Thank you for your time.

Ok here is our problem. In the morning when we first turn our computer on we have problems. You turn it on and then it will go to the desktop page. We usually sign into Yahoo Messenger and check all of our other stuff. Before you can click the e-mail button the computer screen will go black. The whole computer shuts down and restarts. It will either do this a couple times or another thing. The other thing it does is it will freeze right as you get to the desktop. Once you get it started and going you don't have a problem with it for the rest of the day. It shut off yesterday at 9:36 am.

This symptom could also be caused by failing RAM. Download Memtest86 or Memtest86+ and burn it to a CD. It can be downloaded as an ISO file and you will need a burning program such as Nero or ISO Burner 1.1 to handle this.

Make sure the PC's BIOS boot order has the optical drive before the hard drive. Load the burned CD into the drive and restart the PC. The program will start running automatically. Run at least 3 complete passes. There should be not errors found. If errors are found shut down the computer and remove all but 1 RAM stick. Re-run Mentest to see if that RAM is the bad one. Test the rest of the RAMs individually. Test all of the RAMs.

Memtest 86


ISO Burner 1.1
