Just built a pc with all new gear except using old floppy and old case.
Terrible trouble installing OS, either XP or 98 as machine switched
self off during installation at variable places of the process. I
persisted ( foolishly?); replugging, reconnecting, blowing on plugs,etc
etc. I even bought a new case, thinking perhaps it was my powerswitch on
my old case that was faulty. Things seemed sorted and I finally
installed XPPro. Finally now I have WinXP Pro running OK I think,
except that when I log into online game Everquest, the same problem
happens, the machine just powers off. Needs about a minute before boot
AMD 64 3000 with provided cooler and fan
2 x 500mb DIMM 400 twinmos branded
asus A8N-SLI 64bit
sparkle GeForce 6600GT PCI Express 128mb
550w powersupply atx colorsit big fan
160gb Maxtor sata
IIyama visionmaster pro 454 19" CRT
I checked temp of MB and of CPU with asus probe, and thats OK, as well
as MB voltages etc. Fans working OK.
I have tried plugging extra power for the PCI-E card to the MB, and that
makes no difference. MB manual says that extra power supply is only
when using two graphics cards anyway.
As my current craze is trying to continue playing Everquest2... I am
getting pretty frustrated.
I would be grateful for any suggestions at all !!
Re: power crash on new PC OS installation and now games
PSU is Colorsit 550...never heard of them. could a poor supply explain
all the installation probs and the current probs running intensive
I reinstalled the motherboard in new case, the widgets look ok
and everything closed o course today...
