originaly, my computer was a 1000mghz athlon with 512 RAM. one day the processor broke and was temporary replaced by a 266mghz. I didn't expect too much from this crappy processor and i was surprised to see how well it was doing... until i tried to play movies. whenever i try, my computer restarts.

i'm stuck with this processor for some weeks and i was wondering if there was something i could do without buying anything

Go into Control Panel / System/ Advanced. Select the "Startup & Recovery" Settings button, and under System Failure unselect "Automatically Restart".

Now you will hopefully see the BSOD Msg that crashes the system. Report back with what you find out.

Are you running win2k?

If so you will need to install the latest service pack. The original win32.sys file is buggy and the service pack will bring it back up to par.


I hope this helps.

It would be helpful to us if you would tell us what operating system your using. There's no way of knowing if you dont tell us.
