Hi....I have a NFORCE4-A939 motherboard running AMD Athlon XP 64 3800+ CPU, 1 Gb DDR RAM. problem is about a week ago, the system began to freeze. i removed one of the 512 memory chips, but the system still reezes and now the computer case give an electrical shock.
the computer does not boot at all now.
Also....I disabled the "BIOS PROTECT" JP3 jumber on the board for a short while, then reanabled it.
The system still shocks and does not boot. also...the chipset fan does not spin at times and sometimes spin slowly.

I think any of the dual cores on that page will be a OK upgrade.
So if you upgrade your ram to 2GB and a Dual core 4800+ that should be good. but in the long run it might be smarter to upgrade to a new motherboard and even faster cpu, with DDR 2 memory, the memory ddr2 is really cheap these days.
Some people don't like links as a solution, but the subject is more complicated than just a few lines of text, By chance do you have a killer graphics card with 1 gig of memory (which in turn overwrites the 4 gigs of system memory when mapped. 4-1=3) Give this a read: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929605
Oddly enough this board has the following specs: The board supports both Althon and Duron processors up to Athlon XP 2800+ (3000+ with a BIOS update). It can handle 3 GB of DDR333 RAM (or 2 GB of DDR400, but not all types are supported). That's the older 184pin DDR ram in PC2700 or PC3200 guises. I can see no reason why it would only accept 2gb of the faster Ram. Why not go over to www.crucial.com and run the online scan to get the true story on your board?
