And since then, my computer occasionaly goes dead, then immediately restarts. It has also given me a BSOD twice.
This seems to happen EXCLUSIVELY when I am browsing the internet - it never interrupts me when I am gaming. I can be playing Team Fortress 2 for HOURS, then go to yahoo! where it will almost surely die.
I am able to bypass this if I put a song on loop in the background. While windows media player is running an MP3, the computer will not shut down, but moments after closing WMP, it will likely die.
I should explain the order in which I installed everything -
First, I installed the power supply. In order to see if it was working properly, I did not install anything else until three days later.
After those few days, I installed the RAM. After running with the RAM for a few hours, it died for the first time.
Lastly, I installed the graphics card.
Given that information, it could be either the RAM or the power supply, though plugging in the RAM seemed to trigger the shut down.
When explaining the steps, let's assume that I'm a newb with computers.
Thank you very much,
