Re: Somethings clearly wrong! Help appreciated
Might be RAM as well. RAM that goes bad can cause all kinds of problems, and it seems that once you run memory intensive programs that your PC shuts down. I would try to run some memory diagnostics and try to pin point if it's the RAM or not. If it is, then trouble shoot to find out which stick, or both. To do that just put one stick in, turn PC on, run the diagnostic tests, if you turn up OK, try the other stick and go from there.
