Lately (last month) my Abit IT7 w/P4 1.6 has been cranky. Had to\nreinstall W2K right before Christmas and this past weekend after\ninstalling a DVD burner the BSOD returned. Was unable to even\nreinstall W2K from boot CD, getting the infamous "If this is the first\ntime you've seen this screen....remove any new hardware and try, try\nagain...."\n\nSystem had been stable for almost a year.\n\nSo, tried w/the old CD drive in place and the same occurs - random\nstops/crash/reboots while browsing or just copying files. Instant\nreboot w/any games.\n\nI tried turning off the L1 and L2 cache just for grins and the install\ndid finish (I think - it was still going when I left for work) but\ntook a looonnnnggg time (i.e overnight) and didn't get the BSOD (yet).\n\nCPU was purchased used and was OC by previous owner and of course\noverclocked by me. So does this sound like perhaps a bad CPU or\nperhaps a powersupply issue?\nI'm guessing CPU...or maybe bad capacitors (didn't see evidence of the\ncapacitors, but haven't looked closely).\n\nI've ran memtest86 overnight and no errors were logged.\n\nI have ran scandisk w/surface scan and no errors occurred.\n\nCPU and case temperatures are all within specification.\n\nSystem Specifications:\n\nAbit IT7 w/latest bios\nP4 1.6c OC to 1.9mhz\nStock heatsink and fan w/AS3\n256 Mb of Micron pc2700 RAM\nPowercooler ATI Radeon 9700 (upped to pro via bios upgrade).\nAntec tower case w/300W powersupply (problem now?)\nPlextor 706a DVD burner\n(had a HP CD burner)\nWestern Digital 80mb and 40mb drives\nWin 2K (had all the latest SP)\n\nAnyway any help/comments/taunts would be greatly appreciated.\n\nM.
