The problem Whenever I'm using something that uses Adobe Flash Player, my computer will randomly restart. No BSOD, just an immediate black screen restart. I received this computer from my friend when he bought a new computer, and he used to have the same problem. He didn't care to attempt to fix it, so I decided to take a whack at it. I have tried many, many things to fix this. I'm starting to believe it's a problem with windows itself and not flash player. I'm to the point where I'm about to make a vista disk and just fully re-install everything on my computer, but that's a bit drastic so I decided to seek help first. This is a list of potential fixes I've tried, I'm not sure if it's complete as I've been attempting to fix this for a while now. Every time I find something I think might work, my hopes get crushed accordingly. -disabling hardware acceleration for flash -uninstalling and re-installing flash -updating windows (running Vista sp2) -updating drivers -cleaning out my computer -re-seating all of my components -made sure the power supply was strong enough -turning down the number of cores my processor is using for my web browser, or any video games that use flash -downloading a heat monitor, CPUID HWMonitor to be precise I can't think of anything else, but I'm sure there are things I missed that I've tried. Most recently I discovered the sfc /scannow command. When I ran the command, it told me there were several windows files that were corrupt but it couldn't fix them. I have the cbs.log file, but I have no clue how to understand it. This is what leads me to believe something is wrong with my windows installation. Any information, files, specs and the like are available on request. I'm just not sure what information someone needs to debug the problem. I appreciate any help I can receive in solving this problem.
