My system runs on WINDOWS 7 x64 bit, i have crash problems, while im working, everything runs normal, my pc suddenly crash, close and restart, i dont know what the problem is, does anyone have an idea of what's wrong?
i also had installed vista 64 bit, had the same problems
Prime 95 will give you clues if your hardware is failing through stress tests. If your system gives errors in less than 5 or 10 minutes, it means a part or parts of your hardware "fails" at ceratin points.
But it doesn't mean your hardware is broken. Each component could still be genuinely perfect and runs perfectly at the manufacturer's specs. All you might need to do is adjust your BIOS.
I'm not suggesting you go out and buy a new PSU. Your PSU might be okay and you would waste cash getting a new one. I'm saying do your research, add up how much power your system uses at idle and at full load, and compare that against your PSU's specs.
When you add up the power ussage of your components, don't forget anything, ie cd/DVD burners, aftermarket CPU cooler fan, case fans, etc....
well i tried the stability test v6, i couldn't understand how to use the prime95, but stability test v6 has it self the prime95 test.. so i tried it and the results...
my pc turns of when i start the test! or after 5 minutes, or in 2 minutes, every time is different... so, i cant understand whats wrong... i spent 1200 euro for my pc and something is wrong but i dont know what, and i dont know what to do to find out..
i think i should try to go to a computer technician
hi guys i think i found which the problem is! my motherboard supports Extreme Memory Profile (XMP 1.2) from Intel, when i boost the Ram the memory runs at 1600 MHz, with out the boost runs at 1066, only at 1066 my pc runs smoothly and dont crash, so probaly the motherboard has the problem, i think i should try to change the motherboard
