Frequent Lockups. Tags: Components Last response: July 29, 2009 12:11 PM in Components Share Anonymous July 29, 2009 9:12:31 AM Hi all. Here's my setup Asus M4A78 Pro mobo AMD Phenom II X3 710 2.6ghz 4gb RAM ATI Radeon 4850 Auzen X-Fi Prelude 7.1 PC Power and Cooling 500w Silencer The system will occasionally just lock up, from just about anything. Opening IE, running a video. It can go hours without an issue, or just a few minutes after booting up. I am running SpeedFan and the temps are as follows: Temp1: 41C Temp2: 37C Temp3: -128C Core: 31C That's at idle. During usage they go about about 10 degrees each, roughly. I have installed all the latest drivers for the mobo, sound card and graphics card, performed a disk defrag and tested the issue with the sound card removed, and the issue still persisted. Help!

Then swap that for the other RAM and see if it locks up. If it locks up with only one particular set of RAM, it could be faulty RAM. Andrew m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
