Now it sounds like it's a Windows software issue. How far does it get before it reboots?

Uninstalled a memory module,IT HAS STARTED WORKING.
Hope this is not a short term thing as I have update everything and at the moment I can switch computer off and it will switch back on.
I now need to close case and put back to were it belongs as it is in middle of floor at moment.
Fingers Crossed.
