Hey man i think its possible that it could be your motherboard, i have had sort of the same problems. Try taking out your video card and using it in a friends pc or reinstalling windows and all drivers maybe.

Sounds like a problem with your drivers most likely.

Sorry i cant be more of help.

could it be a heat issue? if the side exhaust fan blew back onto the chip cpu or graphics card even would that cause freeze because heat was blown onto it? should i reverse airflow out of case? And anyone have suggestions on how to get playback on dvd's?

Is this a tech forum or a post for dating? Where are the gurus?

Did you install all the drivers for your video card and sound card. Also, it's necessary to install alot of drivers and software that should come as a CD with your motherboard.

Do you have integrated video on your motherboard. If so you HAVE to disable it, or there will be a confilct between the two GPU's. Also IF you have integrated video plug into that, take your GFX out. If it boots up you know that your video card/pci-e slot could be screw up.

Check the vid card in one of your friends comp, if it's fine its a mobo problem.
