Windows 7: Random Restarting

I dont know. Use it like you would normally and see if the same things you did before crash the computer again.

If you go for a week without crashing, I would say it is fixed. If you dont see any crashes today or tommorow post back so we know you are doing good. If you see any crashes after that, just post here and we can try more stuff.

Even if this doesn't fix it, it still rules out one more cause.

Also, you can leave the wire off if you can use the power button to restart. Most power buttons when held down for 5-10 seconds will power off the machine. A good tip also, wait 30 seconds to turn the pc back on. this will allow the electricity to dissapate and all info stored in the RAM will be lost so you start up clean.

Thanks for all the advice... but I'm not sure if there will be no restarts in a single week = prob fixed... cause (about a month or 2 ago) when someone told me that my keyboard could be the threat, I changed it and haven't had restarts for like 3 weeks... than restarts as usual... strange wasn't it?

Yes. that is strange. I guess whenever you see an issue with it again, just post it here.

I hope you dont have any more issues.

Experienced another restart! Restarts are happening more often for some reason...

EDIT: These last 2 days, I started playing RuneScape(MMORPG), using the client file. I noticed that nearly everytime I played it, my computer rebooted randomly! The Game uses Java... dunno if this helps, I just posted it... maybe it does!

I just found a Dump file... just one, using this software MajorGeeks.Com - Contacting Download Site the dump file was in this folder: C:\Windows\Minidump and was named: 040910-18922-01.dmp

What about uploading it?
