    A light is flashing... am I okay?

    My sata light is flashing, it's orange and flashing. Should I be worried? My pc randomly shuts off as well, already ordered new psu + new ram. Hoping replacing those will fix my problem.

    The SATA light flashes with activity, this is normal. List all parts and your configuration for the shutdown issue please..

    8 gb ram (sector 5, 2x4)
    32 bit windows 7

    evga gtx 260 video card
    750 fatlity PSU

    Already bought a new psu, switched out the older one
    My new ram just came in. Just switched out the ram... I need help guys. Could it be my motherboard? :/

    Edit : My last bet would be to replace my graphics card. :/ Any possibility to get another motherboard through this site? I'll send this one back for a replacement maybe? ... i'm QQ bros...
