    Default Odd computer crash!

    In the last day and a half or so, my computer has crashed in a weird way, three times. Everything will stop, and the screen will go black as the monitor is no longer receiving a signal. The HD activity light stays on pretty much full blast when this happens, and I have to hold the power button down to turn the system off. Now I know my way around a computer very well, and I have a clean system. I didn't install anything recently before this started happening. I just have no clue why it happens. Has this happened to anyone else, or has anyone heard of this happening? The last time it happened was about a half hour ago, after I had just started playing my MIDI keyboard. The other two times it happened, I wasn't doing anything though, just staring at the screen. The only thing I can find in common with all three times is that I had at least seven or eight Firefox windows open.

    Run Microsoft's new Spyware program and see if that finds anything.

    It could be a bad memory stick. Try this:
