  1. I got a wild one!
    biostar geforce 6100-m9 socket 939
    amd athlon 64 proc32 spd = 2010mhz
    win xp pro latest bios and drivers provided by biostar loaded in.

    I thought I had a windows problem but i took a clean drive and reloaded
    xp onto this pc. I have monitored the chip power it appears to be ok.
    Stress tested the chip with the biostar software and it passes. Just at
    a loss when it comes to debuggin. I have gotten 1 blue screen.

    Driver.irql.not.less.or equal
    atapi.sys.address.ba712bb8 base at ba70b000 date stamp 41107b4d

    This pc can run for 2 hours or 2 minutes before it reboots itself or shuts off.
    Right now its rebooting itself more than shutting down.

    Any suggestions?
