    I've recently built the following Spec PC

    K7NCR18 Motherboard
    2500 + Processor
    Samsung DVD/CDRW
    60 gig HD (soon to be matched with another 40Gig HD)
    2*256 DDR Ram

    Sadly it keeps crashing with Windows XP pro
    My friend John (an IT Pro) Thinks it’s a driver fault and tried new M/board drivers + windows updates. But it still crashes

    He as also disabled the graphic drivers (using a default driver) which Helps (a little) but it still freezes and crashes.

    Also the speakers sometimes omit a Twanging sound (Like an Audio Crash).

    I Really Hate PC's and this is not helping I expected such a simple set up to work well!!!!

    Any Idea’s: mad:

    I have no experience of that particular MB but I had a frequent no ex-planation reboot problem with a board because the ram was in slots 1 & 2 instead of 1 & 3, not mentioned in the manual that this was the desired config...worth a try?

    When I built this PC I used slots 1 & 3 but when John checked it (busi body) he changed to to 2 & 3.
    The manual says:-

    WinFastK7NCR18D/G-Pro Supports memory dual channel access. Please use DIMM1 + DIMM3 or DIMM2 + DIMM3 to get better performance.

    So you'd think no problem...... But since I changed it back no crashes ?

    Lets hope.
