I have just built the following spec PC: (Only the Motherboard and processor are new all the other components have been working in my Athlon 3200+ for about 8 months with out a single hitch)
AMD3200 64bit (754pin), Asus K8V-X, Samsung 512Mb DDR400, ATi Radeon 9600 256Mb, Samsung 160Gb SATA, CD-RW, DVD-ROM. The problem is that it boots up and if you dont touch it stays on but as soon as you run anything it locks up. I can usually complete 3 clicks before this happens. Has anyone any ideas?
It was suggested that the PSU I was using may have been cheep and nasty it was a Q-Tec 650Watt I have now bought an Antec 480W True Blue, but am getting the same fault, I have tried the Windows XP 64 that works for about 2 mins. I am currently trying Windows XP Pro with SP2 integrated as I have a fully licensed version and that lasts even less time.
Please help I am running out of hair to pull out.
