my computer randomely shuts down, there is no real time limit but it usualy happens after i log into my account on xp it shuts back down with a blue screen saying "system has been shut down" dumping memmory to drive..
it can even happen after an hour or two

i have a dell dem E510 media center edition 2005

and i have 2 ram slots each slot can hold 2 ram sticks

and i have 2 ram sticks each one with 255mb of ram so i have 510mb

i recently added a 510 or so mb of ram to one of the slots. could that be the reason my computer is shutting down?
having 3 ram sticks? if so do i move both of the 255mb of ram to the same slot and then add the 510mb of ram to a seperate slot alone?

please hellp

Next time you get a blue screen, copy down the error message (including all the numbers) and post it back here. This will give us something to go on.

Do you have Norton Go Back or Norton System works installed? Also, if this issue is occurring when you are defragmenting the hard drive, you must shut down the defragmentation with the close command after the program has completely finished. try running Memtest 86 with only the new ram installed to see if that piece is causing your issue.

i realized the problem, the file SpeedUpMyPc is in my start up folder but for some reason that causes my system to shut down so when my computer turns on SpeedUpMyPc also starts and as soon as that happens i get the blue screen error

i tried it a few times and that was the cause of it, i havnt enabled it yet i went thru safe mode and took it out and its been over 8 hours my system hasnt shut down

but any reason why that program was causing the shutdown error?

I ran the program, with performance monitor enabled, and noticed a serious increase in interrupts per second and memory page faults with the program installed. Once I uninstalled the program {SpeedUpMyPc}, they all disappeared, and the machine was back to the normal level. All this looks like is an different interface layer to windows XP functionality. The program, did not detect ram correctly, and did not detect the multi processor configuration of this machine.
