    Hi there, thanks for the info about memory. My Packard bell 2050 has
    developed another problem, I replaced the sound card with a creative
    SB 4.1 and now the computer is switching itself on and off randomly -
    is this card not compatible with packard bell?, I am running win 98
    SE. Does anyone have any ideas on how to deal with this problem,
    unfortunately i have thrown the old aureal vortex soundcard away which
    was in there originally.

    many thanks for info,

    I do not belive the sound card is the problem
    What do you mean by random?
    Switching off where it just goes off and then
    you have to rebboot?
    Or switching off and on where it reboots by itself?

    Off hand it is either a Windows setting or
    a bad power supply
    More info is needed

    Hi there, after i inserted the new soundcard the computer just started
    rebooting itself randomly, although mostly after it started up. I was
    thinking it has to be the new soundcard because it only started
    happening after it was put in - although the fan is a little noisy.

  9. Whats it like with no soundcard installed?

    Another thought, rename your autoexec.bat & config.sys to (autoexec.old &
    config.old) then restart your computer. The sound card may be getting
    conflicting information from those files. Do not delete them incase you need
    to rename them back. However you do not really need them in Wndows 98 on up.

    Write back and let me know how you made out.
