PC Restarts (minidumps attached)

  1. Over the past week or so i have been getting more and more unexplained system restarts, now blue screen, no warning the PC will just restart itself.

    There is no one time that it keeps doing it, it is totally random apart from today when i tried to load up a game and each time i loaded it the system restarted.

    I know the basics of a PC but when it comes to Windows Minidumps i havent a clue what im looking for so if anyone could help resolve the program it would be much appreciated.

    I have attached the two minidumps which happened today.

    Thankyou in advance.

    Inside the 2 MiniDumps:
    Can be your AntiVirus or personal Firewall causing issues
    Can be that you need to update all your Motherboard Drivers
    Can be that you need to run Memtest (for 7 Passes) on your Ram

    Ok thanx alot, i will look into them.

    I have in the last couple of hours actually purchased and installed 2gb of new memory and it has been fine since then so maybe it was the old memory and it will be fine now (fingers crossed).
