I build my pc at ibuypower and received it a while ago.....lately my pc would randomly freeze and make beep noise and other times it will just freeze and won't make beep noise.
i tried changing the graphics card but didn't help. I also tried adjusting voltage to my RAM in BIOS setting but that didn't help either.
Couple things i noticed, it's usually freezes when my pc is hot or when i am watching video but not all the time. sometimes i would be using the computer for 5 minutes and it will freeze other times all over half an hour or hour.....
asus p5n-d motherboard, nvidia gforce 9800 GT video card, intel core 2 extreme cpu x9650 3.0GHz , 3gb of RAM, liquid cooling system, runs xp (used to be vista), liquid cooler
I don't know a lot about computers ...i am just confuse since i got a liquid cooling system, do i put liquid literally into my system? which I doubt....
thanks for any and all help. if I have posted in the wrong section please tell me what is the right section because I looked and couldn't find it.
if the cooler is a closed loop (all enclosed), you dont need to check. its fine
i didnt say anything about overheating.
can you check the volts coming from the psu in the BIOS. the volts must be around the same as what the meter is supposed to read (if its 3.3v, it should be reading around that area). check for the 5v rail and the 12v rail
no. you got a crappy power supply. get a new one. i personally think it is the power supply is causing the problems because its not supplying the proper voltages. if a new power supply doesnt fix the problem, its the motherboard
