    Hi, i came here before and found the help very useful

    my computer has some sort of problem, i'm not very gifted when it comes 2 computers so i'm wondering if someone can help

    every now and again (well several times a day now) my computer just randomly decides to reset itself, it will just go off in the middle of whatever I am doing and start up again. It has happend ever since the summer so i dont know if its something to do with the heat or not. It is mainly when I try watch videos on tihngs like youtube or listen to music on windows media player, usually when i have a number of activities going, but it has never shown this problem before.

    Also i just bought a game called Hitman: contracts and after about 2 minutes of play the game will crash and will show a blue screen with white writing on at the top there is usually a message of DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL also what i think may be a file is mentioned called TERRSENS.SYS although i'm not sure about the spelling.

    however i got the same problem today when i was watching a video but it just said IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, id didnt list a file name this time.

    it is becoming really frustrating for me and I can't work out the problem, any help is much appreciated thank you :)

    also my comp specs, if any more info is needed id be glad to try give it:

    Hey, Let's see why windows is restarting. Go to your Desktop, then Right Click on My Computer, then select Manage. Then on the left hand side select the Event Viewer, then select System. Go through the list and report back the errors.

    Is this computer left on to run all of the time?

    Does it get turned off every day?

    Either way this sounds like an overheating problem, I would suggest getting a can of compressed air and shutting down the computer and after it has been shut down for an hour with the side panel taken off I would use the compressed air to blow out the heatsink on the processor (Do not remove the heatsink from the processor for any reason) and also blow off the fan(s) anywhere in the inside of the computer. Take a vacuum cleaner and with the brush attachment place the brush attachment over the power supply opening on the back of the computer and turn on the vacuum cleaner and then use the compressed air to blow out from the back side of the power supply.

    When this is done wait an hour for any moisture to evaporate and put the side back on and turn on the computer.

    Do not use the vacuum cleaner inside the computer.
