Games Resetting - Think It Could Be Mobo/Memory

  1. Hiya all, I'm new here so bare with me :wave:

    Over the christmas period I upgraded my computer by putting a new mobo and chip in and new graphics card. I also aquired a new power supply unit.

    Since this has happened my games have been resetting and starting the computer up again. I have changed around graphics cards, power supply units and still I have the same problem. I even reinstalled just incase of corrupted files.

    One thing i have not changed around is the mobo and memory. I know that the copmuter is not overheating, the case is at 37C and the mobo is at 33C.

    I have just order new memory hoping that this may solve the problem, however if anyone has any ideas I would appreciate it if anyone would pass thier ideas forward.

    My specs are:

    1GB ram,
    Nvidia 6600
    Athlon 3000
    IS 7 mobo
    memory is unbranded
    power supply is 500w however i have my old 450w in atm.

    Thank you

    go into your bios and set your memory timings to longer values. and, if you have the option, disable cpc override. this will, simply put, give the ram more time to work. if this works then you'll need to experiment to see whats the fastest timing you can run without restarting.
