I run a XP professional at home. Recently it started booting up
itself when we try to connect USB devices, or while surfing.. Is
there any better verison i could upgrade to.
The tech guy said memory could be corrupt. Any suggestions?? We right
now have 512 MB RAM (128MB shared with VGA) and it sits on a 2.8 GHZ
Intel HT processor.

Actually, if you go into the bios/ power settings; I think you'll find
you have
your computer set to wake up on a USB event.  If you turn
this setting to off,
it should fix you right up.

Re: Problems with XP

dannysdailys is right (USB Wakeup).  Of all the years I've worked on
computers, the number of times a computer goes from simple fix to complete
reformat and reinstall is after talking to a "Tech"  Just the thought of a
client calling a tech makes me sweat, especially the CompUSA, Best Buy,
Fry's, Circuit City techs....

Agreed.  Google is the best tech you'll ever find.
