ok now the system crashes with any of the four sticks of ram in. i have now loaded up windows in safe mode. everything seems fine - well, at least i have been in windows for 5 minutes without a crash!

i am thinking this is software problem now. i went to a lan the other day and had my virus checker off so i could file share. do you think i could have got a virus somehow?

allthough saying that, panda virus checker cant find any problems when i do system scan.

arghhh! this is driving me crazy... what should i do?

Try updating all your drivers. First go with the video card, chipset and sound card. Have you made any recent changes to the computer? A virus wouldn't neceseraly do that so i highly dought that its a virus. Do you have another stick of ram, something different then what you have now so you can try.

Good luck and keep us posted.

1) Right click on "My Computer".
2) Click on "Properties".
3) Select the "Advanced" tab.
4) Click the "Settings" button under "Startup and Recovery".
5) Under "System Failure" remove the check from the "Automatically Restart" checkbox.

Next time Windows encounters a problem it will give you an error message rather than restarting.
Note down the error message, restart, and then look it up on Google or in Microsoft's database.

It sounds to me very much like a PSU problem... It sounds like either you have too little voltage on your +12v rail, or your PSU isn't supplying your system with well-regulated electricity. I may be wrong, but to indicate or eliminate the PSU as a potential problem, please would you specify what make and model 550W PSU you have and how many volts you have on your +12v rail.

Thanks!

maddrfookenstein sez> So, how did it go? Just curious if you disconnected your video card, (you said you took out all ram) ram again, jumpered the CMOS with the battery out (and of course the power off--cord disconnected, and monitor off)...then reinstalled vid, ram, battert and CMOS jumper to first position. Then turned on computer, monitor, went into BIOS to see if there was a SMART error, and checked all settings [some or all of] which went back to default probably...then let windows boot up normally. Anyway, let me know how it went. thanks
and Good Luck!

30amps should be enough to run all your kit I would have thought... Even a fairly generic PSU would probably be OK with that amperage... Hmmm, I'll have to give it some more thought. In the mean time, try running some registry cleaning/fixing programs and try scf /scannow. Also might be worth checking for adware and viruses as well... It also might be worth clearing the CMOS manually, just in case any BIOS settings are causing the problem.

I would have thought it would be unlikely to be a software problem, as the only thing you have done recently was install new hardware, not software. It may be, as you suspect, that some damage has accidentally occurred during the install process...

It could just be something really simple that we're all missing, so give it a while before RMA'ing your motherboard.
