Default System Restart Randomly

Every time im in the proccess of burning a cd my computer just restarts then it gives me an error about minidumps. Even if i leave my computer sit for a while, it might restart. i recently added ram and a new hardrive...also i thought my burner was the problem so i bought a new one...what can i do?

Well, the problem is most likely hardware, but I seriously doubt it is the CD-RW drive. What operating system are you running?
If you are running 2k or XP you can stop the PC from rebooting automatically by right-clicking on My Computer and going into properties. Goto the advanced tab and then click on the start-up and recovery tab. Under System failure, uncheck Automatically reboot.
As for a solution to this problem, try removing the recently added RAM and then try burning the CD again and see if you are getting the same results.

"Blue Screen Of Death". That will be your error message, Sometimes not much help though.

that's the problem, pull out the newly added ram and see whether the problem still there?

When I had my BSOD issue with that equal to stuff, My issue was heat! Different people will have different opinions about it but ya already changed the ram and still got the problem. Try this link to check your Power Requirements http://www.jscustompcs.com/power_supply/]
