Hei.

There is something wrong with my computer. It is very unstable. I have runned a few test programs, like the PC Mark 2002, 2001, and 2003 Pro. After a few minutes the screen turns blue, and the machine reboot. Do you know what components which make this "error"?

Thanks!

As crash is implying, that could be down to a whole load of things.... so:

Is this PC new, or recently upgraded in <i>any</i> way? or has it worked ok for a while but suddenly started having these problems?
What power supply does your computer have? (make & Wattage rating)
What are the temperatures of the System AND the CPU?
Was this a brand new build, or did you simply upgrade an old computer and use the old hard disk without re-installing Windows?

Sadly none of us have the necessary psychic powers to deduce your problem from the information you've given.

What is you Vcore and Vdimm currenty set at? May have to jump them up a bit. If you havent reinstall windows yet, that also would be a good idea, especially if this was a partial upgrade from an older mobo.

Vcore, 1,625(I have increased it by 0.25V), my memory has 2.6(i think). I have newly installed winXP for a third time.

Ohh.. Sorry. The PC i new, and I have build it myself. The "system" goes like a "rollercoaster". Most of the time, it is stable, but suddenly, the machine become unstable, and may restart itself.

It got a Chieftec 360W. The tempertature is about 50 - 60C(ok?).

I have heard that there is some bugs with this motherboard. I bought 2x TwinMOS TwiSTER 256MB CL2.0(not TWINX), may this be a problem(that the memory isn't TWINX?).

Thanks.

So noone has experienced the same problems?

What do they all do?

Do you got some suggestions Crashman(I know that you are an expert on computers).

Thanks.

That too low of a vcore. Put that up to 1.7-1.75 when OCing and give that a whirl.

But I have not been OCing. But maybe I should increase voltage, as see if that help?


Thanks.

If not OCing then put the vcore at 1.65 or 1.7. That is wat AMD rated the chip for unless you have the mobile core.

What exactly are your system specs? particularly Graphics card, and number of hard disks, CDROMs, fans, etc. your PSU might not be enough if you have lots of high-end stuff in your system. List as much as possible.

I wouldn't bother increasing the Voltage, if you're not trying to overclock then your motherboard should pick up the correct voltage and use that, which should work fine.

You can use something like motherboard monitor 5 (just do a google for it, it's free) to monitor your temperatures & voltages & log them to a file, so after a crash you can see if temperatures hit a high point (inadequate cooling) or your voltages drop below ~5% of what they should be (insufficient power supply).

50-60 degrees C is quite hot for an athlon at stock speeds. Do you have any case fans?

Did you load the asus mobo drivers (esp agp)?
February 26, 2004 8:20:26 PM

Yes, I have installed all the drivers.
February 26, 2004 8:27:07 PM

I got the following. AMD Athlon XP2800+ 333Mhz Barton, ASUS A7N8X-DELUXE motherboard socket A, 2x TwinMOS TwiSTER 256MB CL2.0 memory. Plextor CD-RW 12x/10x/12x(its old). I got one Maxtor S-ATA 120GB 7200RPM 8MB cache, and a floppy.
And my graphic card is a PowerColor Radeon 9600 PRO(BRAVO).

I will try the software you suggested.

Thanks.
