    get speedfan or something like that to monitor all your temperatures. could be due to heat.

    did you put enough thermal paste between the cpu and the cpu cooler ?

    remember that microsoft's products sometimes like to fuck with you and just do random stuff.

    win 7 build 7048 would give a blue screen if you would wake your computer from standby.

    more than likely your power supply. I just bought a new one. I'll sell you my old 500w psu one for 30 bucks. I've only had it for 2 months and the only reason i bought a new one is because i need more than 500w to overclock my pc

    Did you turn off auto reboot ?

    If no go to /System/Advanced/Startup and Recovery uncheck auto restart

    Does it do it while you are active on the computer or is it when you go idle?

    I'm still getting random reboots/blue screens.

    Blue screen is saying check if the things you have intalled are properly installed, check if you have updated vista.

    so far i've updated my drivers with the drivers from the cd i got when i bought em... and vista seem up 2 date..

    It's easy to find out is your power supply big enough. Download a motherboard monitor tool, run some game,KO is good enough to test (many parts of your computer can go idle if they aren't used, they saving energy).

    Then, check the voltages. The maximum acceptable tolerance is +-10%, so if your 5V is betveen 4,5 and 5,5 volts, its OK.
    Check all the voltages, not only the 5V.
    If everything seems ok, check temperature. Electronic parts consume more power if they are hot.
