Well I've had this problem for a while now, and I just really want my computer to work right.
e6300 - stock cooling(Temps don't seem too hot, but sometimes under load they get to like 60)
2gb DDR2 667 Patriot RAM
Gigabyte 965G DS3
Antec Smart power 450 watt psu
250 gig seagate
Basically, it runs pretty slow. Compared to my old AMD athlon, having the same start up programs, it starts up the same if not slower.
But my bigger problem is that sometimes it randomly restarts. I could be doing nothing, but usually when I do something like gaming. Like just today, I when to the Start --> search --> typed in something and it restarted.
Things I've tried are memtest, this just gets to a blue screen really briefly and restarts my computer. Even with changing up the ram posititions and using one at a time.
Any advice you can give me would be greatful. Thanks.
If you've updated all the drivers then you've got something tweaked in the settings that the PC just doesn't like....could be a graphics setting......hard to tell from where I'm sitting
If all else fails use "restore" to go back in time to an era where dinosaurs ruled the earth... 8O
