Random freezings on new OS install.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
  • XP Fully updated, latest drivers
  • Q6600 temps are under 55c (load), stock
  • 8500GT is stock, temps are reasonable
  • no viruses
  • Stable, no overclocks
  • Crashes randomly 3-10 hours in, CPU load independent (freezes running F@H or while idle)

Go.

Run Memtest86+ on your memory to rule it out. Could possibly be your PSU too. Stress test your system and examine your power supplies rails to see if there is any abnormal variations.

Do you have a bios installed for the motherboard you are using that fully supports quad cores? Perhaps a flash to a more up-to-date bios may clear up your issue. Do you have XP SP3 installed? It has the hotfixes for dual and quad cores so make sure you do that.
