Step one: buy new RAM sticks (make sure it's the right kind, PC100, PC133, etc.)
Step two: open the case
(IMPORTANT!: GROUND YOURSELF BY HOLDING ONTO THE INSIDE OF THE CASE OR WEARING A STATIC BRACELET)
Step three: remove old RAM sticks
Step four: insert new RAM sticks
And that's it...5 minute task...and yet Best Buy charges 30 bucks to do it! Makes me wonder what kind of suckers those places thinks people are.

can you look up to your BIOS configuration, i think the problem is in the BIOS.

If you do not get any blue screen before it restarts then that probally means it is not your softwares fault or OS's. It is most likely to be that your processor is overheating. Try going into your BIOS settings--> then cpu chipset settings (or something similar)---> then set the alarm to be on and set it to about 60 degress or more. This should then show you that your cpu doesn't have enough cooling and it is simply set to restart when it overheats. Hope this helps!

If you can tell us the error the bluescreen is showing you, we could probably pinpoint the problem. However just by the information given I would say it is most likely a bad block in your memory. Just running out of memory will not blue screen a 2k machine, a bad block will everytime. Disable quickboot in your BIOS and allow the machine to do a full memory scan when it boots, that should tell you if there is a problem or not. If it reports no problems, then I would check the video drivers and/or the temperature of the video card's processor(if it has one).

My computer also reboots on its own sometimes usually when the system resources are below 5%. The fact that designing web pages takes up huge resources could also back this up. Upgrading ur computer would be a good move espically RAM seeing as its so cheap at the moment
