Random shutdowns

Gateway / Lx6810-01
February 17, 2010 at 22:02:46
Specs: Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium, 2.336 GHz / 8190 MB
So for the last week I've been experiencing
random shutdowns.
I'm aware of the thermal issue that tends to
cause this with the LX6810, I've already had
that. I fixed it with a new graphics card and a
case fan.
I don't think that this is a thermal issue, at
least not with the GPU; for one, the shutdowns
often occur during tasks that aren't especially
graphics-intensive (web browsing, word
processing, etc.), and for another thing, I
installed SpeedFan to monitor system
temperatures and they're not getting out of
normal ranges.


If I left out any important details, let me know.

It may be the RAM Memory. Please download Memtest86 from the following location: http://www.memtest86.com/memtest86-... ...and burn it to CD with some ISO burner (you can find some on Google). Then, boot from the cd and see if it finds any errors.

Of course....if the PSU is too weak to withstand the power consumption requirements, the result is unstable system....

Right, sorry. The new graphics card is an NVIDIA GeForce 210.

The only reason I don't think it's a power supply issue is that I
hadn't changed anything recently before the shutdowns started.
Unless, of course, the power supply is failing,
