Hi Ace07

such crashes can be caused also by power supply or by memory. Please try to change.
ZX-S & C64 are still my favourites ;-)

Hi Ace07

Have changed the PSU to a 550 to ensure that it can take the load have also added in 3 120mm fans to move the air follow around the case as well. I will need to look in and see about the memory as per the retailer I purchard this from only allow RMA for products that are faultly and there is no way I can prove that it is the memory is at fault. damma it. The Microsoft memory checker and the build in one to vista reports no errors with regards to the memory so I'm a bit stuck on this matter and do not know what to do for the best as I'm reluctant to buy the same memory again incase the problem still hapens.

I am having the same issues as well. Memoey is fine. I did a burn test for just over 24 hours.

I have tried underclocking too.

Any help would be good.

Thank you.

Hi RattyDave

try to use newest chipset & vga driver ver 8.522 from this link:
http://www.giga-byte.co.uk/Support/Motherboard/Driver_DownloadFile.aspx?FileType=Driver&FileID=3518

does the same happen if you use only one stick of memory? try it.

maybe it's memory incompability problem, try to change the memory into other vendor. if all above doesn't help then rma the mb.

Have download that drive and still the same. I'm thinking it could be the AMD9850 as everything has been changed apart from this. So doing some testing the now with it I have my mates 9850 and he has mine to see what happens. Cant be the board as it has done this on both board that I have tried and there both brand new.

Have also changed the memory from Kingston to OCZ to see if that helps as well. In fact I did that before swaping over the Processor and still the same hence the reason that I think it is the processor related

I have fixed my issue and running perfect now. The problen was my Power suppy. The 450w was not up to the job. I put a 650w in and no problems. Been stable for over a month now.

Thanks for all your help!
