if i am on my computer for about 6 hours doing various thing on my desktop, the computer restarts. this time is less if i am playing games. then when i load unto windows again, it restarts in only half an hour, then 10 minutes. eventually it keeps resetting with a blue screen while windows is loading and i have to leave the computer off for around 3 hours before getting into windows again.

i have
850mhz duron with fan
gigabyte ga-7zx-h
geforce 2 mx with heatsink
and my power supply has a fan, obviously.

do you think a lack of cooling could be the problem? because i once took off the case and placed a deskfan very close to the computer to cool it down and it made no difference.

I would download motherboard monitor 5 and see if it works with your monitor. You can check the temperatures with that, or as soon as it restarts go into the BIOS and see the temps.

What version of windows?
