Cbarnard, i have fixed it now thanks to you, really helped me alot you guys.
Thank you very much, Rshaffer61 and 123Runner deserve the credit to. I'm glad we all could help you we welcome your questions anytime...
But now i am planning to get a new computer in a few months, as my old computer made by time is just not that good anymore, i am thinking a nice one with ubantu, cause without windows its cheaper i have heard, thanks alot, and expect me back here
When it is time to get your new computer, you should consider building it. It is pretty straight forward,I could help you with parts selection, and we have a whole section devoted to system building here on the forum. I look through it to help people build their own setup. The nice thing about a custom built unit is you know and control every part in it. You develop a relationship of sorts with it.
And one more quick question, will what i have done stop my computer from randomly resetting itself
I'm not sure, if the problem stopped, there could have been some corruption in the OS, If it continues I would look at hardware, and also overheating. A computer will usually shut down when it overheats. Clean out the tower and all vents of dust.
If the computer continues to shut down, You may have a memory issue. Make sure your ram is seated properly, and the clips are fully engaged.
If this doesn't help.
You could also run Memtest86 on your ram, If you have a live CD of ubuntu, Memtest comes with it. Just start Memtest instead of Ubuntu.
If you have multiple Ram modules then test them separately in the first DIMM (closest to the CPU.) Run each test 5 times on each ram module. If that didn't produce any errors, test both Ram modules 5 times. If you don't have any errors then your Ram is fine.
If you don't have an Ubuntu live CD you can download the program here Memtest86.com
Once at the site click on free download on the left part of the screen.
Follow the instructions to create the file. If you have any questions with how to make a bootable disk or usb drive just write back and I will assist you.
Good Luck and Congratulations Cbarnard
