Remove everything from the PC which you isn't part of originally, like gaming card, printer etc. Then check if the problem persists. If not then we know if it is something caused by some addition, or whether it is from something it came with originally. Also, most Dells today come with a recovery partition from which you can restore the system to factory defaults. Use that to restore the system, then check if the problem persists. Also, most Dells don't come with separate installation media, so if you haven't done so already, after the factory restore, make sure you make your own recovery DVDs/CDs. There should be a utility installed that allows you to do that. That's always the first thing to do.

Thanks rindi for your suggestion, however pl note the steps I have already performed

> My system came with Utility Partition also with the OS Media / Recovery Disks
> Removed Killer Gaming Card, Printers, even Lan Connection  - Bang still remains
> Removed 3 gb Memory and tried with only 1 Gb - no go
> Did Pc Restore without any additonal cards - Issue remains
> Did OSRI Issue Remains
> Diags on System Board + Proc + Memory passes
> Have come to a conclusion that it could be Processor itself - still rethinking on replacement

So you did the restore using the recovery disks and not any other XP version you had? And the problem shows up without having added any extra hardware?

Diags on system board doesn't test everything. As processors hardly ever die, it is more likely a mainboard issue.

Does your BIOS have the option to turn on or off features you don't need? If yes, try the different settings there. Also, if there is something like a "FailSafe" setting, try that. Is it possible to attach a screen shot of your device management window?

Also run siw, a utility that lists your hardware etc., it may give some more details on the faulting option.

I am running Vista not XP .. Formatted Hdd with Vista DVD - I have got Danish Version on the pc .
No such option like FailSafe
I was able to generate a System Health Report of Vista - Looks All Clean and no flaws
Will run siw & update you further, thanks a lot for this suggestion :)

I wanted to say Vista, sorry. The failsafe would be in the BIOS if it exists.
