    Welcome to the forums :)
    Check the event logs for any possible events related to the problem (specifically those labeled "kernel")

    Could it be an overheating problem? You may need to clean dust out of your heatsink/other areas of your PC.
    Post back :)

    If you're not getting BlueSOD's, if you can somehow download DriverView and run it in safe mode, save and attach the .txt file list. We may be able to help if you've got any driver problems.
