You can change in the BIOS from Auto to Manual and set the ram to 15. See it it makes any difference. If it doesn't, set it back to Auto.

I got all the specs of my RAM, and set everything manually in the BIOS. Will do some gaming shortly and see if I get any random reboots.

I also found this while looking at my mainboard specs

"Due to the High Performance Memory design, motherboards or system configurations may or may not operate smoothly at the JEDEC (Joint Electron Device Engineering Council) standard settings (BIOS Default on the motherboard) such as DDR2 voltage, memory speeds and memory timing. Please confirm and adjust your memory setting in the BIOS accordingly for better system stability."

Thanks for all the help so far.

After changing The timings to 5-5-5-15, setting the voltage down to V1.8, and frequency to 667 manually. I've played Oblivion for a while and I did not encounter a reboot. So perhaps that was my problem.. But I guess only time will tell.

I have been having a very similar problem.
My reboots happen mostly (but are not limited to) playing games. And even with the "Automatically Restart" setting disabled in system prefs.
I created a new thread just for this topic so I don't thread jack.


Sorry that this is not an answer to your problem but hopefully some of the similarities could help for troubleshooting.
