Er..my computer tends to reset when using Bittorrent..?

I doubt anyone can help..just thought id check.
It did work initially, but about 6 months ago it just started resetting. I tried using Direct connect but thats too frustrating..
Any ideas anyone?
Its probably just my computer..its barely holding itself together as it is.

What client are you using?

What's your configuration? 98/ME/2K/XP?

Try going to BitTornado's site (www.bittornado.com) and download the memtest app. It may be a bad memory.

It also might be your network card. Some can only manage a limited number of connections before they cause a reset. There are two possible solutions. First: Make sure that you have the latest drivers. Second: If that doesn't work then set maximum peer connections to 50. (Using BitTornado (at the top) click on "Prefs", then at the bottom is a button labeled "Advanced", click on advanced and you'll see a setting called "Maximum Peer Connections" set it to 50.)

I'll second that. Too many connections may cause your system to hang in the worst case scenario (instead of the "normal" internet connection that occurs). Follow NSW's advice, but psst, if you don't happen to like BitTornado, try Azureus.

To attract attention of course - isn't that what a signature is for?
You can still find my Azureus Download Guide here

By all means, make sure to read this.
