Let us know if none of this seems to help.

It has only failed one more time in the last 24 hours or so (a few minutes ago).
I looked in the event viewer and there's nothing.
How do I test/eliminate the power supply as a possible problem?
I read you can monitor heat levels. Is this worth doing?
I downloaded memtest86 and put it on a CD. It doesn't seem to boot. I just moved it to the CD like any other. Is this correct? Is there nothing I need to do differently to make the CD bootable?
Thanks for your continued help.

A Athlon 2400 puter i had was restarting and at times just shutting off because the 12 volt line showed only 11.39 volts all the time. This was a cheap power supply problem and when it was replaced by a thermotake 430 watt PS the 12 volt line stayed ar 12.13 volts all the time then and the computer quit crashing.
If memtest did not start up then it was burned to the cd wrong.

I'll see if I can figure out what's wrong with memtest...

If you do not know how, do this
open up the program with no other windows open.
press the following keys:
ALT + PrintScrn (it might say sysRQ below it)
Hold the alt key than press the printscrn button
open up paint and click i think edit than press paste. it should show your temps.
use somethign like photobucket to upload the file and post the link on to here so i can analyze your temperatures.
