I downloaded wcpuid from download.com to see my Mhz and cpu specs, etc. (its just a cool tool)
Extracted it to a directory on my C:\ and clicked on wcpuid.exe. WinXP reboots and restarts my machine. When I get back to my desktop xp gives me that dialogue saying how it recovered from a fatal error.
Anyway, don't know why it's doing this. My system is stable and every other program works fine. I'm sure im not the only one here. It's wcpuid 3.0.
winxp pro 5.1.2600
ati radeon 64ddr se w/ latest drivers
soyo k7v draon+
amd athlon 1600+ running @ 1554 mhz (148x10.5)
512mb of crucial pc2100 ddr @ cas 2
No other programs were installed at the time I was running this except for 3dmark2001. Was after a clean install of winxp.
If no one knows why could I get a link to a program that does the same things?
You are not the only one. I have had the exact same problem. I tried multiple versions of it, but they all did the same thing. This isn't probably comforting you much but at least you're not alone. If anyone else knows why this is happening I'd like to know too.

Wcpuid works just fine on my Pentium system with the Giga-Byte mainboard, but BSOD's the heck out of the Duron system with the Iwill board in both Win2K and WinXP. Go figure.
Perhaps this utility, <A HREF="http://www.winutils.com/" target="_new">TechFacts XP 1.70</A>, can be used as a replacement. But it's not free, unfortunately. I haven't used it, personally, so I can't attest to its power or reliability, or exactly what kind of information the program can display. But it's the thought that counts, right? :wink:
