check voltages, often makes your comp crash, also try just with the 512 stick
Funny you mention voltages. My asus probe monitor always has a voltage alarm when I run it. What ranges of +12V and +5V are fine? My 12V seems to read about 13.3 on average but drops down to 5-7V for a secon or two then goes back to 13. Is this normal or am I looking at a dying power supply?
And how would a power supply problem account for these applications not crashing after I removed the ram?
