I'm having problems with the pc just freezing after running for a while.

I've been trying the following settings in the BIOS

Internal Cache
External Cache
L2 CacheECC

With just the internal turned on it'll run for a while before freezing.
With all three disabled the pc runs overnight without locking but is so slow as to be unusable.

I've tried different memory sticks and graphics card and get the same problems.

I was wondeering if anyone could tell me if this is the mobo or the cpu that is likely to be dodgy

appreciate any help

Welcome to the forum, Fatboy!

First of all is this all of the sudden or has it been going on for a while?

Please afford us the system specs as best you can also (cpu, mobo, ram, vid.).

Usually you run with internal and external on, but give us the specs before we make any rash decisions.

Its the usual friend with my pc's been playing up line and no idea how long it's been doing it so the spec is as follows:

AMD Athlon 1ghz
MSI MS6191 Board
512mb PC100 Ram
Riva TNT 32mb m64

i've tried switching the ram and video and still get the same problems

I have a feeling it's the cache on the cpu that's causing the problem.

Welcome to the board fatboy :),

Anyway...:D... What does the system event viewer say just prior to the freeze? Is there any information at all in the error log?

It could be the CPU is getting to hot try running MB5:

One last question, does it lock up at a certain point, or withing a certain amount of time?, or is it just random?

Post back with the above info and Ill see if I can think of anything else.
