Contact the person you bought it from. Why mess with it.

✔ Best Answer
It sounds like memory problems, but with a new system that has been overclocked, it could also be overclock settings. You should take it back for them to evaluate and fix and get what you paid for. It is not a bad system but you probably could have done somewhat better unless you specifically needed XP, then you probably needed to stay with a board and CPU that could support it.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
