hi i just built my computer and it freezes once every 5-10 hrs
ctrl alt delete doesnt work but fans are still running
ive tried reinstalling xp but that doesnt seem to help
i have a q6600, p5q-e, patriot 4gb, 9800gx2, and 620hx
need more info, CPU stock speed? speed of ram, speed ram is running at?
that kinda stuff.
you say random, you mean the PC is just sitting there idle like over night,
or are you playing games, copying files, playing movies, or all of the above that kind of random, etc?
Will it freeze even if you're not doing anything? And when it freezes, is the screen still there? If you've some time, you might try disabling all power saving options (so the screen doesn't go dark), turn on Task Manager to monitor CPU/Memory usage, and let it sit. When it finally freezes, you'll be left with a Task Manager shot of the computer final moments, and be able to verify whether there's been anything abnormal going on. Just possibility. Assuming that you've got the latest BIOS in the board, my money's on the RAM.
