Having problems with your Dell Optiplex GX270 ?

Dell Optiplex GX 270 crashing on the Internet

\015 My Dell Optiplex GX 270 was upgraded to 2.5 mg memory and to Bios version 7. Since that it chrashes regulary when I am on the Internet, in Skype, Google Earth or play an internet video. It may crah then run well for hours or crash shortly again. None of this happens when I am not on the internet. I have a good and stable internet connection>Any recommendations?\015

Answers :

\015\012Download a "stress" testing programme called Prime95 and read instructions / run it through. I assume that ALL the ram matches perfectly. If this tester crashes PC alot, remove one ram stick at a time, may actually narrow the offender down. Also bear in mind that a programme could also be crashing PC so try using control Alt Del and go into "processes" and shut down ONE at a time / retest. This will take time but will narrow down the offender. You actually only need to run Prime 95 for a short time.....till it crashes PC. Eventually once you have stability the PC should run with no probs overnight!!
