comment Computer resets when put under load
@msw: Worse, I have cats. I actually bought a huge after-market heat sink for mine (because I hate the fan noise) so when the system fans kick in, I know that I need to clean the heat sink. You're right though: my first thought would be heat if I hadn't added any new hardware, but when it's other people, I generally assume that they have added hardware and don't think that it's "relevant" when they report their mysterious new problem.

If it was a RAM problem I'd expect to see bluescreens not just random resets...

+1: Sounds like a power supply problem for me. Theoretically it could be heat, but I tend to lean away from that explanation unless the machine is overclocked (though I'd make sure the heatsink isn't caked in dust or anything obvious).
