I noticed that my pc started to freeze when I play some(heavy) games. Isnt Temperature(my CPU get Max 55°C=102 °F), BUT my AGP sometimes get 74°C).
Isnt Virus or spyware that freeze my pc too. My power supply isnt so good(Power supply Casemod 550W Leadership) but i think if isnt so good, it would reboot my pc, but my pc just freeze and i need to reboot.
THere is no error msg of something like that, just freeze!
I´ve tried to reinstall the ati drivers, disconnect 2 HD, take 2 Mem Ram off and nothing worked.
Someone have any idea?

well, i´m using the lastest bios here(and damm, they are old that i dont think there will be a new one)
chipset drivers? i just dont get it(yeah, noob), but it is this file:
INF: Intel® Chipset Software Installation Utility
(The Intel® Chipset Software Installation Utility installs the Windows* INF files. The INF files inform the operating system how to properly configure the chipset for specific functionality, such as AGP, USB, Core PCI, and ISAPNP services.)
cuz there is no "new files" for a long time at intel´s site(for my MOBO).
anyway, i´ll try to find the "new" chipset int at´s intel´s site.
"INF Update Utility [INFINST_AUTOL.EXE] (945KB) 184.108.40.2066 "
and i dunno, i run, "install" but it doesnt do nothing, i thinks inst installing.
someone have any idea now? thx mike anyway
It's the drivers, unless there's something else you're not telling me.
If you're running a newer chipset than the BIOS, and vice versa, it causes this. It also might be Windows, if you can, install another Windows Installation on a 2nd partition, or in a different folder. This REALLY sounds like a driver error, make sure everything is up to date for the audio, video, chipset, etc. Run Checkdisk (CHKDISK IIRC) and see if it fixes it (this closes bad sectors of drives that can cause errors and corruption).
In bios set Plug and play OS to NO.
Disable fast writes
IF able shut of SBA
I got a reg tweak in a few moments for d3d detection this will help
Create a new DWORD value for each optional item from the list below and set it to "1" to enable the setting or "0" to disable it.
DisableAGPSupport - Disable AGP support
DisableMMX - Disable MMX processor extensions
DisableWiderSurfaces - Disable Wider Surfaces support
DisableInactivate - Disable dual-head video card debugging
EnablePrintScreen - Enable Print Screen capture
ModeXOnly - Use Mode-X for older video cards
ShowFrameRate - Display the frame rate (if supported)
DisableNoSysLock - Disable long-duration locks on video memory
ForceNoSysLock - Force use of long-duration locks on video memory
EmulationOnly - Enable software emulation layer for older video cards
Open the [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftDirect3D] key and change the value of DisableDP2 to "1" to disable Direct3D, or "0" to enable it.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftDirect3DDrivers] key and change the value ofSoftwareOnly to "1" to use software emulation or "0" to disable it.
Restart Windows for the change to take effect.
