Recently built a homebuild general purpose/mid-range gaming pc but am now encountering a whole string off odd issues:
(1) internet: connected to the internet but the tool on the taskbar shows I am not connected. Internet is very slow and I am experiencing high ping playing online games. I do not have this issue on my 4 year old laptop. I am using the in-built WIFI on the GA-Z77n-WIFI (http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=...)
(2) games: I installed GTA IV, played it for a bit all fine. However, now I can't start it anymore. The game simply freezes after the intro credits.
(3) random shut downs
(4) other odd little issues
Has anyone ever had issues like this?
My full specs are:
CPU: i5 3470
Mobo: GA Z77N WIFI
RAM: Corsair 8GB dual channel XMS3 DDR3
SSD: 120 GB Samsung 840 series
ah, the 840 series...
if its nto the 840 pro then it may be a failure of ssd, that ssd is known to be particularly prone to failure
Really? I never saw any issues with the 840 on the net... Weird
thats odd, when i was doing my research i was strongly turned away from the 840 due to the numerous bad reports, the 840 pro is amazing though
i doubt that your issue is ssd related, but it might be, and try using ethernet
