An easy solution

I just cleaned the filters of my ventilators. Now cooling works way better and I don't have crashes like you have anymore. After half a year of daily work everything was closed with dust.
If dust is not the reason it may be your cooling is not efficient enough after buying a new graphics adapter for instance. Also check if your power adapter has enough capacity.
Hope I could help.

Hi guys. My laptop always crashes, totally randomly, and I highly doubt its due to me doing any heavy multitask. It does it usually when I use Bittorrent and iTunes together. I thought it could be a problem with the RAM as I only have 1GB with Windows 7, so I upgraded to 2GB, although it runs...
