i suspected it was a case of bad contact? but i opened up the cpu and clean up a lil bit, unplug and plug the contact wires back. i'm still getting the error. i asked in another forum, but i'm still not getting anywhere. =/
i want my comp to boot perfectly each time, not getting errors randomly. it's really frustrating. can anyone help me?
my computer is a dell XPS420 factory build.
intel core 2 quad q6600 2.4ghz

256mb nvidia geforce 8600gts
on the psu: make - dell, model - L425P-00, dc output - 425W
i have never customly upgraded any hardware. any help is much appreciated, thanks
