I am running an AMD XP 2000+ with 512 MB Ram, on a K7S5A ECS Mainboard. I am also currently running MS Windows 98SE and Windows 2000 (Dual Boot). Every so often the system(s) crash. I don't know whether this is down to a problem with the OS, or the BIOS upgrade that was recently performed, or whether there is a problem with the mainboard, or memory. One thing I have tried is to lower the Clock and DRAM settings to 100MHz, instead of 133MHz - this seems to have done the trick (for now) but is there anything else I could try in order to get the PC running at full speed? I've checked the PC for viruses, but found nothing. Could it be the CPU overheating? Bad memory? Any ideas?

Yes the problem could very well be due to those two things. Make sure the CPU fan is well attached/seated on the CPU. Also run a memory test, check out HOW TO - Test your system memory?
