  1. My pc randomly turns off now and again and also sometimes i get a blue screen, Its not a virus I'm sure of that, but i recently installed a 4gb ram ddr3, my pc is the "Emachine ET1862" and i currently have 6gb DDR3 Ram installed.

    I' have 2 slots free for ram so i moved my ram earlier to see if any changes, no freezes yet but maybe its a different reason? i always cleaned the fan but it was not that dusty.

    I installed "speedfan" and here are the results

    Did you have Blue Screens prior to installing the 4 gigs of RAM? Does the 4 gigs match the 2 gigs in timings and voltage requirements as the original 2 gigs?

    Have you tried uninstalling the 4 gigs to see if the BSOD's stop?

    I have not uninstalled the 4gig to see if the BSOD stops, Also how do I check this " Does the 4 gigs match the 2 gigs in timings and voltage requirements as the original 2 gigs"

    Edit: I've reinstalled Windows 7, To see if this helps.
