first off, this is a really catchy forum name. i'm reminded of a little jingle i heard off the apprentice.. ("time, for, geeks to go, it's time for geeks to go!")
i've been having a lot of trouble with my computer. it was assembled from parts at the local computer mall, but i've more or less changed everything in it (save the processor) since then. Pentium IV 2.4Ghz, 1gig of RAM, on a P4 Titan series motherboard. running on Windows XP.
it keeps restarting on its own, sometimes even before it reaches the startup screen. there is no blue screen of death, but i get a black one sometimes (i.e., not even the booting stuff comes up). there's also the sickening long beeeep that goes off whenever my computer decides to flatline on me.
initially i thought it was coz of a loose RAM piece, so i took it out and put it back in. worked for a while, but the troubles came back again.
i really have no idea if it's a software or hardware problem, or both, coz sometimes it doesn't even boot, and i usually get a "Windows has just recovered from a serious error" message when i do get it running long enough.
does anyone have any idea what's happening? i'll be glad to provide as much details as i can.
thanks in advance!
