  1. i'm fixing a computer for a friend of mine and it keeps restarting randomly whilst he uses it. i've copied the minidump files below so i'm hoping someone could tell me what it is that's causing this problem as i'm not 100% sure how to correctly read these logs.
    I've initially thought it was an over heating problem so i replaced the power supply and i'm pretty sure its not a ram issue, but the problem still persists. New RAM was put in a few months ago but has been working fine.

    The computer has been working fine until recently.

    Your help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Inside the three MiniDumps:

    Try Memtest on your Ram

    It could be bad RAM or some software problem such as a driver. Boot it up in safe mode and use it to see if still happens, if it does I would consider replacing the RAM again. If it does not than there is definetely some software/OS issue.

    my computer just randomly restarts while im on it.. When I click view error this is what it says..

    The files that caused the dump are:
    Temp\WERF104.dir001/mini092308_05.dmp
    Temp\WERF104.dir001/sysdata.xml


    I believe I also had another one that was
    WER8a45.dir00/mini0918_04dmp
