled a backup on to my Maxtor external HDD through a USB port.  When I ask it to begin manually (or automatically) the program begins (gets to about 1%) and then dumps the PC in a hard reboot.  I am running the latest XP home software with Service Pack 3 installed on a Pentium 4 with 1GB RAM.  Both the internal and external HDD's are matched @ 500GB.  I have tried reformatting the Maxtor and uninstalled the recent SP3 patch, but no luck.  Any suggestions?
