Okay so recently I've been having problems with my laptop rebooting itself when I didn't ask it to do so. I have noticed that it seems to have started after I installed another 512MB of ram (pretty sure it was installed correctly, the computer is aware of the upgrade to 1024MB ram). That *could* be the problem but it might also be that I've been using more ram-consuming applications recently now that I got it upgraded.
Anyway it seems to reboot mainly when large sections of the hard drive are being moved or added to other parts (ie moving large files) of the hard drive. I suppose there's also the possibility that my laptop is overheating since ram-hogging processes I assume tend to heat up the unit.
Anyone had this problem before? I mean I was defragging and also downloading 3 bit torrents (at fairly fast speeds, total > 100kb/s) while I was taking notes in class and without warning... reboots. Any help would be great. How can I tell if my unit is overheating?
