    Is this a new computer? Are the drivers all current? Have you looked in device manager to see if there are any issues there?

    You refer to 93.71 (video driver) .... I assume the motherboard drivers are current as well (chipset, etc.). Have you tried running with each stick of ram independantly? You haven't mentioned your power supply unit brand name (the real power behind the scenes). Is it up to the task and are you able to test it in another machine?

    hi dawg!

    cheers for advice, i will try each ram module on its own.

    i havent checked if the drivers for my motherboard are the latest ones.

    i dont know the make of my psu and im sure its not a famous brand. i got it from pcworld here in uk (pcworld is big chain of pc shops)

    i will try out your suggestions and let u know how it turns out...fingers crossed!

    bye

    What is the operating system?? how frequent are the Reboots....are the reboots intermittent....off what you have mentioned it sounds more like a problem with the operating system or OS conflicts....any BSOD's in the recent past???...

    you should monitor your pc temps and voltages, maybe you have an overheating part. i suggest you to load bios defaults and try to run the system again.

    another thing: check the asus peg link mode, set it to slow, it gave me these kind of problem (plus post hang ups) when i had my x1600pro.. 'cause that peg link mode if set to normal or high, it overclocks your pci-e graphic card without question you to.

    but, honestly, i think you have a software problem, and not a hardware one..
    and remember, you should download drivers in the site of the suplier of the chipsets, not the manufacturer.. (think nvidia, not xfx.. same for the mainboard)
