After swapping a Athlon X2 4600(dualcore) for a Phenom 1 9750(quadcore, 95w) in my
PC(Asrock Alivesata2-glan) it has suddenly started to crash, especially when streaming
video content, but also on a few other occasions. Sometimes it just hangs, and sometimes
the screen goes black(doesn't reboot).
Even though the CPU isn't listed on the
official support page, I've managed to get a beta BIOS(2.61a) from Asrock. According to
them my CPU is tested with the beta and is supposed to work.
Both device and
task manager shows 4 cores. SisoftSandra reports a temperature of 30 celsius.
I've updated the videocard drivers as well as flash.
When I booted up the
machine for the first time after the swap XP(SP3) was installing some new
Even before swapping CPUs a had strange problem. Everytime
before starting up the PC I have to disconnect and reconnect the keyboard for it to be
recognised. Re-installing the (keyboard-)drivers hasn't solved this problem.
Might a clean XP installation solve the problem?
