My Dell Inspiron 1750 with Vista randomly shuts down and restarts. This happens mostly when I am running games. Is this an overheating issue?

    Renielsen,
    Here's a link for Memtest http://www.memtest.org/#downiso

    Choose the Pre-Built Bootable ISO (zip)

    Once you've downloaded, unzip and burn the ISO file to a blank CD. Boot from the CD when you want to check your memory. As Evongugg pointed out this could be caused by many things, just listen for the sound of your fan, for example, and if you don't hear it, than you computer is definitely going to overheat quickly.
