|That's not much help.|
Apparently, there's no such thing as an Eveshamvale computer. Evesham Vale, yes, but it can be a laptop or a desktop computer, and there's more to the model name in all cases.
That's useless, except it might indicate you might have an Award bios on the computer.
"OS: Microsoft Windows XP Professional"
We already knew you were using XP. It doesn't matter much which version, except, sometimes, if it's XP MCE.
"CPU/Ram: 2.009 GHz / 1535 MB"
Intel or AMD cpu?
2048 - 1535 = 513 mb
You have 2gb of ram installed, you're using onboard video that is using 512mb which the bios is subtracting, and the bios is subtracting 1 more mb for the conventional memory amount??
OR - 1536 - 1535 = 1
You have 1.5 gb of ram installed, the bios is subtracting 1 mb for the conventional memory amount, you have a desktop computer, and you're using a 9550 video card in a slot??
"Video Card: ATI Radeon 9550 / X1050 Series"
"Sound Card: Realtek AC'97 Audio"
The term CARD is frequently mis-used. It's NOT a CARD if it's built into the mboard.
"Realtek AC'97 Audio" - lots of mboard sound chipsets and sound cards have that, although it's more likely it's a simple codec chip and built into the mboard when only AC'97 is stated - that merely means it conforms to the AC'97 standard that was established in 1997. The sound chip could be any age from 1997 until recent.
- you haven't supplied enough info so far for us to be able to tell for sure whether you have a laptop or a desktop computer.
- there is more to your model name than just Evesham Vale .
- look for a label on the outside of the computer case and tell us what it has printed on, other than the official Microsoft label for XP Pro.
- the Evesham model might be displayed on a logo (graphical) screen while the computer is booting on the first screens, or as simply a short text line on the screen on the first screen you see while booting.
- the Evesham model might be shown in the computer's bios Setup.
- If you find nothing to report regarding the model, if this is a desktop computer...
find the make and model of the desktop mboard.
Unplug the case/power supply.
Power off your monitor.
Open up the case by removing the left panel as seen when you're looking at the front of the case.
The model of the mboard is usually printed in obvious larger characters on the surface of the mboard, often between the card slots.
Evesham probably does not make their own desktop mboards, and they probably don't actually make their own laptops - they're probably re-branded laptops made by a laptop maker.
- you have not told us what you mean by crashing.
- are you seeing messages on a blue screen? If you are, tell us what the message is.
E.g. STOP: 0X00000xx, TEXT_WITH_UNDERLINES_BETWEEN
Does it name a specific file? You might have to click on Details or similar to find that.
- is the computer black screening and re-booting for no apparent reason?
- does it "crash" only after the computer has had a chance to warm up? E.g. only after at least 15 minutes after it has had a chance to cool to room temp.
- does it "crash" only when you use (a) certain program(s)?
- does it "crash" only when you're on the internet? If so, that's probably an internet connection problem.
If we don't get enough info from you. you're going to have to do at least this ....
Download and run SIW to find the hardware info about your computer, then tell us what it finds:
