My computer will freeze at random intervals, and sometimes freeze as it is loading windows. Although this has never happened before, from other peoples problems I suspect it may be that my RAM is broken. Any help?

It could be the PSU, last week a friend of mine had the same problem but it happened only when it used the HDD's intensively. I told him I'm 99% sure it's the PSU... and it was :). I don't know in your situation, but it is a possibility.

If you can get your hands on some ram that you know work, substitute the ones you have for those and run some tests, if it still doesn't work try the same with the PSU (or just power th HDD, DVD-ROM from another PSU) and run some test. Then tell me what was wrong ( i think it's the psu :D )
