hi. i'm new in this forum but i'm hoping that someone can help me with my problem. i had this problem that last time i was doing large format photo editing using photoshop about 300 to 600 dpi and 100 to 200MB per file. the situation when wrong after that when i ran photoshop espesially or other application as well, my pc just reboot without any warning. then i reformat and install new os. during installation also it seems i can't smooth install. i kept switching my hard drive and finally i had a smooth installation. but still sometimes my pc just reboot without any warning, just not as frequently as before. i think the problem caused by the hard drive. anyone? thanks.

Sounds to me like it may actually be your memory that is going bad. If you have more than one stick, try each one, one at a time to see which, if any, give you errors. If you only have one stick, you maybe can borrow some from a friend?

Hope this helps.
