200 watts is pathetic. You need to rule this out first. If there is any way to open it and direct a good fan into the box to see if it lasts longer before crashing, this might reveal a heat problem. These small boxes are interesting but defy good science sometimes.
OK, Ive been trying to get this new system up and running for about 2 weeks now but Ive had nothing but problems
Thats the barebone Im trying to use to no avail. Basically what happens is that it randomly crashes during programs and it either restarts the whole system or just shuts down the program. Its not a virus problem, I just dont know if its a PSU or a hard drive problem, or a motherboard problem. Ive tried 2 different hard drives and it happens with both of them. Everything will go fine with installation of everything and it will run great for a day, then just non stop crashes .
Heres more specs:
1024mb pc2700 corsair
52x Lite-on CDRW
onboard video and sound
Do you think I should return this thing or upgrade the power supply? Its only 200W.
ANY help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!!
