Hi guys. Well I came home from work today and I decided I was going to install ventrilo once I did I connected to the server and then began playing my online game. The new MOH. All of a sudden the game froze. I had to hit the restart button in order to get out of it... Well I tried again with no avail. Next I was just fooling around in windows and it froze. So now every time I boot up my computer it seems to freeze about 10 minutes into being on ( faster if I turn on a game). How can I resolve this? I already did a system restore with no positive result. Tomorrow I guess I am going to check the video drivers for the latest version.

Any thoughts?


My system spec's are as follows:

CPU
Intel i7-930

Motherboard
Asus P6X58D Premium

Memory
6GB G.Skill DDR3 1600

Graphics Card
2X - Evga GeForce GTX 470's SLi

CPU cooling
Cooler Master V8

OS
Windows 7 x64 Pro

How does your system run after you've uninstalled Ventrilo?

What is ventrilo? Not familiar. I would also check heat in case that's an issue.

please check the cooling of your CPU. Run temp monitor program of your choice. Check the contact between CPU and heatsink. CHeck temps of your GPU as well. Let us know after that is done.

Ok, What Ive done so far is:

1. removed the case. checked for lose connections, pressed everything in nice and firmly.

2. Uninstalled old graphics and sound drivers, then installed the new ones.

3. Ran the Best Buy geek squad hardware test and stress test CD I had (Everything passed)

4. I am now running memtest but looks like it is going to pass that as well...

btw before i did any of that i was monitoring the temps and the temps were normal on everything right before it froze.
