- Sometimes when i play games my pc crashes(freezes) and music continues
like a beep.The pc not restart.I must do it manually.
- When i connect my external hard disk and i transfer data from external sometimes happens the same as before.
- My last problem it happens yesterday with a friend's external hard disk(external power).When I plugged the external drive my screen started to flicker.
Have you tried a different video card to see if you get same problem.
sounds like memory problem to me.
I had same problem when I built my first computer it kept freezing at odd times especially when trying to play games. tried everything flashing bios, updated chipset drivers ,reinstalled windows. tried different video card.
The problem, I'd put memory in wrong slots. should have put them in slot 1&3 not 1&2. computer works perfect. what a plonker.
