    60°C is pretty normal for a Prescott based Pentium-4. Have you tried running a memtest to see if the problem doesn't come from the Ram ?

    Thanks Didou :) BTW what is not normal for a P630?

    I tested the RAM before 5-6 days, but i'm not sure for the result.

    Windows Memory Diagnostic makes 450 passes and give 2 errors:

    Result - Pass - Test ----- Cache --- Adress ----- Expected ---- Actual
    .. 1 ....... 68 ... WINVC .... On ........ 0015da88 .... 7f7f7f7f ...... 7f7f7f3c
    .. 2 ....... 68 ... WINVC .... On ........ 0015daa8 .... 7f7f7f7f ...... 7f7f7f3c



    Memtest 3.4 (I tested 3 days) give 4 errors (screenshot #1-4).

    Use the memtest I linked. It is not Windows based & more reliable. As for the CPU temp, once it goes over 75°C I would say there's a problem.

    OK. I tested with memtest86 too (ISO burned to CD), but it give any errors.

    How long did you leave it running ? You should leave it a couple of hours or even 24 hours if possible.

    2 days (~48 hours).

    :mad: Windows crashes again with new blue screens:
    ... and too BAD_POOL_CALLER, MEMORY MANAGMENT.

    Have you tried playing around with the Ram modules ? Maybe testing them one by one, lowering speed & timings, raising module voltages, etc.
