Lately my computer has been acting up by rebooting randomly, not running any of my games for a long period of time, giving me the "game.exe has caused a problem and needs to close" or in the case of HL2 "The memory could not be read". Blue screens seems to be very random, also somtimes when my computer would sit over night and go into "sleep" mode when I move my mouse to "wake" it was like it was froze, the light on my optical mouse wouldnt even turn on.
I have posted at tech-report and abit forms, so far no luck.
I have ran DLGDIAG from western digital to check out my hard drive, no errors there, so I decided to zero out my drive and re-install, during installation I got a blue screen pointing to one of the system files that caused the problem.
I ran memtest86 for:
2 hours - no errors
6 hours - no errors
currently going on 9 hours with no errors
So I think I can rule out my memory, and hard drive. I think that possible my power supply just might not be cutting it anymore. Are these kinds of problems cause by motherboards or processors?
