I have upgraded to 8GB of RAM and it´s working better now but my computer shuts down sometimes and i don´t know why.

It only happens with this project.

Any clues?

Your memory upgrade might be unstable--hardware problem. Burn to blank CD a program called MemTest. Then, boot into it, and let it run for 24 hours. There should be no errors. If there are, then you're memory is bad.

Mem speed setup on AMD-cpu MB is more critical than on Intel-cpu MB.
Check careful the memory timings or, if available, the mem. profile.
Eventually try to reduce the mem clock.

Well, i lowered my CPU usage to 60% and sometimes it jumps up to 68-70% so i think that if i run 100% my CPU goes over to overheat and then my computer shuts down for security reasons. So now its working better.
