Hi crytodan thanks for response. As a new member I wasnt sure initially where to post but have this listed at internal hardware also. I looked for delete option but cant find. Anyway I have to ask your meaning of "dusted out"? Are you meaning the use of compressed air or similar inferring that inside PC case is dusty? PC is only 2 months old and I wouldnt describe as dusty? Please explain. Im in Australia so apologise for any delay. Im all ears and willing to perform any assisted troubleshooting/diagnosis to remedy this PC. Ive just allocated manually 6GB of virtual disc memory for C drive. I have drive partitioned into 4 primary partitions. 1) The MBR 2) C drive 3) D drive and 4) E drive. Is that the right way to partition the drive, ie not using extended volume? All programs and OS are on C. D and E are for storage and back ups. I just altered their virtual disk memory to be Windows system managed just out of curiosity! Is this OK to do? or should I revert back to no paging setting? Anyway Ill try stick to the main issue of using this Hynix RAM its compatability and configuration, Single or Dual channel? I used your Speccy application and noticed 5 to 6 degrees difference on my I3 CPU. One side was 27 degrees and other 33 degrees, is that OK? I was hoping someone might be able to read a dump file or system analysis and find problem. Im in the process of ordering new 4GB (2 x 2GB)RAM kit from Crucial to eliminate any notion of Hynix RAM being the culprit of continual shutting and starting up problems! Other things about my PC setup is I have new faster speed 1 TB WD Black HDD and use DVI-I output to a DVI-I to VGA convertor going into a Startech VGA to HDTV convertor going to my CRT Sony Hi Def TV running at 1080i. I output 1028 x 768 @ 60hz from PC to Startech scaler. I have ATI HD5450 grahic card and am using a Sony color profile from their FW90 monitor just for comparison. PC recognises my TV/Startech scaler as Generic VGA monitor as no EDD info is given. It has a card reader which is faulty and is disconnected until I replace. I replaced original 640GB HDD as found corrupt sector with above mentioned latest 1TB HDD. It was extremely noisy and replaced it under warranty the next day! Is this just badluck or highlighting something Im not aware. This is its 3rd HDD! I havent ruled out DVD drive or power supply. I'll shut up now. Any suggestions or advice most welcomed. cheers dellta
