I'd call the machine supplier and make it their problem. Ask for a full refund since something is busted. Could I be more blunt on this issue?
These A7Nxx boards are trouble for new and old builders so let the system supplier get the headache.
Help !! I have recently built myself a pc, but am having trouble with spasmodic crashes. Especially while playing games. The parts I used are Asus A7N8X Deluxe M/B, AMD 2800+ Processor, 1GB Mem, GForce4 4200Ti Graphix card, Creative 5.1 sound card (I have disabled on board sound), and all the other usual parts DVD, modem etc. I have installed XP Home and downloaded all the updates yet sometimes the game or application I'm using just stops and sends me back to the desktop, or it completely resets the pc, telling me it had to do a memory dump on a blue screen. Can any kind sole out there give me any tips as to where i went wrong.
