I just opened my case and made sure all my pieces were plugged in, I even unplugged my GPU from the pci-e2.0 slot and plugged it back in. And switched my 2 ram sticks from the 2 blue slots closest to the CPU to the 2 white slots farthest away from the CPU. I also am using the second DVI slot on the end of the graphics card instead of the first one in case the first one was bad.
In the bios under PC Heath tab it said my cpu temperature was about 35 degrees celcius. On the desktop it also says my gpu temp is 31 degrees celcius.
Alright well I just played world of warcraft for about 30 minutes, I got one weird screen flash in the game but it hasn't frozen yet. I just alt tabbed out to post on these forums and say everything was working pretty good but I opened the browser and right before I clicked bookmarks the computer flashed weird pixel colors(like blotches of squares throughout the screen), then froze for about 3 seconds, then the screen turned pure white for about 3 seconds. The system sounded like it was about to power down but then it kicked back in and powered up and it started to working again. This is the usual cycle it goes through when it freezes in windows. But when it freezes in games the screen gets all messed up and I haven't waited more then 2 minutes for it to start working again so I would just restart.
While gaming my CPU never went over 40 degrees c and my GPU never went over 50 degrees C.
My computer is failing to synchronize the time online also... and it won't load pandora.com anymore??!?!??!
I think I'm about to try reformatting.
