Well to start here are the specs
2x 60gb OCZ-Vertex 2 SSDs
1x Seagate Barracuda 7200 RPM 1.5TB harddrive
Asus m4n98td EVO am3 nvidia nforce 980a sli atx amd motherboard
G.Skill ripjaw series 8gb (2x4gb) DDR3 1333 (pc3 10666)
AMD phenom II x6 1090T black edition 3.2ghz
SLI'd GIGABYTE GV-N460OC-1GI GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP
Corsair H50 CPU cooler
Corsair 850w CMPSU-850TX psu

Windows 7 x64 ultimate edition installed on one of the SSDs

So my problem is every now and then the PC just black screens for no reason, it only started happening recently been running months with no problems what so ever. This morning however I woke up to find my PC still running, but unresponsive so i turned it off and It wouldn't turn back on. Waited 30 minutes tried again (no beeps, no post), reset CMOS, then it started to turn on for a few seconds, all fans would light up and then turn off, and it would do this over and over, I thought it might be the PSU, replaced the PSU (with an older one i had laying around) to try it out, booted right up, then I said hell with it I'll try the PSU i was having problems with, and it worked and is currently working still.

I know it will probably freeze again at some point as its only been a few hours, but Any idea what could be wrong? In my event view I find

eventlog 1101 "Audit events have been dropped by the transport.0 "

kernal-power 41 "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."

bugcheck 1001 "The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x00000116 (0xfffffa800cdee4e0, 0xfffff8800f882f10, 0xffffffffc000009a, 0x0000000000000004). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 062311-14430-01."

Sidebyside 63 "Activation context generation failed for "e:\program files (x86)\spybot - search & destroy\DelZip179.dll".Error in manifest or policy file "e:\program files (x86)\spybot - search & destroy\DelZip179.dll" on line 8. The value "*" of attribute "language" in element "assemblyIdentity" is invalid"

Also gave this error message the last time it rebooted: Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1033

Additional information about the problem:

Dunno how much this'll help, but bugcheck 0x00000116 is a card error. Did you update your drivers recently? You might want to use a tool to remove all old drivers, reinstall the latest, and see if that helps. Card overheating might cause that too, but don't quote me on that one.

The power supply may be over heating or getting ready to quit or you have an outside power spike which shut the computer down and it tried to restart by itself. Make sure to have a good power strip to plug computer into to prevent spikes in power.

I did update my video card drivers, but I was having this problem before i Updated them, its been having this problem for about a week, I did not however use a tool to remove the old ones. I'll do that now see if it helps.

I'm considering ordering a new Power supply just to be on the safe side

Just used the 3d guru driver cleaner tool to remove my nvidia drivers while in safemode and reinstalled the newest, sli is still enabled lets test it

Still No luck with the driver update, Any other ideas? Should I just go ahead and buy the Power supply?

Try another power supply from a friend if you can or take it to a computer shop and have it tested.. If not then I would buy a new PSU. That would be up to you.
