Default Re: Random Restarting

Hey! Sorry if I am posting in the wrong area, I'm not the biggest computer guy and I am having some issues.

I own a Gateway Intel Premium laptop with a processor T4500 running on windows 7.

Randomly my laptop will restart, an unexpected error has occurred... I went to my logs and found this.

Log Name: System
Source: Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power
Date: 17/07/2011 1:34:42 AM
Event ID: 41
Task Category: (63)
Level: Critical
Keywords: (2)
Computer: Tyler-PC
The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.
Event Xml:
<Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event">
<Provider Name="Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power" Guid="{331C3B3A-2005-44C2-AC5E-77220C37D6B4}" />
<TimeCreated SystemTime="2011-07-17T05:34:42.593217700Z" />
<Correlation />
<Execution ProcessID="4" ThreadID="8" />
<Security UserID="S-1-5-18" />
<Data Name="BugcheckCode">0</Data>
<Data Name="BugcheckParameter1">0x0</Data>
<Data Name="BugcheckParameter2">0x0</Data>
<Data Name="BugcheckParameter3">0x0</Data>
<Data Name="BugcheckParameter4">0x0</Data>
<Data Name="SleepInProgress">false</Data>
<Data Name="PowerButtonTimestamp">0</Data>

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I think it's a hardware problem.

CPU temp seems OK. Despite the memory check passes when the computer starts, you can still have a bad memory
