  • why does my set up reboots on me ??

    hi all
    im after a bit of help if poss so ill give me specs 1st ;)

    xp pro sp1
    gigabyte ga-7axp with raid agp x 8
    512 ddr @ pc3200 OCZ
    2 maxtors h/d @ 7200 1 @ 20g 1 @ 40g
    radeon 9700
    soundblaster live 5,1
    cd r/w and a dvd drive
    400 watt psu

    i think the bus is set 2 133 .........the cpu muiltplyer is @ defaults ram is @ 400

    ok well hear me prob ..........when i had a geforce 2 64 meg jobee it was a ok @ the above setting setting ...........all the benchmarking would loop encoding rending it was stable as a rock
    but then i put in my radeon 9700 and it would reboot when i got 2 the nature part in 3dmark .....
    so i put me ram down 2 333 and it was a ok again .......

    can any of u dudes out there with more experance then me give me any things 2 try so i can run my ram @ 400 not 333 please

    ive had manny people say diff things but not sure if they know whats whats if u get me :)
    some was saying disable cpu host clock control and enable spread spectrum modulater .............setting the agp aperture size to 256 mb and something about the cas latency and pre charge ......... now that just goes over my head
