Question about Soyo SY-P4I865PE Plus DRAGON 2 v1.0 Motherboard
I am setting up a computer for my girlfriends little brother using a Soyo P4I865PE Plus Dragon 2 v1.0 mobo. Using 400-watt power supply, P4 Prescott(3.0E/1m/800fsb), 512mb DDR400, 120gb IDE hard drive, and XP-Pro. The problem: System locks up from time to time(with cpu described above) but has so problem when run with another cpu I have (2.8/1m/533). Problem happens when running virus scans and having lotz of internet pages open at a time...this is how I can force the problem to happen to test if something I have done has fixed it. Tested Good: DDR, HD, video card, power supply, and cables. My next things to try are Bios Update and downloading mobo drivers, but I don't know which ones to use or where to find them (Soyo website down for last couple of days)... Anyone know where I can find what I'm looking for or have any other ideas?
I would say ram. Most the time you have lockups is because of a bad ram address. The system will run for a while till you fill up enough resources to reach the bad ram address then the system will lock up. The funny part of your problem is that it doesn't happen with the other CPU. But I don't think the DDR400 ram was designed to be used in systems with a Prescott CPU. The motherboard may accept the ram and the CPU's all right but the Prescott was a pretty powerful CPU for it's time and I think most of the systems it was designed to run in used a lot faster ram.
