This computer ran extremely well in it's day. One day I went to turn it on and nothing happened. Would not boot past "RAMCHK". I tried swapping the RAM around, making sure to try every possible combination of each stick in each slot, using one or both. Nothing. So I gave up for a few months.
One day I went back to it, installed an air cooler for the time being just to see if I could get it to boot. It does! With nothing changed, it suddenly decides to boot.
So I'm all excited that my desktop is running again. So of course I have to load up Crysis since I havn't played in forever and BAM! 5 minutes in, the screen goes black. I can still hear the background noise but I can;t make any noises myself (ex. shooting runs, running or anything) so there's no input. After about 5 seconds of the black screen the background noise will suddenly go into a 1 sec loop, just plays the same second over and over again, then it will crash completely. Then you'll hear the post beep and it will boot like nothing ever happened!
I can;t quite figure out what's wrong with it. Help!
