Processor - AMD Athlon 2600+
Ram - 512mb pc2700 (2 X 256mb)

Default Re: Crashing Computer.

did you put the old ram in and did it work.

Never heard of your mobo or manufacturerer that could be a biggie.

Umm. just make sure that your old ram works and if not then it could be some static that was released on your mobo.

People have to be more lucky like me. I have spilled water on my hds. dropped them. spilled metal filings on my mobo. Spilled water on it.

One time i wasnt luckky is breaking a chip off my vid card. getting it fixed right now though.

Just reply back with that info and we will know if its your ram or possibly your mobo instead.

Question No still Have same problem

i took out the new ram and the computer is still restarting whenever it want to. This is realy realy driving me mad i can not get any work done.

now the computer comes up with a message sometimes after a restart that the computer has recovered from a serious System error something to do the ITP, also any time i do a full system scan using the virus scanner the computer get so far and either restarts the comp or just crashes. I tryed running in safe mode and the same thing happens.

could this be a result of a virus ?

Thanks in Advance

Sounds like possibly a faulty mobo.

But you will want to check for viruses and update before.

Its most likely your mobo though.

Look for a MSI K7N2 I have had good success. Make sure it has atleast a 333 fsb on it.

You can use pricewatch.com to find a good price.
