Random BSOD (aaaarghh)

  1. Hi all..

    Athlon 2800XP
    Asus A7S8X-MX
    512MB Ram
    Geforce FX5200 128mb
    On Board Sound

    Since building this system i've experienced random blue screens, sometimes 10 a day. I've installed the most up to date drivers possible and dont seem to be getting anywhere. I tried examining the minidumps myself to see if i could come up with anything but i remain clueless. I'd appreciate if somone with a bit more knowledge than myself would check them out and see if they can spot any problems.

    thanks in advance...


    (please let me know if any more info is needed)

    after lots of swapping of 'bits' I tracked the problem down to a faulty CPU..

    thanks for the help
