The bottom line is when I run 3d applications, my system LOVES to lock up... but this lock up is different from any other lockup ive ever encountered. It sounds like almost a static screeching sound and the screen just freezes. There is no alt-tabbing, control-alt-deleting out, the only way to get it back up is to Hard Boot the thing. Ive tried various detonator drivers to no avail. This card used to work fine on windows 98... when I changed the mb and proccesor though, I wiped my HD and went with windows xp instead. Does anyone have any thoughts on how I can fix this? It seems to freeze whenever I run games... but it freezes randomly while the game is running.... I can generally get anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes of gametime before the system freezes like I said, and I have to hard reboot.
Does this "static screeching sound" come out of your speakers, or is some component in your system horribly grinding itself to bits?
If it's out of the speakers, then the only thing I can think of is that it's related to your motherboard. What exactly is a M830 series motherboard?
If it’s some component in your system that’s making this sound then it would have to be a fan failing in a very bad way. This would cause you system to overheat and lock up.
