I have currently scrapped an old machine.
It was a p4 3 ghz 1 gig ram pc3200 randeon x800 graphics with sound blaster audigy 2 ze and tv wonder 650 hdtv tuner card
I now have 3.0 ghz pentium d 4mb cache 2 gig pc5400 ddr2 ram radeon x800 sound blaster audigy 2 ze tv wonder 650 hdtv tuner card.
I have replaced power
I get random restarts
i have reinstalled os several times
i have seen errors right before restart -something like drive locked unable to read- The drives are from the old machine they are 120 gig maxtor 7200 rpm. They were formally partitioned. I was wondering if this could be causing my random lock ups? Can the old partitions cause problems?
Should i unpartition them
I am so damn confused i have tried running the computer with just the graphics card and i have the same problem
but again not power ram or motherboard and i hope to god its not my processor it was 200 bucks but its brand new with a 3.8 ghz cooler with artic glacier thermal coolant.
MY other thoughts were sadly cpu, disk drives, graphics card. But my graphics card is brand new too. Just angering me!
My computer is well cooled i have 5 fans
1 large psu fan 2 rear fans cpu fan with funnel and side fan
So my thoughts
not pci slots
Maybye Hard Drives
