Does the computer pass memtest86 (memtest.org) memory test
error free ? Perhaps adjusting the memory timings, increasing
Vdimm (memory voltage supply), or reducing the processor clock
(FSB) is required.
You might also get a copy of Prime95 (mersenne.org), as that
is a good test for both the processor and the memory. Run
Prime95 "Torture Test", after memtest86 has shown the memory
to be error free. Prime95 contains some kind of consistency
check, and Prime95 recognizes when a mathematical calculation
is incorrect. An error in Prime95 indicates either a processor
or a memory error.
The third test, is to run some version of 3DMark (originally
from site www.madonion.com, but now known as futuremark.com).
3DMark will push a lot of data through the video card, and
a crash in 3DMark will indicate a problem with the AGP or
video card. I like 3DMark2001SE (possibly available from an
archive site somewhere), as it doesn't need the latest
version of DirectX.
Once you've collected some test data, post your problem details
again. Include more details as well, such as 2.8GHz 512KB cache
FSB800 and the size and brand of ATX power supply you are using.
