    alright I'm using windows XP pro with all updates and SP1 installed now check this out i went into my bios and set everything back to the default setting and my system has been running stable ever since i was gaming for hours yesterday without one interruption now this brings me to my next question my CPU which is capable of 2.08 ghz is only running at 1.2 now because of the bus speed is set to default (100mhz) could it be possible that my memory isn't good enough to run my system at 166mhz bus speed?It is pc2700 ddr but i think there may be an error with it i ran memtest and it runs threw fine up until test 5 then it locks my system about 2 percent done threw test 5 in memtest If thats not the case i need a heads up as to maybe buy some new memory or any tricks or tweaks i can try thanks for any help.

    Increase the voltage of the memory to 2.6-2.7v and see if that will stabilize it.
