Sorry to hear of your computing malfunction Jim. First thing you should do though is take Merlin'* advice;

Remove the checkmark for "Automatically Reset"

If it'* a software (or maybe even a RAM error) this will cause the BSOD to stay on your screen and give you a STOP code which we might be able to use to track down the error.

Let us know if you get any STOP codes....
As others have mentioned, it would have been worthwhile to diagnose the error before changing parts. Mind you a good power supply is aways a good idea.

To test memory, go to this site and download the free test;

http://www.memtest86.com

Very simple to use with more info here;

BTW, AMD makes awesome chips in many ways superior to Intel (which I have 5 systems), just got to get a good chipset like nForce. Chipsets are the biggest factor affecting the user experience, Intel still has good products there.

Cheers,

thats so true the only area that intel processors are faster than amd is mpeg decoding, and amd is quickly gaining on intel in that area

It just happened again. Question. I have diactivated my SP2 firewall, and deactivated the Automatic Restart.

How do I find the stop codes if something goes wrong?

Hmm, a .sys file. I'm thinking driver issues. Have you tried reinstalling windows?

I found this while Googling for solutions

Seems to be motherboard related

And typically I believe it has to do with the on board ethernet card, since it dies whenever browsing or downloading.

That could very well be it. You could try a couple of things.

1.) Clear the BIOS settings.
2.) Reflash the BIOS.
3.) Warranty the MB.

or

4.) Try to reinstall Windows.

Jimbo.... do you have a real video card.... or is it built into the motherboard?

The file nvenet.sys seems to be a Nvidia file.... which has to do with your graphics.

You should update your Directx software, and update your video drivers (if you have a nvidia card... which I assume you do).

Jason, I have an onboard nVidia as well as a Radeon All in Wonder, I dont care which one I use, so, I will disconnect the Radeon card and used the motherboards' on board system.

The nVidia drivers are up to date. I believe its a devices thing, to many devices, not enough IRQs (device slots?)
