Hello! I built my computer in May and have just been receiving this problem in the last week.
When doing something stressfull to my computer it randomly restarts. No error message, no blue screen, it is as if I pushed the restart button (which I did not)
This is surprising since I played Age of Conan, Warhammer, Left 4 Dead, Fallout 3, and many other high end games with no trouble. This first only happened on Call of Duty 4 (which I got for Christmas). It would restart in single player or multiplayer, after random intervals. Someimtes it would take only 10 min to restar, or 2 hours, or I could play for 3 hours no trouble. Then I got WoW and it would happen as I am playing wow AND watching a video online.
This led me to think it was RAM related, but PC Wizard shows my ram doesnt only gets to about 1GB out of my 2GB.
It may be a PSU problem but I really am stumped and need help
Here are my specs:
Chipset : AMD 780
Processor : AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ @ 3000 MHz
Physical Memory : 2048 MB (2 x 1024 DDR2-SDRAM )
Video Card : NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT
Hard Disk : WDC (120 GB)
PSU: BFG 650Watt ATX 12V 2.0/EPS12V Dual 12V Rails
Please tell me if I should put more info since I've never posted it before and not 100% sure what someone would need/
