i built it myself and i had no trouble with it for about a month.
recently i did a clean partition - quick format - installation on win xp professional using my win xp cd becoz of a spyware i could not get rid of.
i had installed only the basic stuff (dx 9.0c , vid drivers , mobo drivers, and a norton internet security 2005 i got with the 6600gt)
i installed warcraft 3 + frozen throne as i am a war3 battle net player.
and when i ran war3 it just suddenly froze. and i mean a bad froze.
the music stalled and kept repeating. my monitor light went back to orange (usually only happens on stand by mode when u turn your pc off)
num lock or caps lock light wouldnt turn on or off. just froze. had to press reset. i thought oh shit so i re installed war3 , and it did it again. mind u i have legit versions of war3 + frozen throne since i play battle net.
it did it everytime i ran warcraft. but the problem is it doesnt do it on the same part of the game , its random , somtimes it freezes as soon as i start the game , sometimes during gameplay. and recently it sometimes does it while surfing the net.
i thought maybe my cpu or gpu is over heating (unusual since i didnt over clock any of them) but i checked the temps anyway , my cpu is running at 32 - 38 degrees all the time and my gpu runs at 55-63 degrees ( degrees celcius i'm an aussie) just incase u dont know those temps are normal.
so i uninstalled norton 05 thinking its clashing with my war3 , and still same problem. and i doubt dirext x or my mobo or vid drivers are clashing with war3 since it was fine b4 i re installed eveything due to the spyware. and i dont think the spyware is still on my comp after a full partition and re format ( i only have one partition and one hard disk) and the spyware isn't popping up anymore so i doubt thats it.
if u guys have any suggestions or any clue to what problem this is it would be GREATLY appreciated.. Thank you in advance
ps. b4 i uninstalled norton internet security 05 i got latest updates and sis a spam and virus check and it was all clear....
