    It happened again. Seems to happen after 3 hours of run time. It's seems to still running when it happens cuz it still is logging events, but no display and seems not to respond to keyboard or mouse input.

    I am slowly taking hardware out of my computer. First it was the old hdd and now I just pulled a sounds card since I have an on-board card.

    Holly cow!!! Your running a lot of stuff with that PSU and a rather hefty video card on top of that. I'd say your suspicion is probably a good one. Lots of things can cause system restarts (If thats whats happening on occasion) but I'm guessing your parts are too much for a generic 500 watt PSU to handle. Is the PSU by chance one that came with a case? They tend to be real cheapies.....

    Na, bought it from newegg.com for like $45...so yea, it's a cheapy. It has cool lights though! :) I think I may of solved the problem. (Titus cross' fingers.) I noticed the PunkBuster service was starting up before crash's so I uninstalled that. Virus software had some error after checkpoint restore so I uninstalled that. Removed useless sound card (prob what did the trick.) Turned a display powersaver on Vistax64. All this and the computer has not "blacked out" in 8 hours! Yee haaaa

    Yea, deffinetly a power suply prob. It happened again but after like 9 hours this time. Then I played a game (i think it was rainbow six vegas 2) bumped up to 1600x1200 or somethiung with full everything and thing "balcked out on me.) I had four fans in the machine and I removed two and thus far I had no problems.

    I have to get a new power supply. :(
