Im having a really wierd and awfully annoying problem with my system!! The situation is that i just got my computer upgraded!! a new motherboard (P5KPL-AM-SE) , 1GB DDR2 Ram , processor (P4 HT 3.0 GHZ) ..... the sound and video card are both onboard!! and the hard disks (both SATA) and the power supply are both old!! i just got this a week before and since then the problem is that my computer restarts or hangs just for no apparent reason but the wierd part is that it just does it once when I start the computer, and after its done hanging or restarting, it then runs normally for the rest of the time!! but this process is repeated when the computer is again turned on!!!! i mean it just does this once after i turn on the system everytime!! which is a really wierd problem!! and i just dont know what to blame!! What i suspect the most is that it is a motherboard driver issue!! but im not sure... or it cud be bad ram (but im again not sure) ..... and the last thing that i think cud be the possible suspect is the power supply !! But i cant seem to understand the fact that the problem happens only once a session!! i mean if it were a pSU probleem then isnt it supposed to happen frequently??
NOTE: I thought that it was a windows problem!! but i did a fresh install on it and the same problem is there!! and if u think its bad ram or something like that!! Then plz tell me how to check it!!
GUYs this is by far the most difficult problem im facing!! Im having such a difficult time with this problem and i havent had any luck on google!! !!! SO PLZ HELP.... THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!
The problem is that i think the guys wont understand the problem fully... i mean its an awkward and tricky problem!! And plus i got a college assignment and dont have that much time !! so if anyone has any clue!! plz point me out so that i can replace that exact suspect!!
Yeah thanks man!! but what i think is that he will just try something and if it works for a while !! he will say hes done but it just restarts randomly!! at any time!! sometime 10 mins sometimes 30!! Well anyways thanks for the help!
OK man ... it did some 15 billion operations on the RAM and found 0 errors ... i guess thats good and it was like 16 cycles!! and the RAM frequency is 800mhz!!! is this thing gonna work for all the other components too??
