  1. Howdy all,
    I recently narrowed some infrequent blue screen errors (and an error on Prime95) down to either my cpu or motherboard. I just replaced my motheboard last night with a spare from another computer. I got Windows XP reloaded and have gotten all my drivers and setup in order. I put Prime95 on it and have been running it for about 7 hours. I would like to know how long you think I should run it to determine if my system is still flaky? At what point (how many hours of Prime95) can one reasonably say that their system is stable? I've read that with my old motherboard, errors might only show up on Prime95 after about 12 hours. That's a long time! So how long (I realize this will come from personal opinion/experiences) should I run Prime95?
