I have a very strange problem... this is my machine, bought and mounted by parts:
- CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E4400 2GHz
- Motherboard: Asus P5B
- Memory: 2GB Kingston HyperX DDR2 800MHz (2 modules of 1GB each)
- Case: Antec NSK6500 (includes a 430W PS)
The problem is that when I power on the machine, I begin working with Windows XP SP2... everything is fine, I only use emule (downloading very fast, at 400KB/s) and Firefox to read some webpages.
Ok so... randomly, unexpectedly, boom! The screen goes blank, the monitor led changes from green to orange (as it was receiving no signal), and the machine becomes completely hanged up. I try to activate the Caps-Lock and the keyboard led is not responding, I push the reset button and it doesn't reset... solution: push the power button for 4 seconds and start again...
The CPU temperature keeps stable at 40C, there is no overclocking. All BIOS overclocking options are in auto, I have SpeedStep activated, and C1E activated.
Does anyone know a similar case or has an idea of what's happening?
I have thought about the power supply... but 430W for emule+firefox seems to me more than enough, what do you think?
By the way, my graphics card is an ASUS EN6600 Silencer (with no fan).
It's very strange... as the hangs occur randomly. I'll try the stress tests for the CPU and memory, although I've already tested the CPU with 3Dmark06, and the graphics tests were ridiculously slow, they were 2 or 3 FPS!! Is this normal? My NVidia card has the latest drivers installed.
I've just passed TAT and I think I have a little high temps... maybe this is the cause of hangs? could you give me an opinion? I want to clarify that I have NO overclocking. Everything is in auto, with the Intel original heatsink (and the thermic paste it had).
Wow those load temps are pretty high for an Intel processor.
I think those 3DMark06 fps' should be a bit higher with a Geforce 6600.
Those images say the processor is a Pentium M. But it's an E4400 as you said. Maybe the mobo thinks it's the wrong processor and puts too much voltage and that is the cause to those instabilities and high temps? Please someone correct me if I'm wrong.
