I recently revamped my computer from a 2.4ghz Pentium 4 to a 2.4ghz Core 2 Quad, as well as 2GB RAM and 160GB more hard drive space. Since then, I've been getting 2 problems -

1. When I shut down the computer, the monitor I have registers "no signal" but the computer light is still on and the fan still whirring.
2. The computer randomly restarts, usually after being left on for a few hours.

When this first started happening, I took the computer in to a friend who does all our maintenance and after backing up essential files, reformatted the C drive. After re-installing what I needed, the computer ran fine for 3-4 days then the shutdown error occurred PC Smash. Finally, when the "system recovered from a serious error", I sent an error report to Microsoft and it lead me to a webpage that told me I had driver issues.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Open up your Control Panel and head over to Administrative Tools -> Event Viewer

Check all logs available and note especially the ones with a red error mark next to them. You can copy the errors by double clicking the entry and then click the button with two sheets of paper. Paste the error messages into Notepad and make sure there's at least one or two lines of space between them.

Collect a few of those errors and then come back and post the error logs. Also make sure you note what OS you're running.
