I'm getting a fatal system crash and I can't get to the bottom of it. Tried reformatting several times and tried using Win 98 SE, checked the fan etc.
Usually when running a game, watching DivX avi or cd writing - no warnings, no errors just a .25 second loop. Alt Ctl Del will not reset it only reset button.
System spec Win2k os, K7sem motherboard with SIS730s chipset, 256 mb ram (single stick), 40 gb hd, onboard sound, NVIDIA geforce 2 mx400 graphics (although crashing was occurring when on board graphics were used too), AMD Athlon 1.2 ghz, Broadband via ethernet (Realteck)
Please help - Bumpy

There is no BIOS upgrade available for my board. Am I likely to be looking at a new motherboard ?
Any reccommendations. I'm looking for one with Intel chipset as this will resolve some compatibility issues with my WinTV card
