Hello,

I'm trying to figure out why this computer keeps crashing; firefox crashes regular, at first I thought this was the problem, but I've tried Memtest86, and TuffTEST, I don't think it's the hardware, not sure about the core temps though. I emailed the seller and they said it was ok, but seems excessive to me. Thanks in advance.

I bought this computer a couple of months ago, everything seemed fine; I had a couple of days on it before I had to leave town for about a month (I installed Firefox, Thunderbird). It wasn't until I got back that I was able to start installing the rest of my software and using it daily.

I've reinstalled the operating system twice. I haven't over-clocked it. I got that 120 core temp playing Frets on Fire. I really don't know which free software to use to get a baseline.

Yes, both fans are working; there's one to vent the case and the cpu fan.

Wow, is this a standard fan or a cheap one? I can only imagine how cheap the CPU paste is:

Intel DTC-AAT03 E33681-001 here's a picture

Would overheating look like driver issues? I have some OCZ Freeze, but this fan looks a bit complicated and it's mostly plastic: no aluminum latch hook.

The motherboard is a:

When I said a base-line I meant that this is my first Dual Core PC; I have no idea what normal readings should look like or how to measure them: which FREE programs I can use to do this.

Thanks again.

I believe I solve the problem--haven't had any more system or browser crashes. A bad stick of RAM: Corsair Memory VS2GB800D2 2 GB PC2-6400 800Mhz 240-pin DDR2 Dual Channel Desktop Memory

Weird since I ran the Memtest86+ test, guess I didn't do enough passes.

After reading a few threads, I decided to try the taking out one of the RAM sticks, and less than a minute after the system booted it it crashed, then I swapped RAM and haven't had a problem yet.

Thanks for the assist.
