    Cool chromium crashes pc.

    about 3 months ago i got a new (to me) pc-pentium D 2.8GHz, 2GB ram to replace my old pentium III 500MHz, 384MB ram. on the new pc (this didn't happen on the old one), if i use chromium or the google earth download my computer ,at random, powers down completely (does not go through shut down,just goes off like a power cut). then about 2 seconds later it comes back on by itself and boots up. my first thought was overheating, but i have been using a monitor to check that and this is not the case,so i haven't a clue what it is.has anyone else had similar problem.it only happens when using chromium or google earth. would be interested to hear your thoughts. thanks, paul.

    So it has 2GB RAM?

    I would run memtest86 (it's in the boot menu) for a few hours and see what it says.
