    a geforce fx 5500 256mb running on win xp

    i keep on gettin the blue screen most of the time when it loads win xp
    mostly i think it is my video card or my ddr ram crashing i put my
    voltage adjustment on the rams to auto so it wont crash as often now
    but its running really slow when it loads the voltage settin is
    either 2.5 2.6 or 2.7 i didnt really try other settings but can
    anyone tell me which one would run the best with out it crashing as
    often n as long as its good enough to move around when it loads o_O
    please ?
    and my video card crashes often or wont b able to load a game too i
    don't know anything about settin the video card making it stable n
    wont crash in windows sometimes or in a game please help me outs !

    Take a big breath and raise your spirits.
    Just take it one step at the time.
    At what 'level' do we need to help you with this? How much do you know
    to get right?
    Who built the PC, - you?
    You don't have a 256MB agp aperture, I hope? Set it to 64MB!
    What are your settings, FSB 166GHz/333 and memory 166GHz/DDR333, I
    hope?
    And what kind of PSU do you have?
    Your temps alright?
    Do you have any extra peripheral installed, that you can remove? Try
    to get it to work on a minimal config, video, hd, cd, first.
    Who Installed XP, - you?
    (and it was installed onto this particular config, I trust? You
    haven't foolishly moved the install from another PC, right?)
    Is Windows XP fully updated from MS online 'Windows Update'?
    Does 'dxdiag' report any problem?
    Then: what are your debugging options. Is the 512MB ram in two 256MB
    sticks? Try one at a time.
    Do you possess an alternative videocard?
    Can you 'borrow' an alternative ATX PSU from another PC?

    about ram problem I don't know, but for nvidia
    crashing try downloading latest Nvidia Detonator drivers!
    they fixed crashing on most games on my comp!

    And your power supply is made by whom and what rating?

  5. Do you have two dimms of RAM or one? If two, try booting with just one
    in place. If that works OK, swap with the other and try again. That
    may tell you something.

    Did you just built this PC?

    i kno about enough i order the pc online and set in the video card mah
    self mah aperture size is on 64mb my settin for fsb clocking is
    166mhz and i dunno how much it is on my memory dun really know how to
    set memory fsb clock
    my psu is 350wattz
    temperature is about 47 c right now hehe its hotter today usually is
    lower my peripheral should b around minimal config already
    i installed the xp from professional version i format mah comp and
    installed win xp home edition cause it was causin too much error
    maybe cause the cd was scratch up
    yes is fully updated now but then i think its blocking me from
    extracting .cab files
    there was no problem found on my dxdiag
    i only have 1 512 ddr 400 pc 3200 ram
    wells my motherboard does not come wit a onboard vid card so i guess
    there is no alternative vid card unless i bought this vid card some
    where else n i manually installed it if u call that as an
    alternative
    nop cant borrow atx psu from another pc
    i guess it was the rams voltage setting on too high i put it on 2.6
    now i see less of the ~blue screen of death~ lol but theres still
    problems with my video card i think
