Hello there. I've recently bought a new computer from Dell and it is rather unstable. I've formated the hard drive, re-installed XP, then installed the drivers for the chipset, network, graphics from Dell's site, then downloaded the latest windows critical updates. The computer is on a workgroup connected to a netgear DG834 router/modem/firewall with the latest firmware. The rest of the specifications are : Intel Pentium D CPU 3,2GHz - not overclocked 2 250GB hard drives connected in a nvidia stripe raid 0 NVIDIA GeForce 7800GTX NVIDIA nForce Networking controller Creative SB X-Fi sound PSU - Dell's own. 600Watt I think Windows XP pro SP2 Remember this is brand-new out of the box I installed the ani-virus program avats4 and have left the computer running a bittorrent program and went away. After a few hours it crashed to a blue stop screen. It continued doing this so..... I formatted and re-installed windows and the drivers and tried again and it crashed again. As the computer is brand new (just over a week) I may try and get a replacement or refund from Dell. I'm highly reluctant to call the support line because I know how stressful and pretty much limited they are. You get through to some bloke sitting infront of one of those standard troubleshooter programs and the advice is reinstall windows etc. I'm wondering if anyone here is good a decifering 64k mini dump files. Rather than attching them to this post I've put them all here:- http://www.zen70645.zen.co.uk/crash with a photograph in living colour!!!! and will be adding to the list as time passes. and machine crashes....... I know that 3 of them mention something to do with the network controller and as the crashes have occured when using bittorrent I thought it might have something to do with bittorrent putting a strain on it. I know this was a common problem in the early days of bittorrent, about 3/4 years back. But that was only with cheap/poor network cards. I'm using a realitivly top-end brand new machine with networking built into the motherboard. I'm using the latest nVidia driver for it. The other stop errors are each different. My previous computer was and is a Dimension4600 from Dell that has seen really heavy use. It's been on literally 24hours a day 7 days a week for the best part of 2.5 years and in that time has only crashed about 8 times and on each occasion the crash could be duplicated and diagnosed. This thing has been active for less than a week, running a fraction of the programs the Dimension was and has crashed almost as many times with very little pattern to them. Anyway any help or advice would be very welcome. Have I got faulty hardware, bad memory/over heating etc or is it a driver conflict that can be easily sorted?
