hi all! i have this problem with my new PC. Sometimes, once a day my comp. crash. Sometime only in winXP (while listening to some music in winamp) in games or even when winXP is loading.

In this moments monitor is going black (no signal from the Graphic Card). The music stops, keyboard is locked but computer is still on. I have to give "him" hard reset.

After that winXP doesn'y say anything ... you like "your system was close in wrong way" or something similar.

I have fresh installed winXP with SP1 - no viruses etc.

my specs are :

AMD64 3000, Gigabyte GA-K8VT800(pro), ATI Radeon 9600 XT, 2x Kingston 256mb, Seagate 7 120 GB Serial ATA 150

Thanx for any help

I think I sayid this in one of these threads before, but ill say it again, XP is a very temperamental system, Im not sure wich you have home or pro, but there are several reasons that this may happen. It could be bios, a program that is not tested on XP that runs on your computer, since it crashes in winamp maybe you should you should look into your sound card, also check your drivers. Im not sure exactly but it sounds like your system is encountering a system failure, go and see if its set to restart when it encounters a fatal eror in your control pannel/System/Advanced/Startup and recovery..

this:

the Omega drivers disable them during installation. I think you have to disable them manually withe the official drivers

I think your problem is the physical memory, try changing the memory.
It happend with me before, and it was a faulty memory stick.
