I have a new build that seems to run fine. I ran Prime95 on it for about an hour no problems, but if it sets at idle for an excessive amount of time. sometimes overnite or over a weekend it locks up. I included the motherboard, cpu and ram compenents at the bottom.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what to try. Virtualization is enabled, Cool 'n Quiet is disabled.

Thanks, Jason

Test the memory with memtest86+.
Tell us about your power supply.
What is your video card?

If you are overclocking, test with Prime95 overnight (6-24 hours).

I ran memtest86+ and it passed just fine.

I'm not overclocking it and I'm using the onboard graphics

i can take the case cover back off to see which PSU it has it came with the case.

Thanks,

Try using a video card.

I may end up putting one it, since this is just an office computer. Was looking at the 9600GSO for $54 - $20 rebate. Also I put (2) 1GB sticks of Patriot DDR2 800 in it and it seems a lot better. Only locked up once after running for about 60 hours continously. Instead of 3 or 4 times a day that it was doing with the 1GB of Crucial.
