Well then we are at a PSU problem then.
Do you have a extra PSU you can try?
If not you would need to replace the existing one with one that is at least the same wattage if not higher.
I myself would recommend a Corsair 550 or better. I would also recommend it be 80 plus certified so it is energy efficient.

Hello - I'm glad to be here! :)

My PC is behaving almost exactly as described above except I suspect my problem has more to do with audio than video.

I already have the Everest and Speed Fan test results. In fact, the PC rebooted when I clicked on the link above to the Speed Fan. [I was running "sfc /scannow" to seek possible problems at the time - I seemed to be getting nowhere because it demanded a professional Windows CD which, of course, I do not have.]

Now that I have the reports used on this site I wish to share them.

With all humility I await your response...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I just attached the screen image from the Speed Fan report.

All I can add is my problem seems most likely to occur while I'm using Sony Sound Forge Audio Studio to transcribe analog recordings AND when I use Finale 2007c to arrange/compose music.

The PC simply goes to sleep without warning and then re-boots, but recently it started just freezing and becomming totally non-responsive.

Thank you kindly,

Michael

MichaelTrumpetPlayer-

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go! :)

Please begin your own topic, rather than adding to another user's post. While your situations may be similar, they are not identical, and the differences in your system can cause problems when trying to apply a separate fix.

Please post a new topic in the appropriate forum. In this case, you can just make a new post with everything you just wrote (copy and paste is a wonderful tool :))

I play trumpet as well. :)

Error: Unknown
Dump file: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini051010-02.dmp

On Mon 5/10/2010 5:54:14 PM your computer crashed
This was likely caused by the following module: aswtdi.sys
Bugcheck code: 0x100000D1 (0x94, 0x2, 0x0, 0xBAAEDD6E)
Error: Unknown
Dump file: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini051010-01.dmp

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Conclusion
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2 crash dumps have been found and analyzed. Note that it's not always possible to state with certainty whether a reported driver is really responsible for crashing your system or that the root cause is in another module. Nonetheless it's suggested you look for updates for the products that these drivers belong to and regularly visit Windows update or enable automatic updates for Windows. In case a piece of malfunctioning hardware is causing trouble, a search with Google on the bug check errors together with the model name and brand of your computer may help you investigate this further.
