Hello, Im new to all this so i shall do my best to explain things and hope someone can help.

I have just had a new motherboard and processor installed on my computer, all the specs are below, and everything keeps crashing, mainly my browser but occasionally even windows crashes. I have had unexpected restarts and even on 1 occasion seen the blue screen of death. I have formatted my hard drives several times and reinstalled everything but no change. I was wondering if this could be another hardware problem? if so could someone please advise me on any checks i could make to see what the problem is.
I have also checked the temp of the cpu and it is running at about 37c which i am told is ok.

Here are my specs. If you need any other info i will provide it.

OS - Windows XP Home sp1
CPU - Intel pentium 4 2.8ghz
MB - Asrock P4i65g prescott 800mhz
mem - 512mb
Graphics - Geforce fx5200 256mb
Hard drive - WDC 40gb
- Fujitsu 20gb

Did you reinstall Windows on the new motherboard/CPU or are you using the same installation?

No i have reinstalled windows several times on the new motherboard.
Also the errors seem to be completely random. They dont occur when using a specific program but occur at random times. Sometimes it is fine for 30 mins at other times it occurs after 30 secs of use.

Go to the manufacturer's website and download their disk utility to check the hard drive out:

  • Fujitsu "FJDT" DOWNLOAD Works with fujitsu models only.
  • Hitachi / IBM - DFT "Drive Fitness Test" DOWNLOAD Works with all manufacturers.
  • Maxtor "Powermax" DOWNLOAD Works with all manufacturers.
  • Samsung "hutil" DOWNLOAD Compatability unknown.
  • Seagate "Seatools" DOWNLOAD Works with Seagate drives only.
  • Toshiba - N/A There are no tools available for Toshiba, but you may be able to use IBM or Maxtor's.
  • Western Digital "Data Lifeguard" DOWNLOAD Works with WD drives only.

To check the memory I suggest using Memtest or Windows Memory Diagnostic. Keep in mind newer motherboards may need to be reconfigured. For instance, I have an Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe and the only way I could get the tests to run was to disable Legacy USB devices in the BIOS.
