    Computer Restarts... Randomly

    After I installed RAM (I have un-installed it to see if it would fix th issue too) to my fourth PC3200 slot, my computer starts to restart every so often, it's getting on my nerves.

    Other than get a new computer, what do you people suggest I do? I've tried to see if it was an OS problem too, but it wasn't. This also happened in Windows.

    Better yet,

    Here are the results of Memtest before memtest crashed (yes, it CRASHED):

    Sorry for the huuuuge file size and resolution. This was with all four slots having a PC3200 Stick in them. The system wouldn't boot properly if I had all four in them, but this time it did. I tried booting with the liveCD with all four filled, but the liveCD crashed before it could allocate all of the memory. So I removed the 256 MB Stick from the fourth slot, and now the liveCD boots fine. However, I have yet to experience my random shut-down as it only occurs after about30-50 mins of computer use.

    Right now the first three slots are filled, meaning it isn't exactly the RAM at fault, it may be the slots themselves.
