Hello, I have just build a new desktop. Installed Windows 7 64x ultimate. Every time i try to play music or do something that takes some processing power or mem it automatically restarts every time. Seems to load slow and feels like im running a p133 lol.. Any suggestions the causes? Jared All the temps in the case are normal. Here is the set up G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB), CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V, HITACHI Deskstar 5K3000 HDS5C3020ALA632 (0F12117) 2TB 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5", AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition, ASUS M4A87TD EVO AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard, EVGA 512-P3-N802-AR GeForce 8800GT Superclocked 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI.

Try setting your ram manually. Check the voltage specs; you can run up to 1.65 volts.

Can you do ANYTHING with this machine?

Try unplugging and replug all power connectors on the mobo.

try the simplest thing first. remove one ram module > does problem persist? if yes then put that one back in and remove the other ram module. you have now found weather or not you have a faulty ram module and you can move from there. No point assuming its this or that, try a methodical approach.

theres no point pulling off a ram module then putting it back again clown! that does not fix a faulty ram, reply with some sense dude.

i say go to the bios set up and set the memory voltage to automatic, if it does not fix the problem
you get the 1 pc of ram module, find out how many volts it is, if it is labeled 1.5 volts then go to bios setup, then to performance tab, change it to manual
set the memory voltage to 1.5 volts, sometimes the motherboard default setting is not exactly the same as the memory violtage of the ram, like what i have experience, same problems like you have, i set the voltage to exactly 1.5v because the setup is making it 1.55v, then everything went fine.
if still does not fix the problem your 650w power supply could be the problem.
