Corsair XMS and Abit AN8


Recommended Posts

Ever since I built my machine, I get randome restarts. Nothing constant, usally about once every week at the most. For a while I suspected the power supply, but now I'm leaning more towards the RAM. Example, I was playing Unreal Tournment 2004. Midgame, I got a very fast Blue Screen of Death, then the machine restarted.


Other times this problem occured would be when using my TV Tuner, running Firefox, etc... No set time that it happens. Actually the above game is the ONLY time it's ever reset mid game...


I have an LCD, and as with any monitor, it takes just a second for the screen to show, espcially when changing resolutions. I beleive I actually saw the BSOD because I had the screen at 800x600 for the game(perhaps what it ran at)


Could anyone give me suggetions. Any tests for the RAM or even possible other causes?
