Hey guys i am running in to a problem, My computer keeps restarting, usually when i am running a video game or something of that nature, every so once in a while it will restart and give me 1 long beep and 3 short beeps which i assumed would be a memory problem so, i then changed the memory and im still getting the same problem. I know my cpu isn't overheating because it sits about 40c even under the heaviest loads. So with that said i am kinda stumped on what i should check next .

AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+

What PSU? Chances are if it's a cheap PSU that is the cause. Depending on the board, this beep code could also be video issue.
