C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini080104-04.dmp
C:\DOCUME~1\goose\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER1.tmp.dir00\sysdata.xml.

Hi,

It's difficult to say. The 2 files listed there are logs of what was happening when it crashed. The minidump file is log of what was in the memory and the sysdata.xml file I believe is part of Microsoft's error reporting tool and contains all the information to send to them.

Thanks for that. Do you think i should just run some programmes like adware and stuff. To see if it will remove anything.

These error are crashes. You can try running such software, but such errors are usualy caused by hardware or compatability faults.

You can stop the PC from auto-rebooting on such errors by doing the following.

Goto the system control panel (WINDOWS KEY + PAUSE/BREAK)
Click the Advanced tab
Click "Settings" in the "Startup and Recovery" section
Untick "Automaticaly restart"

Forget PCProbe / ASUS probe, it is never reliable, even when run on ASUS boards - loads of threads on this all over the place.

Use Motherboard Monitor which is much more reliable and see what it says. To know what sensors are for what, read the motherboard List section of the Motherboard Monitor website.

Then post what the temps, fan speeds and voltages it reports.

You did replace the thermal grease between the heatsink and the processor when you put the processor on the new motherboard. If not, then the CPU may be getting too hot because the thermal tranfer is no good between the CPU and heatsink. Get yourself some arctic Silver 3 or 5.

mbm still gets it wrong.. also the temp sensors on asus boards are WAY off.. mbm reads mine as 40 when a proper probe reads it as 30 (water cooled Wink)

Don't buy cheap ram. Cheap RAM is the cause of most hardware problems.

Where possible, delay upgrades for indefinate periods, so you can save up for a high quality system.
