  1. Hey guys, I have a really strange problem with my pc. It crashes whenever i finish installing anything (software, games, etc.) . when i click the 'finish' button it gives me a 'BSOD' and restarts. OR it will crash when i try to start the install manually. My computer never crashes otherwise. The program or game most of the time will function when it gets back on.

    my setup:

    Mobo- ASUS A8n-sli deluxe
    CPU- AMD Athlon 64 3500+ socket 939 at 2.21Ghz
    Video Card-EVGA 9500 GT
    Hard Drive- Seagate 200Gb
    PSU-Antec earthwatts 500w
    RAM- stick#1--Hynix 512mb running at 143.6Mhz
    stick#2--doesn't have a brand name on it- 256mb running at 143.6Mhz
