Windows computer crashing after start up
Built a computer for my parents and been having a hell of a time with it. Heres the story:
First of all the specs:
1 x GIGABYTE gz-ph2a3 Black SGCC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
1 x ASRock N68-S UCC AM3/AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
1 x LOGISYS Computer PS480D 480W ATX12V Power Supply
1 x AMD Athlon II X2 245 Regor 2.9GHz Socket AM3 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor ADX245OCGQBOX
1 x CORSAIR 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Desktop Memory Model VS2GBKIT667D2
1 x Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3160318AS 160GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
1 x LITE-ON CD/DVD Burner - Bulk Black SATA Model iHAS124-04 - OEM
Installed windows 7 basic on it, everything worked fine for about a week or so then started freezing up about 30 seconds after getting to the desktop. after trying to get that working I decided to put windows xp professional on it instead, again the computer worked fine for a week or so then started to do the exact same thing.
I checked the ram with memtest and it came back with errors so I sent the ram back and got a new set, ran memtest on it came back fine after 5 passes, started up the comp and is still freezing after 30 seconds or so on the desktop.
Any Ideas what else I can try doing?
