computer crash, need help

Hi All,

I have experienced a few crashes recently where during an operation,
downloading from newsgroups or rendering a 3d image my laptop crashes. One
minute its working fine then I hear a little hard drive noise then the
laptop switches itself off, and I have to power on about 20 times before the
computer verifies the ram and boots up. I've owned this laptop for over a
year and hove only recently been experiencing this problem, in the last 2
weeks or so, I am using the same software I always had, newsbin pro 4.1 for
downloading and autocad, 3d max and architectural desktop for rendering and
modelling. My laptop spec is pentium 4 2.6ghz, 1gb RAM, 64mb ati mobility
radeon 7500 integrated graphics card, running Windows XP Pro SP1 plus all
the usual.
Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated, this is really
starting to piss me off, I can't tell what the problem is, my best
assumption is the programs use too much RAM then the laptop cuts out,
because of the problem it has when rebooting after this happens when it
can't verify the RAM but then why the hell would it do that? I have 1GB RAM
and I'm not doing anything different than normal. The first time this
happened I reformatted and reinstalled everything hoping that it would sort
it, but it didn't. I was hoping to download a program called RAM Rocket for
managing and defragging my RAM but maybe I don't need it, plus it isn't
free.

Thanks for any help I do receive on this problem, if you want to know more
please e-mail personally, but bear in mind that when it comes to the
workings of a pc I really don't know much so I may not give good answers.

kind regards
Mark
