I'm hoping someone can help. For a long time I've been having the computer randomly restart or freeze; especially when backing up my computer to a network drive the computer freezes. I was informed it was the PSU; and so as of recently I replaced it with a brand new PSU unfortunatley the problem persists.

There are only two issues the GPU or RAM and I'm leaning on the advice given was wrong; although maybe it helped to some extent. Although to eliminate the problem competely I must replace all the RAM DIMMS ? Assuming the RAM DIMMS got destroyed but; when doing a Memory Test with MemTest x86 the results were error free.

What is the cause of this problem so as I can eliminate it, for good ?

More info on the problem; the screen will go black; the computer will restart or as mentioned when backing up to a NAS. The computer can operate for hours and hours sometimes before the screen goes black or restarts.

I've checked event log etc. If this helps, some programs that run in the notification area have occasional animated icons; when I must restart the computer those notification icons stop animating they stick.

What if for months I was over heating the CPU due to circumstances I couldn't resolve the issue immediately before applying a better CPU cooler and since then this problem has been persistant. Could RAM DIMMS have got destroyed; GPU or parts of the motherboard ? Prior to that, never experienced this problem.

I'm running Windows Memory Diagnostics; in hopes, it gives me an error. If there is no error then I don't know what hardware is failing I'm a a loss.

I was asking about the event log to understand if there is a report of something crashing while these processes are running, like a driver or a PCI resource conflict. Have you added or changed hardware since this issue raised?

It could be the network adapter, see if you can find a tool to make a specific diagnostic of it, as suggested before. However to be sure about the integrity of the card you should test another one or, if attached to a PCI interface, try to move it to another slot and see if it makes any difference (in case of resource conflict).
