    Use compressed air or so.

    Overheat or failing memory.

    One more question, would over heating video card cause software instability? Because my shitty little 9600 was really hot when i took it out. As for my PSU i could see it failing, its a generic 500 watt that came with my shitty raidmax case.

    Although far less likely to cause problems nowadays, have you got any IRQ conflicts? Open your system properties, and open the device manager, click view and resorces by type. You`ll see IRQs on the list, open that and look for conflicts. Note, intel chipsets share USB and AGP IRQ, and theres nothing you can do except not use those USB ports.

    Its most likely your PSU struggling in the recent heat, you need rock solid stability. Hope this helps

    Well my computer is running at ~40 degrees celcius, dont think its to hot.

    First lesson, dont use the PSU that comes with the case. They arent worth the metal they are made of. And yes your video card can bring down your system. Most likely though that it will either shut down(crash)or throttle off(black screen). Although GC`s can handle some big temps, lower is better

    Most likely u have busted/leaking electrolytic capacitors on the mobo. Last two computers I've seen having stability issues had problems with caps.

    Google up for instructions on how to check/replace them (sry, I'm at work and being lazy :P ).

    I hope this helps.

    If thats not the problem, your mother board is probably getting fried

    Incidently evenson ya big nub, when you say 'it errors': that error message does ACTUALLY tell you what the problem is. Even in a roundabout windows way.

    Try letting us know what it says :P

    Uhh, i've been getting a similar problem, but the pc doesnt shut down completely, only the monitor. The pc looks like as if it was idle, the power supply is still on, but nothing else (like the cd/diskete drivers) responds and i have to force a shut down. The monitor behaves as if the pc was shut down though. Kapersky, panda scan and avg say nothing's wrong, and I just replaced my fans and cleaned up.
