As some of you may know, i recently assembled a computer with the following parts:
AMD Athlon64 3000+ S939 Processor
Asus A8N SLI Deluxe motherboard
Kingston 2x512Mb PC3200 Ram
Seagate 120GB Sata HDD
Evga 6600GT 128M PCI-E video card
Antec Neopower 480W 24pin power supply
Dell 17 flatpanel monitor and a sony CDRW
now that the sytem is built, i installed Win XP Home Ed. and after completing all the windows updates, i started noticing an increased behaviour in IE and Windows crashing, comuter getting slower and more prone to errors...I formatted the HDD and reinstalled windows and then after completing the installation, a windows system file went missing and so windows wont start..
I build another computer(for my brother) with almost the same configuration as above and the same problem. This time i installed Windows XP home from a different cd as we both have different copies. But even his computer had the same error of crashing, errors popping up and hanging.. Some1 please find a soln to it or its already discussed plz guide me to the correct place...
could it be something to do with the hardware setup..since these were the first 2 pcs we built on our own..
or something to do with teh processor/motherboard and windows?
or could it be the power supply?
or ofcourse something else that i dont know of..
Every1's help will be much appreciated!!!!
P.S. these are the first 2 pcs that i have with Athlon64 processors...my entire life ive been using pentium processors with no problems..thats y the subject mentions athlon64...
