    sup,



    i used window xp sp2 and i tried to reinstall it but nothing changed many times

    i also switched to window xp sp3 than i borrow from a friend but it's even worse, it's doesn't freeze anymore, it's only ramdomly reboot! (not updated, formatted than install in hdd)

    the only program i installed is the lan onboard software and the graphic software nothing else

    I built a custom PC using the P5QC Mother board and the Intel Q6600 Processor, Buffalo 4GB(2x2 DDR2 800) memory, Gfource 9500GT Video card and Seagate 500GB Sata HDD. Built the system and posted fine, Installed Vista Ultimate and system Hung. Updated all Drivers based on CD privided by Asus for hardware and ensured Video Card Driver was latest from GForce. Pathced OS completely. Still Hung.



    I started diagnosing,

    Removed Video card and used basic nvida PCI video card. still hung

    Reduced and swapped RAM around to determine If I had a bad DIMM. still hung



    Removed Vista Operating System and installed Windows XP SP2 from scratch. Still hung.



    At this point the only two items I can not swap out is the Processor and the Motherboard. Next step is to replace the mother board with an excact replacement. Hoping it is just a defective component, not a defective design.

    im having the same problem with my pc (p5qc). It would always freeze 10-15 min after booting it. After trying a bunch of different things, i found out that it was the USB ports that were causing it to freeze. I'm now using ps/2 mouse and keyboard and my system works fine. any suggestions on how to fix my usb ports?

HI! THE ONE QUESTION I NEED TO KNOW IS WHAT OS? JUST GENERALLY I WOULD SAY THAT YOU MIGHT TRY TO UPDATE THE OS TO THE LATEST VERSION. AGAIN, NOT KNOWING THE OS, THIS IS A FIX I WOULD TRY. YOU SAID THE PROBLEM HAPPENED AFTER YOU INSTALLED THE OS, BUT WHAT ELSE WAS INSTALLED ALSO? YOU MIGHT NEED TO LOOK AT ALL PROGRAMS TO BE SURE THAT YOU HAVE THE LATEST VERSIONS AND THAT THEY ARE COMPATIBLE WITH YOUR OS. SO, THESE ARE SOME IDEAS FOR NOW. TRY THEM AND IF NO LUCK, REPLY AND LET ME KNOW THE OS YOU ARE USING AND THE PROGRAMS INSTALLED. OK? I'LL BE GLAD TO HELP.

    IS YOUR MACHINE RECEIVING AUTO UPDATES? DO YOU HAVE A BROWSER INSTALLED LIKE IE7 OR SUCH? I WAS JUST WONDERING IF A SCHEDULED TASK MIGHT BE RUNNING IN THE BACKGROUND THAT IS CAUSING THE REBOOT? SOMETIMES A VIRUS PROGRAM WILL DOWNLOAD UPDATES AND WANT TO REBOOT TO HAVE THE NEW UPDATE ACTIVE. WOW, THIS IS SOMETHING BECAUSE WIN XP IS SUCH A STABLE PROGRAM USUALLY. YOU MIGHT TRY A PHYSICAL INSPECTION INSIDE THE CASE, BECAUSE I'M THINKING THIS IS A ELECTRICAL TRIGGER OF SORTS, POSSIBLY CAUSED BY A LOOSE CONNECTION SOMEWHERES INSIDE BETWEEN A COMPONET OR ON THE MOTHERBOARD. I KNOW THIS SOUNDS GOOFY, BUT I'VE SEEN A LOOSE PLUG PLAY HAVOC WITH A SYSTEM BEFORE. THIS IS WHY I PASS THIS ALONG. LET ME KNOW. WE'LL FIND IT!

Blue sceen ASUS 3 Motherboard - M4A88TD-M EVO


Hello, I am the technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Tracey Laidler.

Yes you are quite correct BSOD or Blue Screen Of Death is normally due to a memory fault. However drivers are as big a culprit, especially seeing as though you have changed memory modules and processor.

Install all the drivers for this mainboard.
Also enter the BIOS/CMOS by tapping the Delete key during first powering on the computer.
Once in the BIOS/CMOS select the option to load defaults.
Check if that works.

If not then take it a step further by clearing the BIOS/CMOS by removing the silver button cell from the mainboard for 10seconds before reinstalling it in the correct orientation.

Take care!

    One bad lead will cause your computer to shut down or continue in a cycle
    replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to your hard drive

    ASUS Asus P5QC Motherboard


    Hello edwardfuller:

    Do the same as you did, only this time remove all plug in boards and if there is anything connected to the mother board such as extra fans, speakers, and so on, remove all.
    The board will detect any shorts, or overloads or problems in cards and so on , and will not turn on.

    If it still will not work, check your memory sticks.
    Remove all memory and place one at a time in the first slot, and then proceed to turn on and test.
    By elimination, you can find the problem.
    If all fails, then something may be wrong with the mother board.
    take care, hope this will help,
