About the same temp as I listed earlier, around 30 cel. Actually, a little less, about 27.

I still think it's a RAM issue. Right Click my computer, select propreties. In the advanced tab, click startup and recovery. Look for something saying Automatically reboot computer. Uncheck it. Now, mess with it until that BSOD comes. Tell me what is says,

Well so far so good, it hasn't restarted yet. And everything else seems fine. Sorry, but, you're going to have to tell me what BSOD means..

So I think that stopped it from restarting, I guess i'm going to go onto the memtest site...

I'm still a little worried about my computer...

the bsod is the Blue Screen of Death, when your computer crashes and restarts you usually get it and it tells you why the computer failed.
