    I have just recently built 2 new computers, same exact components about a month ago. One of them works great, the other restarts randomly usually when installing something. The windows error files are mini.dmp and sysdata.xml and when I send the error report it tells me thats its a hardware error with either : CPU, Motherboard, RAM, or Power Supply. I have replaced all and still have the random restarts. I have run memtest86 with no errors. I've recently taken it somewhere to do a hardware diagnostics test and they've had it on for 5 days without any restarts under 100% stress loads. The only differences I can think of is that they have it connected to a different monitor and its via VGA as opposed to digital like I've had it every time. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Have you checked the event logs?

    What do you mean by event logs? Are you talking about related problems already posted in these forums? I have looked for hours at numerous similar problems and nothing has worked. Or is this some kind of log with the computer itself?
