Windows Xp freezes

  jaimie 21:11 04 Nov 2003

I have built 4 identical new systems for friends using Asus N266-VM Mobo and 1800 XP AMD processor. All with 256 DDR mem and Windows XP pro, all work perfectly but the one I built for myself freezes up if left running for 20 minutes. I have no programmes on yet and no screen saver or power management running. (i intend this machine for video editing) if I ever get it running. Have re-installed windows to no avail, anyone any ideas please?

Yhank you

Try another PSU, I had this problem and found the power supply to be faulty.

Maybe try reseating all the pci cards and memory chips? Heat creepage? Is the PSU and CPU fans working ok? Is the BIOS shutdown temprature set too low?
