Thanks for the pointers Alex - I'll chase those up.

My gut feeling is that it may be the mobo. I've had problems with a couple
in the past and it's tending to nudge me in that direction.

I recall that one of the early boards that failed was replaced (free of
charge) by an identical model and I duly set it up with the identical values
to the first. It performed miserably in comparison and it took many days of
testing to discover the cache wasn't working. Had I not had the first board
to show the capabilities of the thing I'd never have been any the wiser.

 [quote]anyone got suggestions as to how you can verify the operation of
mobo,  memory or CPU as individual items?[/quote]


Sorry to hear you are having problems! seems to be the weekend for them!

The best way of verifying your CPU stability is to run this software here:


Its a Stress test that puts your CPU through several benchmarking tests,
It'll tell you if anything is wrong with the CPU - its cleverly designed to
put as little stress on the other components during the test as possible so,
if you get a crash during the test, it will probably also point to CPU

As for RAM, I have previously used this with some success, although if it is
suitable for your PC I am not sure, however search for "RAM Benchmark" or
"RAM Checker" in google and you will find something that works for you.


There are several MOBO checkers available however most of them are payware
and all I have used have been entirely useless. Give the above 2 a go and
let us know if it comes up with anything.

All the best,
