I have an advent t9401 3.6ghz h.t. 1024mb ddr ram running windows xp home fully updated. my problem is when i give the computer lots of things to do at once it crashes and i get a blue screen with lots of tecnobabble on it but it does say its dumping physical memory. if i try and restart it straigt away i get a disc read error press ctrl+alt+del to restart but this message just comes up again. if i let the system cool down for 30 mins it starts normally. i had a PSU failure back in july could the new one that was fitted be cause, as the problem wasnt there before it was fitted
I have had a similar problem after re installing XP recently. The fix that worked for me was to go into the BIOS settings by pressing the delete key during the POST (startup black screen) and changing the processor speed to a value slightly less than it was. (for me that meant from 200 to 166 mhz) and then everything seemed to be fine.
