i recently installed a new system.
P4 prescott 3.2ghz
gig ddr ram
the sytem keeps crashing on windows XP, even after reinstalls, checks etc.. its a completely bare system so no issues with any anti virus software etc..
At first i thought it was heat, so i bought a new beat of a heatsink and fan. The bios says the chips temp is average 58 degrees. I cant seem to get it any cooler than that even with three case fans! and a good amount of good quality arctic silver.
so is this a normal temp as it doesnt feel that hot inside the case? could this crash my system?
or as it keeps crashing toa blue screen (randomly, sometimes on restart, at other times it can run for a few hours befiore crashing) it says page_fault_in_nonpaged_area
after looking on the web, RAM also seems to be a possiblity?
can anyone advise if they have had similar issues please as I dont know where to start with regards to taking bits back and whether it could be software etc?
MANY THANKS IS ADVANCE!!!
