Allright, so i've been fixing my pc for ages and was always able to, until this weird problem came across with Ram memorry (or something else?).I'll just go ahead and describe a probllem to you and hope for solution:


For a while a had a probblem with sudden restarts, some times it was like once a day and some times  it was much more often.It would usually show some stipes all over the screen before restart. 
At first i tought it was video card , so i took it out abut it kept repeating with different one...

Story short, pc stopped restarting unexpectedly when i took one 2GB Ram memmory card out.(i have 2x2GB).So, normally i thought it must have been that either that one Ram memmory card has been sent to Belize either was that one slot. But i tried putting other Ram and on other slot and everything works untill i put both of Ram cards at same time. So, is it that my machine cant handle 4GB RAM anymore or motherbord has some issues or?  


*sorry if english is all twisted up, im not that fluent since its not my native and thanks in advance!

Try running Memtest on each stick one may be going bad.
