well for the last few months i have contemplated writing on the forum because of this problem but now its just becoming too much, all the random resets are hurting my soul.

my computer which ive had for about 3-4 years now, just shuts down for no reason, though im thinkin there might be a problem with the memory because almost always when im extracting something via winzip or rar, it shuts down. It also does it when watching movies or randomly surfing the internet so i really dont know what could be causing the problem. I have tried to reformat and see if thats the problem but nope, Still the same old thing, Can anyone help me

Howdy:

When was the last time you opened the case and cleaned the fans, heatsink, etc?

Do a web search for memtest86+. Run that and check your ram.
