It sure sounds like a hardware conflict.
First up - Isolate the problem. Can you connect to the internet? When exactly do you get these error messages? On start up, shut down, connect to the net..... etc...
For now, check your RAM for compatibility with your mobo and other components.
For clarity.... Look up Balarc Advisor on Google and download it. Run it. That will give you a complete advisory of all software and hardware you're machine is running. You may spot the troublemaker yourself.
If not, post it in here.
We'll take a look.
Ok, here are more details:
I ran Belarc Advisor, nothing seems wrong. I have 1 stick of 512 MB memory that came with the system...so I doubt that is a problem. I recently (in late December) reformatted my harddrive...so I think system files are fine.
Internet works fine, all the programs work fine and it happens unspecific to any programs or tasks. I have all current updates for programs and drivers for hardware.
It DID begin to occur after installing a few components:
My DVD-RW drive and a PCI USB 2.0 Hub.
It hasn't happened ever while connecting USB devices....but it has a few times working with my other optical drive, the CD-RW. Is it possibly a conflict between the two optical drives? They work fine when I use them.
It is possible the power supply is too weak...Yesterday it crashed/restarted and then crashed again as soon as I logged in and started playing a CD. Perhaps the powersupply was struggling. It has never happened twice in a row before.
EVERYTHING on the computer works perfect everytime. It just autorestarts without notice and without unique provoking. I hope SOMEONE has an idea about it. Thanks!
