I'm using adaware, and no I have not done any sort of restoring, because I reformatted, and had the problem right off the bat.

I have not yet run sfc, but I'll try the cable resetting, and do that.

Goober I had a simillar problem when i bought my geforce fx 5600xt card. My comp would run fine for a few hours then suddenly reset itself with no warning. Disableing system restore on all drives fixed this problem for me, so maybe thats something you should consider trying.

You should reformat your system to ensure everything is in-sync with each other hardware wise.
