Default Third build

Its in my sig and its the third one.

Every time i start it up and click on the start button it freezes.

So i have to restart the computer and its fine then.

I was just wondering if theres something i could do to stop that from freezing?

Have you tried going into Device Manager and looking to see if there are any problems or conflicts?

ok i think i fixed it. I did the memtest a long time ago.

I went into bios a while ago and the memory was set on auto instead of ddr2 800 which is where its supposed to be cause thats what i bought.

It skips when playing dvd's though. The disks are brand new and i copied them on the hard drive. I just don't know why it skips.

When the disk is in it doesn't skip at all.
