    I'd bet on either PSU or the video card. Sorry but a Radeon 7500 would've been a better choice for that older setup. : peace2:

    Apparently You do you NOT pay any attention.. I'm not talking about my piece of **** Compaq.. I'm talking about a 1Ghz Intel P3.
    And it constantly Restarts and it locks up alot.. I reinstalled the Os several times.. I took it completely apart.. Looked at everything.. Execpt the motherboard.. it was in there odd..

    I'll get more details later on.. I know the motherboard is a ABit.. And the Vid card is a ATI Radeo VE and it has 256 MB PC133 and has a 75 GB hdd 7200RPM.. and a 250 watt PSU
    With a cheap Lan card.. Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 and a 3 com modem..

    Ummm...... attention? :confused:
    Ummm....... it's nice to know all the details now (makes things easier to explain ya self fully first then bad assumptions won't be made ;) ) but still a lot of 250w PSU's were becoming very marginal with the PIII 1giggers.
    Another problem with them was bad case ventilation/cooling so there's another place to look.
    Now there's still another bit of information that will help immensely in helpin' solve ya prob and that's, what operating system are you using? :?:

    sorry.. I was just a lil bit cranky.. Anyways.. when they got it it had Windows ME on it (boo!) But i slicked it and put Windows XP Professional on it..
    Regardless of the OS it still does it.
    and like where it's suppose to have -12 it get's -12.19 is that bad?

    No that's fine, voltage has a +/- 5% tollerance, but what I think we need to know is what motherboard it has and does it have a utility to read system and CPU temps in Windows and if so what are they? Also in XP if you go to Admin Tools in the control panel and check the Event Viewer you may see if any probs are being logged in that. ;)

    That maybe Intel's but I've yet to see one over 100F (37c) and 115F (47c) just seems a bit much. Probably doesn't matter anyway. :)
