Memtest86+, Google, download, burn, run it for min of 4 hours.. 6 is optimal.

Oh and next time, think of a better thread title.

computer being configured properly might be subjective....
try for "default"
start with bios, make sure things are stock, turn off features you don't use
uninstall or disable extraneous apps, all but windows...
then re-enable and/or reinstall 1 by 1 to see what is buggering your system

^^ I completely agree with myself, Try what people suggest and you will not get hurt..
If I knew you were going to ignore my suggestion I would not have posted..

Fastestest way would be to remove 1 stick of ram and see if the issue continues, if it does, try the other stick (that is if you have mulitple sticks of ram)

Jethro.
First off, try explaining your situation in COMPLETE sentences.
Then maybe we can figure out what your trying to say.
Second, if you blow off what we suggest, why ask for help at all.
