  1. Preferably a recent issue, i'm not sure what's up... so basically i had 2 Ragnarok Online clients opened, foobar2000 playing some music, irc, firefox open... then while i was playing, computer suddenly freezes (sounds also freezes into a loop playback or just stays on one second) then moments later (around 2minutes) reboots. Happened thrice.

    There was no flash of dump or whatsoever... so i have no idea what this computer's problem is.

    Computer Specs
    Intel Core 2 Duo
    2GB Transcend RAM
    8500GT Inno3D Video Card PCI-E

    Perhaps you should check CPU temperature.

    CPU Temperature was around 49-50 something (Celcius maybe?)
    Ambient Temp is 83
    CPU Fanspeed is 1080s RPM...

    Anything?

    *Edit*

    I asked if it was a reoccurring issue but :O it's stated in the first post that it has happened more than once, sorry.

    Try testing your RAM with Memtest86.
