    I have a Allendale E6400 Dualcore Overclocked to 3.2 ghz, 2 gigs of
    DDr2 ram.

    I have to quit programs before i can run others even now i can't bring
    up the task manager as it wont work, useing control,alt,del ??

    Everything seems to work fine for maybe an hour and it all falls to
    crap. The pc is 100% stable i can play a game just fine. But i can
    only have one thing running.

    I was thinking memory leak but, i get no warning sor nothing and i can
    run things fine, just one at a time ?

    What has happened ?

    Get process explorer from sysinternals.com and see what is really
    happening/running on your system. Its free.

    Re-read your own first paragraph and ponder what might be wrong.

    You are most likely OVERHEATING the CPU over time with your overclocking,
    and it is cutting back to one core.

    You're trying to tell me that you don't see the irony of this?

  7. It's a BIOS problem, your clock speed is set out of spec.
    That's a software question. Ask in a Windoze group for best results.

    I could run more than 1 programs with my single-core 386SX long time ago.

    The key is not the number of cores, but the damage caused by
