  1. Hey,
    Can someone please help me with this problem.
    Every time I use my computer for some intensive work like rendering a video my computer switches off automatically. However this doesn't happen normally. It only happens when i am converting a video from one format to other or rendering something. I have already installed 2 fans. Also got my processor fan cleaned up. I have a 1.5GB ram,Pentium 4 D865GBf board.
    Please help me sort this out.
    Thanks.

    Start by running Memtest86 to test your memory. What is the power supply's wattage rating? This may be a power supply issue too...

    Video encoding is one of the most cpu intensive tasks out there. If you run an over clocked system, it is a good indication of a bad/unstable OC.

    1.46 v-core? Have you tried running your system at normal clock-speed to see if the problem is still there?
