Question about ASUS Intel 850 Chipset P4T-E (P4T-E/WOA) Motherboard
Hi, I have a brand new GeForce 7050m-m mother board that came with a Combo 1640 AMD processor, I purchased the RAM at the same place I purchased the combo board/processor, I installed a 2gig 240 PIn stick of Corsair RAM.
Problem: WIndows XP Pro installed fine, only it will freeze while using the system, I can be surfing, and eventually the computer will also Power off and back on, I attempted to instill Kubuntu, and during the install which starts out fine,, will stop while setting up, and at times the system powercycles,,
The Only thing I have added to this Combo is a 500 GIG Sata Drive, and of course the memory. Can anyone tell me, what might be the problem? I am leaning toward the Ram, It is a single stick of 2 gigs of Corsair memory,,
I have also purchased a second board of the exact thing, and Processor, and installed my hdd and Memory, and have the exact same problem, Nothing different what so ever..
It could be the processor also (unless you bought another one of those, too), but chances are that you are right in suspecting the RAM. It's a quick troubleshoot, as well - buy a new stick, install it, see what happens.
The system behavior is a tad curious - not something i've ever seen with a memory problem - usually you'll get a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) and an error code that vaguely refers to the memory. Nevertheless, something isn't right, and I don't think a HDD can cause that level of mayhem, but RAM certainly can.
Let me know how it goes after you swap it out - I'd be interested in knowing if that was it.
