I have an emachines e3035 AMD Sempron+3200 cpu,nvidia 6100 integrated graphics card, 120 hdd, 512 ddr@400mhz cl3 ,as far as the motherboard im not sure what it is the only markings that appear to be a model # is K8NGM2 H.
On initial boot up it does absolutely nothing,hard shut down then reboot the machine starts the cpu fan spins up to speed then slows way down. itll run for approx 10 minutes then it gets almost unresponsive. When i say that i mean i can still move the mouse pointer and click on things but it just sits there and does nothing. There is also a random happening with the screen the bottom 1/3 seems to jump to the left/right.
About the cpu it is a socket 939.I have been told that there is 3 different versions of this particular cpu,mine is SDA3200DIO3BW.
My questions are:

1 What are the differences in the cpu's?
2 How can i determine my Motherboard specifically?
3 What is the cl3 in the memory specifications mean?
4 Does anyone have any ideas on my above mentioned problem with it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated
thanx

sorry, I'll skip 1-3 for now. Other readers may also fill in.

4 Does anyone have any ideas on my above mentioned problem with it?


Try with reinstalling the motherboard chipset drivers(platform driver) and the graphic card driver. Both packages are found at www.nvidia.com, navigate from there according to your HW (motherboard nf410/430 chipset, vga g6100/6150)

There are 3 different Sempron 64 3200+s: SDA3200DIO3BI, SDA3200DIO3BP, and yours (-BW.) The differences between the different Sempron 64 3200+s would be the stepping. The -BI is the D0 core revision. The -BP is probably E3 and the BW would be E6 and the last socket 939 Sempron 64. The E steppings normally introduced SSE3, but this was left off of the Semprons, so there is really no difference between the three chips.

You can determine your motherboard by searching for the model number (K8NGM2H) or by using a utility like CPU-Z to read stuff from the BIOS. Your motherboard is an OEM version of the MSI K8NGM2. The product page for the K8NGM2H is available here.

"CL" stands for "Column-address-strobe Latency." In laymans's terms, this is how many memory clock cycles that the memory controller must wait between addressing the next column of memory cells in the RAM. Lower is better, and good 512 MB sticks of DDR-400 will be CL2.
