    Lately when I play music or look at a myspace page with music, my computer shuts down and reboots. Why????

    Have a look in the error log to see if there are any clues in there, it may be a hardware failure or a corrupt codec\driver or even a virus.

    Your getting a bsod (blue screen of death) but windows will automatically restart when this occurs so if you have a fast pc you will not see the message. Pressing f8 at bootup will let you start windows in a mode which make you see the blue screen and find out information from it.

    As you say it happens whenever music wants to be played makes me think you may have dodgy sound drivers. Try getting new drivers for your sound card.
