BSOD and Random Rebooting

  1. Hello. For the past month I have been having problems with my computer randomly rebooting or presenting a BSOD. I have seen many different errors such as 050, 08E, and so on. This typically happens while playing games, although it has been known to occurr at any time. Any help with this frustrating problem would be much appreciated. Thx.

    I can tell you right now your PSU is undersized.

    You need at least 350W - preferably 400.

    I thought the same thing for a while. So I swapped Power supplies with another one of my computers and the problem still persisted, (on a 400W power supply). The problem has also been a fairly recent development, but the computer has been unchanged for at least 6 months. Thanks for the comment though.

    It would appear that the problem has been solved. Thanks anyway. ;)
