hey guys *waves*
i am having problems with random crash outs on my pc, i could be browsing and it reboots making me unable to play games or watch anything through my xbox via medea centre.
my spec is..

AMD athalon 64x2 duel core processor 6000 + 3.00 GHZ
geforce 9800 GTX +
4 gb ram
windows 7 ultimate 64 bit

i have done all sorts of test inc scans in safe mode
i have tried taking out the ram to see if i have a bad one.
i have no viruses or add ware
its a clean pc from what i can gather.
but prone to crash outs, it just reboots itself.
if anyone could provide me with some advice that would be great, i hope i have explained the problem enough.

is it overheating?

i thought this at first but even with the side off and a fan blowing in it still does it.

Do you get the blue screen of death and a memory dump. Look in the window folder for memory.dmp
this can help you to locate the problem (if you have the software to read it). Otherwise open up administrator tools (in control panel) and look at the event log. In particular the critical and alarm lists this may help to locate the problem.
Is this a new self build machine? I had several shutdowns caused by the voltage for my memory not being set right these shut downs were very random.

could be psu, gaming calls for extra power to card, psu fails to deliver, crash. often no error messages. cheap psu,s more liable to fail.

I agree with "citadel" It sounds like a PSU problem to me ,I`ve had it in the past & a new one stopped it.

ok thanks for the replies =)
the psu along with the g/card, ram and mobo are all new parts, could it still be faulty?
and also it crashes when browsing or even if its just stood idle.

"it crashes when browsing or even if its just stood idle"

Does it crash if it's stood idle in safe mode?
