well looks like im back again with yet another stop error problem.

computer works fine, it seems to crap out after several hours of usage under some kind of load (web browsing/gaming).

ive googled it, but didnt really find much help. Microsoft knowledgebase didnt help me much either.

i have to admit because this computer is packed in a multimedia box, with high performance gaming parts, it could just be a lack of ventilation. it can also be the psu aint putting out enough. either way (whether its sufficient or not its getting replaced). im hoping to kill two birds with one stone. and if not im planning to switch to rounded cables and add a few mini fans.

specs for the comp

Antec Aria w/ 300w psu
athlon 64 2800+ w/aftermarket fan
asus k8s-mx MATX board (i do not recommend this board at all)
geforce fx5950
1gb (single stick) pc3200 ram
80gb hard drive.

nonetheless i cant help but think their may be a hardware/software issue at hand. so if guys would know of anything or have had this problem before please let me know what you think i should try doing.

oh yea and at the end of the blue screen it says something like system dump blah blah blah. i didnt write it down ^_^

ill write down when it happens later.
sorry for the lack of detail.

Random reboots are typically caused by heat, faulty memory, bad drivers, or yes, power supplies.

Run a memory test, update drivers, and what is the power supply ratings (amps) especially on the +12v rail? AMD64 systems need 18 amps or better.
