I am having random restarts in addition to random program crashes (usually IE, Firefox, Mozilla Thunderbird and Dreamweaver MX). The programs tend to crash without warning – they just disappear!
This is getting worse recently since I added 512 RAM. But it was happening when I had 512 RAM. One tech told me I probably had motherboard problems. He suggested that perhaps the memory slots on the motherboard were the problem. Another said I should clean up the hard dive.
So I reformatted my hard drive, reinstalled everything. And the same things are happening.
Should I change motherboard? Or does anybody have another idea?
