    ok over the last few weeks my computer has been randomly restarting or giving me the BSOD so i looked online it after many forums and a lot of reading i learned that it was most likely a memory or power supply problem so today why checking my system temps i noticed a voltage read out in this program that i have always kinda overlooked but actually looked into today and realized what it was saying my computer isn't getting anywhere near 12 volts rail which blew my mind but not really since its a cheapo psw. oh well have a look at the screen shot and tell me if this could be the reason for my computer constantly messing up

    if i remember correctly 12V rail mainly provides power to most of the peripherals like your drives and all. whatever dude, that thing looks real bad but don't take my word on it. someone real gud in hardware might come in and help you more but imo start collecting money for a gud PSU.

    Looks like you have a major issues!!!
    BTW just to be sure, go into bios, and there you;ll find a PC Health or something simmilar. See if the voltages show up any different.
    If they do, the software might be reading something wrong, although I doubt it. But worth a shot anyway.

    I use this cheap PSU. http://www.pcdirect.com/product.asp?Sku=450ATXAMD .

    I get this, but I use a P4 mainboard.
    3.3v - 3.16v
    +5v - 5.08v
    +12 - 12.22v
    -12v - -13.35v
    -5v - -5.40v

    Just thought I'd mention this below becuase it might possibly be related to your problem.

    I use to get wierd things like what your talking about (System restarts, 3D game freezes\crashes) to happen to a couple of my systems that used PSU powered ATI Radeon graphics cards and at one point I blamed the PSU's but found out in both cases it was not the PSU and was just CMOS settings that needed to be changed . Maybe something like this is happening to you but I have to admit your votages do look really weak if larger minus numbers are better on the last 2 items, although I'm no expert on the subject so maybe thats O.K. on a AMD board. .:shrug:

    You could probably find something with Google pertaining to what those voltages should run.

    I used Speedfan on my 8RDA+ and it never reported the right voltages, so Id say the program is wrong

    Ok it looks like the program is wack and wasnt reporting the right voltages, becasue of it i ended up gettin a nice new enlight 400 watt power supply. So i can rule that out of my problems for my windows and games freezing outta no where. My system and cpu temp is fine now im afraid that it might be my memory any input or suggestions? on what to do an order to handle this problem.

    I'd guess its either your memory or a setting. Try using only one of the Ram modules at a time and place it in the slot closest to your CPU, then see if that stables your system out.
