I've built my own system recently but it never posts...
I never hear the beep but the system always starts up and runs. Along with that I'm also having other difficulties with the system; often times it freezes. Sometimes it freezes when I am just surfing the web or doing something else, but most of the time it freezes when I am playing a game. The system also has a tendancy to freeze up at the windows loading screen.
I'm kind of frustrated with it so any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time and if you need any more information please ask.
After doing EVERYTHING in the thread shortstuff posted, do the following:
Run Prime95 with Real Temp (or another CPU temp monitor). What are the minimum and maximum temps?
Make sure the RAM settings are set to the manufacturer's specs in BIOS. Then download MemTest86+, burn the ISO image to a CD and boot from it. Let it run overnight to fully test the RAM. Did it complete with no errors or messages?
