I was wondering if anyone could help me here.
I just recently bought a new computer from a company online that builds custom systems and I've only had it for a few weeks, but ever since I've got it, it's been completely locking up at random times.
I've tried to pinpoint the exact time, but to no avail. Now I contacted my tech support, but they told me to try running the computer with another DIMM of DDR RAM, the problem is that I don't have an extra DIMM because I just upgraded to this system and don't currently have any extra components. I am fairly sure it is a hardware problem, but don't know where to begin.
here's a quick overview of my system:
Motherboard - ABit KG7 RAID
AMD Athlon XP 1700
512 MB DDR RAM
40 GB Western Digital HD
Video Card - Asus 8200 Deluxe GeForce 3
Sound Card - Sound Blaster Live! 5.1
NIC - 3Com 3C905B 10/100 PCI
Operating System - Windows XP Pro
FYI too, I tried some freeware diagnostic program called BurnInTest, but everything passed fine, whereas I know everything isn't fine.
Any help would be appreciated! thanks!
