Major Issue - Freezing/Locking Up
I have a 3ghz P4 thats approaching 2 years old. It has an 80GB SATA main drive and a 300GB SATA I use for a slave.
The last few months its been freezing up. It will do it at random, but pretty much only if the computer is loaded with task. I leave this on 24/7 and it doesnt lock up idling.
When this thing freezes it stops the cursor in its tracks. The sound stops, everything stops. Nothing will work, you have to manually turn it off and back on again.
It locked up this time, and the music started cutting out and it acted as if it had way too much to do, like it was outta ram and having issues. But thats not the case. Finally when it was doing that after about 10 seconds it locked up. Thanks for any suggestions on this. I think i'm going to try a new main harddrive tomorrow but hate to waste the money.
