I have a custom build PC with Windows XP and SP2. The computer was working fine for about a week until one day I switched it on and it bleeped three times. After checking the manual I think that it was a Memory problem. I switched it on again and it seemed to work.

The problem now is since then I have had a few BSOD (blue screen of death) but yet windows would eventually load. Now after i open a program eventually I will get a Windows Send Error Report. For example when playing songs on Windows Media Player after a while it will come up.

Its a real strange problem but its really annoying, especially since the computer is brand new and was working just fine. I am more than happy to expand on specific parts of this post if I havent made myself clear.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Nick :cheesy:

maybe a heating/powersupply issue?

Does this sound like the right symptons for it and would your therefore recommend a new power supply or do you think that perhaps it could be my copy of XP or my motherboard?

Thanks so far

well the beeps are deffinatly not windows related, thats something wrong with the hardware, but it sounds like you fixed that by reseeding the ram modules, however the blue screens of death could be that you powersupply wasnt deleriving enough power at a certain instant, or it could also be windows problem...you might benifit from a reinstall of windows, however if i were you i would do a windows repair first.

A reinstall of windows has not fixed the problem. I will swap with a different power supply and try reinstall windows again. What does a windows repair mean and how do I do it?

Thank you

Can you supply us with your computer specs ?? I mean the hardware part ....

Its an AMD Athlon 3200+ (2.2Ghz) 1024 DDR RAM. 160 gig hard drive, 128 mb graphics. Its an MSI motherboard. All relevant drivers are installed. Its a 350w power supply if that helps in any way. As ive mentioned its Windows XP service pack 2 :)

Tried changing the power supply but still no luck. Any other ideas? I hope supplying my specs have helped.

The error message that I get are like this...
