Flash drive for what?

About your question with the flash drive:
Memtest 86 can be setup on a flash drive... there are instructions on how to do this at the website for the program...
This program doesn't test your bios, but checks your Ram for errors... it is a very good test...
Like digerati stated sudden shut downs are usually attributed to overheating...
Download SPEEDFAN this program will tell you the temps of your system(if you haven't already done this)
is this a computer you built?
Did you use thermal paste on the cpu/heatsink interface?(if not this can also cause the problem)
Then post its findings here on your next reply...
good luck hope this helps...

Click here follow the instructions...
The part about removing the MOBO and placing it on cardboard.
See if that will help you out
Also when you remove a CPU from the MOBO new thermal paste should be applied after you have removed the old...(small amount no ozing)

Still won’t go
1-Remove the motherboard from the case and place on a piece of cardboard
2-Install only the cpu with hsf, 1 stick ram in dimm 1, psu, video card, case switch and case speaker
3-Connect ps2 mouse and keyboard along with the monitor
4-Repeat the above and power on
5-If the computer now boots into bios you most likely had a case short so make sure when installing the motherboard in the case that you use standoffs and they line up with the mounting holes in the motherboard and none of the standoffs touch anything else on the underside of the board.
If all the above fails to produce a post start a topic in the Geeks to Go hardware forum explaining what you have done and listing your full system specs
i have standoffs on but i will still check to just make sure.

please give us the specs on your entire computer: all hardware and what OS you are using...
This will help us determine if you have a hardware conflict...

here are the specs
Asus P5Q Pro - $139.99
This comes with IEEE 1394a port, if you ever need it. Getting the expensive motherboard is not going to benefit you, you'll only be wasting money. You have to check if you're going to take advantage of the features of the ASUS Maximus Extreme like 2 PCI-e slots (speed of x16 each), good overclocking board, etc. Since you're not a big gamer, you'll only be using one PCI-E slot and you already mentioned you're not overclocking.
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 - $324.99
Since we're saving a bit of money from the motherboard, I think this will benefit you more.
G.SKILL 2x2GB PC2-8500 - $109.99
I believe that DDR3 RAM is a waste of money right now and DDR2 would be the way to go.
Corsair 750W - $129.99
There's no need for a 1000W power suply, this would be more than enough.
Western Digital 150GB VelociRaptor 10000RPM - $189.99
Raptors are so expensive, I think you should just split up your hard drive in two instead of buying the higher capacity Raptor. Use this 150GB for your OS and then buy a Western Digital 640GB ($84.99) for your files.
video card is a HIS Redeon HD 4850 PCI express 512MB GDDE3
Samsung DVD-Drive - $27.99
I'm not familiar with Lightscribe (if that's what you needed), but I've always trusted Pioneer and Samsung.
the OS, Vista Home Premium 64-bit
