Random restarts

  1. Hey, I'm new to these forums, but they seem like a very helpful place :D

    Well, I've been having random restarts, for no reason that I can see. They never occur at any particular time, or while running any particular program, it just restarts whenever. The restarts began after I installed my new video card, and RAM. I've run memtest on each RAM module, but it always turns up clean.

    System Specs:
    AMD Athlon 2900+
    Chaintech 7NJL6
    1 512MB pc3200, 1 256MB pc2700, and 1 128MB pc2100
    XFX GeForce 6800 AGP 128MB
    160GB ata130 Hitachi HD
    500W Powmax PSU

    Thanks for your time, any help will be appreciated.

    Take out all but the 3200 ram and that should fix it. You should never run different speeds of ram together.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Rik has hit the nail right on the head.

    Try running with just the 512Mb of pc3200 ram.

    If you still get problems, go HERE and follow the insructions for testing your ram.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
