just got my computer back from the workshop 4 days back and the problem was that the ram card was the culprit which they changed and now my computer seems stable, at least so for the last 4 days.
Well I'm not entirely satisfied how things turned out since i upgraded my ram to 2gb from 512mb in end Sep09, and the problem started in dec09, (which began with the computer not booting), then after they changed the mboard in dec09, the restarteing began almost immediately for nearly a month till i sent it back to the workshop, and now they say the ram was bad? Seemingly so since the computer is stable now(at least for 4 days now). I checked the mobo specs with pcwizard2010 and it matches with the original mobo manual from the manufacturer.
Anyways, my real problem now is that my mobo only supports 533/667 mhz ram cards and the 2gb "problem card' was 800mhz. So they changed to the 533mhz ram card but only 512mb, since 1 or 2gb currently unavailable at the moment. So now , temporarily, can i use a usb flash drive of around 2gb with readyboost feature to speed up my computer, because its rediculuosly slow. Im using vista home basic. Please explain how to use and what to buy. Thanks
