Hello to all...

I am working on a Sony Vaio and it randomly shuts down.

I have gone thru a long list of procedure to narrow it down however I can't identify the culprit. :pirate:

1)Checked Fan (spining)

2)Checked for Virus or other Malware (Good)

3)Checked Hardware (Pass)

4)Checked CPU unit works fine..

5)Ram sticks (might be the culprit) it only has 480mb but at times it can use up to 500mb+ so can a comuputer shut down because it does not have enough ram? :mellow:

I tried to overload it with programs but I could not get it to shut down.. Maybe I should add more Ram..

I will take it appart and give it a better inspections. :police:

So hard to find the problem when there is no problem.... :blink:

Disable "Restart on error" feature...

1. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2. Click the Advanced tab (Vista: click Advanced system settings).
3. Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings to open the Startup and Recovery dialog box.
4. Clear the Automatically restart check box, and click OK the necessary number of times.
5. Restart your computer for the settings to take effect.

You may see some error message. If so, post back what it says.

Temperatures are fine.

BSODs - various error types, various system files involved - could be anything....unfortunately
