I’m having a nightmare with a new DFI NF4 SLI-DR.
Before I begin here’s my spec’s.
Corsair XMS4400 1Gig
PP&C 510 Sli PSU
6800 Ultra x2 Point of view.
Maxtor Diamond Max Plus 9 160 gig sata.
I keep getting random re-boots.
This can happen anytime, on the internet, benchmarking or even trying to write this.
Have re-installed windows XP many times, have the latest NVIDIA motherboard and graphics card drivers.
Have also tried the older versions of these drivers.
Only using 1 graphics card no Sli, have swapped the graphics cards.
Currently not using the Audigy card using the onboard sound, still re-boots.
It’s not a heat related problem as I’m running the system with on case, CPU temp around 45c chipset around 48c.
The CPU and the memory bios setting are at default.
The extra power supply motherboard connectors are all plugged in.
When the machine reboots I get an error message which allows me to connect to the MS website, this tell me I have a device driver error.
I cannot see what is causing this problem. Have done a fresh re-install of XP tonight, put the new NVIDIA m/b and graphics card drivers installed the USB modem.
And it re-booted its self during the windows update.
During the install on XP very think is fine.
Has anyone ideas what causing this? I getting very frustrated with this have been at it now for over 2 days. Everything works ok with an Asus Sli m/b.
Really sorry for the long description.
Many thanks in advance.
