    I hate ASUS! I don't have the minidump decoder software installed on this Vista system yet... Try clearing the CMOS and load the failsafe defaults. Have you messed with memory timings yet? You may have to do so with this ASUS motherboard

    Update:
    minidumps include NTOSKRNL.exe and of course, MEMORY CORRUPTION Make sure the memory you chose for this motherboard is compatible with the board. Some motherboards are picky about the memory you place in them

    yet another example how Asus is picky with ram. I seem to remember very recently someone arguing with me on this one!

    Problem fixed, it is a faulty RAM.

    I have reseted the COMS and no more random restarts.

    Thx for the help :p

    So was it replacing faulty RAM or resetting the CMOS that fixed the problem?

    I have replaced the RAM & reseted the COMS.

    It was the RAM causing issues at 1st place, I actually took the PC to the shop & tested there.
