Hi Folks.I am just about to build a PC for my father.The bits and bobs are all very much last generation, my cast offs.This is not a problem as he doesn't want to do anything to extreme with the computer.Stability is the MOST important thing.After it is built is there a freebie that I can get that will spend 24 hours putting the systen though circuits and bumps to find any weak spots?Support is going to be tricky as he lives 200 miles away and is not PC literate, therefore I would like it to be as stable as possible before I hand it over.Thanks in advance,Cheers, Epirb.(wasn't until writing this I realised how accepting I was of my frequent crashes, due mostly to my fiddling!)
Your best bet is build it and just try it. Do not run Programs that stress old components. You will find problems early enough when they fail.
click here have a look at the sys. mark 2001 version which will be more suitable for the system you have built, rather than the latest version. You can leave it running in "Loop" for 24 hours. It will test the system stability out nicely for you. j.
Think that the future mark progs may be my best bet, will have to do my reading (again!)Will give it a go and let you know, Cheers,Epirb.
I have used all versions of Windows and found most stable one is Win2K.
to get round to following this up!At least the PC is built now and with only minor probs!Wondered if anyone had any further suggestions.....I am loath to install trial software as cleaning up afterwards can be a pain, especially since I am trying to keep this installation simple and unsullied.As for sys mark 2001, unless I'm reading it wrong, thats $200!!!!If noone can suggest an app what circuits and bumps would you put a new PC through before handing it over to a new owner?Remember, this must make his life easier, not more complicated, I am going to have enough trouble explaining virus updates!Cheers all, Epirb.
You can use Prime95click hereJust leave it running for as long as possible
Think you maybe taking me down a bit of a dark alley here ray....Was after something that tested the stability of windows on this particular machne..Any ideas peeps?Cheers, Epirb.
After I've built a system for somebody, I just run an endless loop test for a couple of hours.It loads the system to 100% performance.If it runs this ok, I can be fairly sure its a winner.
