Question about ASUS P5P800-MX Motherboard
Just as i have indicated it reboots at odd times. also some times when it comes back up at the windows logo where the bar (green or blue) appears, just before it would start running that logo and the bar on the bottom, it just is dim, like it hangs and i have to turn it off to get it to boot, which it does usually the next time, but then after a while it freezes or reboots. any ideas? running xp on mother board above.
Its is possible that you have some bad memory search & download a program called memcheck 1.70 or later, and either put it on a formated floppy or burn onto a cd ,make sure that the boot sequence in the bios is set to go to that drive first
the pc will boot into this program and will keep running untill you stop it,if their are any errors it will show up ,you will need to establish what memory chip it is, if you have more than one chip.
it could also be a power supply, supplying iregular voltage.
also xp requires at LEAST 256 mbs to run badly, more is better.so if you are using less than 256 mbs it will be the problem.
