Every few minutes.. Always random.. Could be 1 minute after booting could be 4 hours.. My pc will just Turn off instantly.. Then reboot.. It didn't start doing it untill recently.. I installed some new ram but as far as I know that wouldn't have such an effect.. Any thoughts? Any help is greatly appreciated ..

If it started after the new ram, check it is seated properly

Click this for a guide to using Memtest

Click this to download Memtest

Run it overnight if possible

Video cards can do this, so check the drivers

Temperatures can do this, although this tends to cause the PC to go off and stay off
