I just corrected a blue screen/random restart problem by cleaning dust off my CPU heatsink with a can off compressed air. Apparently my CPU was overheating. Try this before anything expensive. Good luck!

ps. I also tried to re-install windows/formatt drive and it didnt help.

yes i do,i bought a new one the other day thinking that it was that,heres the specs of my new one:

Serial ATA Ready,
450W (The old one was only 150W,so i thought that it wasnt putting out enough power)
120mm Fan

Oh and its Blue with Blue LEDS

But u have a very intresting point about the CPU over heating,cause ive im in a hot room it restarts more often than if i have a window open.Perhaps i shud try cleaning the fans and Heatsink.Ok i just d/l Aida32 Sytem Diagnostics tool and it says my CPU is running at 64oC (That sounds hot).Is it normal to run at that temputure??? How can i minimise it?

Disable auto-restart on error

Right click my computer>>properties>>advanced>>Startup and recovery settings.

Uncheck auto restart.

Next time there is an error, it should just bloue screen with an error. Please post that error.

64C is extremely hot for a CPU. Look into some thermal paste and an aftermarket heatsink and fan.

You may want to add more fans to your case, preferably 2 Intake 1 Exhaust.

I think that error is memory relatedd.

Download memtest 86, burn to disk, boot off of it, let the tests run for more then 5 hours.
