  1. I just got this computer off cragslist and it will randomly turn off with out a warning. i checked to see if the ram was bad and it is fine. I just installed vista so its not a op system problem. there is no virus. What i think is i need a better power supply. it has a quad core 2.5ghz. i went to the bios and turned off all the cores so it is only running on 2.5 and it seems to be working fine. please help guys cuz i want to be able to use all the cores.

    if you need any more information about my computer or what ever i would gladly tell you

    What is the make and purported wattage of your power supply? Give us your hardware specs.
