Restarts, cant boot, im fed up.
I built the system myself about a year ago, and try and fix everything myself eventhou i don't know that much, but ive thrown in the towel on this one, and this forum is a last ditch effort before i suck it up and bring my computer to a repair tech in a store.
Motherboard- Asus P4P800 SE, Socket 478
CPU- P4 3.0GHz
Memory- 1Gb dual channel, kingston pc3200
Video card- Ati X800pro AGP
Sound card- Old soundblaster i dont even remember
CD/RW is a basic HP, no DvD rom
2 34g SATA WD Raptors in a RAID 0
1 IDE WD 80gb HD
450w Power supply
Windows XP Pro
Im sure i missed something, but i hope not.
Few months ago my computer started to just restart on its own. It could restart once a week, once every two weeks, or 5 times in 30 minutes, it varies greatly. I did a memory test to check memory and cache and found no errors. Theres no conflicts in my device manager.
Today the computer restarted and i got a usual bluescreen, except this time i got a different error.
It said there was a problem with the file ati3duag.dll
When i restarted the computer, i would get to teh windows XP loading screen, and it would then just go black and nothing would happen. When i try to boot in safe mode, i get a list of files on my screen which stops at agp440.sys and nothing happens. Currently i can only get to windows if i load the last good configuration. I have a insane headache and i have given up on this issue, if anyone has any thoughts on what is happening i would appreciate the info.
I use motherboard monitor to try and monitor the CPU temp it reads the CPU is average 96f and case is 98f, when i play games such as world of warcraft or battlefield 2 it goes up to about 115f and then when im done with the game is drops back down to 96f.
I have 3 fans in case and i even opened the side to keep good airflow incase overheating could be a prob, which i dont think it is.
Last note, i use catalyst 5.8 for my Ati card, but it also crashed with each version before it.
