whats your operating system. with windows 7 i would run the built in troubleshooters first to see if they come up with anything. any recent hardware or software changes? has this been ongoing or did it just start?

All that aldan asks, plus run MemTest to check all your RAM is stable. Are you running 2 modules or 4?

Try running your pc with only one module at a time to see if it starts up any differently. If a faulty module is the cause you'll quickly identify which one.

Alternatively, you can run MemTest. MemTest is a free memory diagnostic tool which you can download from here:
http://www.memtest.org/
Download the .iso file and burn it to a CD or run from a floppy (Ahhh, such nostalgia). Boot from the CD and it will automatically run through a series of tests on your PC's memory. Be patient, it can take a long time, though you'll quickly see errors being logged if a module if faulty.
If a module is faulty, you'll have to change it for an identical one of the same type, though good Corsair RAM has a lifetime warranty.

go into the control panel and click on administrative tools,then click on event viewer to view any errors logged.if there is a lot you may want to clear the logs and see what pops up next time your computer does its restart. with each error comes a description of what it means. post the error in your next post.
