    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Check your system for possible overheating.

    Also, check that your psu is putting out enough power for your system.

    Take a look at this PSU Calculator.

    Run Memtest86+ to check your ram.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    thanks for the links howard_hopkinso, I'll run them tonight but I dont think its the PSU, It's a Hyper Type R 580W Modular ATX2.2 PSU. I dont think the system is overheating as there are 2 120mm case fans running at 2000rpm all the time, but I will check.
    Thanks again
