1. The owner had decided heatsink compound was optional. Heck it worked fine for a few months. Later it began crashing. "No, it can't be that." was their response.
2. The power supply was just barely big enough. We fitted a monster and that was that.
It could be heat but we run into those that measure the CPU or other temperatures. For them we have to wait this they get tired of the crashing then we try the simple test. We leave the cover off.
I have an FujitsuSiemens computer (Scaleo H) from 2005. Windows XP SP2, AMD Athlon 64x2 Dual Core 4200+,2.21GHz,1G Ram.After some problems with antivirus programs and stability of the system. I had the suggestion from FujitsuSiemens to formate the HD and re-install xp from recovery disk. The problem started after that. Finally I made a new formating of the HD and re-installed W XP. Everything worked fine but when XP was loading, the computer shut down. The tower was still under power but nothing worked. I did manual restart and after a few attemt it worked. Now the computer runns ok but suddenly it shutdown and re-start automatically.All info is gone and W XP is reloading. Now I only have W XP, MS office, Avast antivirus running to make minimum strain on system. What can I do??????Help
