My computer keeps fully shutting down without warning or occasionally
locks up while I am in Windows. When it locks up in Windows, it
totally freezes up with no POST beeping or BSODs. My motherboard does
beep when I boot it up. I just replaced my power supply for an Enermax
350W Model EG365P-VE, so I don't think the power supply is the problem
anymore. The new power supply has two fans in it; one on the bottom
and one exhaust fan, so I don't believe there is a heat issue. I think
the motherboard may be at issue since I've tried switching the RAM
between slots, along with trying different sticks of RAM (2).

Am I right about this? Do you folks have any idea what else may be
