Re: Memory crashing my computer?

I checked the Event Viewer, and since I can't pinpoint the time that the last reset was, I can't give accurate information. But I can tell you this: The Event Viewer doesn't have any errors yesterday when I got ...

I just build a new rig and I used the drive to install XP and it read that CD fine, but now that I'm all set up, the drive won't read my driver discs or anything else that I put in it.

well, i tried to clear my CMOS and I think I messed it up even more. Now when I hit the POWER button, everything turns on and then two seconds later a long BEEEEP and then 1 second later the whole system shuts down. Anyone have any opinions?

As always, thanks in advance,

Robert

The only thing I am having a problem with is that I don't know WHERE the cmos jumper or battery in on my mobo. Its the ASUS A7V, but I can't remember if there is anything after A7V or not, but I don't think so, and the manual on asus's website doesn't have a callout for anything that has to do with ...
