Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Well now it restarts too frequently for me to ever have access to the desktop. As I cannot use another computer test my parts, I think I'll just have to guess which part is causing the error.

All of my parts are still under warranty, so it'll just cost me five bucks to return each part I send back (more than I would want to pay but better than nothing, I guess).

CPU: Seems fine. It's not overheating.
Hard Drive: Tested fine, also not overheating (if it can...).
RAM: Also tested well. Windows recognizes all 4gb.
Motherboard: I am not sure about this. I don't know how to test it.
PSU: Possibly faulty.
Video Card: Latest Drivers installed, tried with other drivers. Not overheating. Maybe faulty...

So I'm thinking I should send back either my Mobo, Video Card, or PSU. I don't know what seems to be the most likely issue. What are your opinions? Also the Microsoft representative told me that there should be a program out there that tests hardware. Do you know what she may have been talking about?

Thanks for all of the help so far guys.
